Yes #7 & 10 must be in the right spots they are different, and also #8 steel is one of a kind and must be on the very outer side. Also check if # 12 & 11 are in their proper spot and direction .what do you mean by the fibers? I’m assuming you’re talking about the friction plate? The friction plates can be placed in either direction, I believe it was just the metal plates that had the preferred direction.
The metal plates were placed with the sharp edges pointing outward as several videos were recommending. I also stacked the plates as directed in the service manual.

The Pull rod is not engaging on the cable lever. You should not be able to move the clutch cable lever by hand with-out alot of force. Yours is moving to easily. Put some grease on the Pull rod so as engagement to the lever will help to line up...Alright here it is. I’m putting the clutch back together and it won’t disengage the gears. Tell me what I’m doing wrong!
Disregard the crispy metal plate at the end - that’s the old plate as I bent the one I ordered - getting a new one tomorrow.
Yes used lithium soap base grease on the teeth and on the base of the pull rod to keep it from moving while attaching the cover .Are you suggesting placing grease on the pull rod teeth? Is there a grease you’d recommend?
Keep playing with it until you can place the side cover on with-out any bolts placed and then pull on the clutch lever a bit and it will push the cover outward then you know they are lined up .So even with the cover completely on you think there’s enough wiggle room for the teeth to not align with the connecting teeth? Seems very snug. But placing grease on the base of the pull rod is a smart move…
