Hello everyone I just fixed the infamous left side oil leak but trying to put everything back in place my starter clutch will fit too deep in the shaft and not spin, I took a picture before disassembling everything and its the one I am using as reference, where a screw with a metal piece I refer to as the "keeper" does not let the starter clutch spin freely...whats the right way????
(including my reference picture plus pictures of now馃憞馃徏馃憞馃徏, in the pictures of now the starter clutch wont spin one bit)

Just looking at the pictures, I see one difference right away.
I noticed that the "keeper" is in a different position in one picture than what it appears to be in the other 2. This is the zoomed in view of the one that appears to be wrong.

Yes, its in that position that I am able to put the keeper after the starter clutch is already in the position it should, all of the yt videos say to insert the started first and then the keeper, but that way i cant get the screw in its hole and the starter in between both metal pieces of the keeper..... and if i insert the starter clutch and the keeper at the same time then the screw wont tighten all the way without making so much contact with the starter clutch that it doesnt let it spin.....hence my dilemma 馃槙

Emil is correct- the keeper needs to be on both sides of the gear. You are correct, the keeper goes on after the gear is in place. I think that the problem is in how you are inserting the keeper鈥.wish I could be more helpful鈥..

Make sure to bend it back as close to the original shape as you can.
