hi guys i recently got a whole clutch rebuild kit with everything that is involved with a clutch besides the basket inner hub and pressure plate.i took down all the notches in my basket as necessary, and i went to go install everything and ended up breaking the old pusher bearing with a wrench trying to move the actuator. now i have new everything and still the same issue exists.the actuator is nearly impossible to budge by hand witch i remember being able to do before tear down. i am hoping somebody can help me with some general or specific tips on how this clutch is normally installed.any helpful knowledge or tips would be greatly appreciated.

I stared at this clutch for awhile trying to figure out how it worked, most clutches the spring bolts need a certain torque. It this one looks like the bolts over the springs should be tightened until they are completely bottomed out becae you push the plate and it pushes that inner basket away if the bolts aren't completely bottomed out the plate would slide on the bolts doing nothing for a bit until the plate bottomed out on the rods the bolts thread into and started pushing it away, other than that there is that big tube spacer that I almost forgot to put on the shaft before putting the rest of the stuff on
