Default Re: Need guidance with first build!

First, Thank all of you so much for offering your thoughts!
I tried 2door's method of levering the sprocket with a screwdriver and it broke free, this also allowed me to "flex" the clutch when I remounted the lever.
cannonfish, you had a good thought, would've tried it next had the screwdriver application not worked.
I talked to a friend close by and he mentioned removing the piston and such (but advised it would only be worth while if it was used) but since it was new and I wouldn't want to void the warranty I strayed away from that idea.

Everything is now installed and the only thing I'm currently having trouble with is what length should I set the default gap on the carb? It came closed (no gap).

Also, any advice on breaking in a new engine and such is welcome!
