The actuator arm is installed correctly greased and pointing towards rear of bike. The clutch push rod or bucking bar
will slide out and is well lubed. I can feel the ball bearing with a screw driver head but cannot remove. Believe it is stuck in grease. I have tapped the flower nut and the rod with a plastic mallet (other similar posts). No further movement. Still preventing actuator cover replacement. Cover was on when I mounted the engine. Any other ideas?
