    here is what i did.
    1. i take the flower off.
    2. i take the clutch plate off.
    3. i see the pads.
    in this situation, should the left side sprocket move freely, mine does not.
    with the clutch put together no matter how much i adjust it, it would not didengage. what is the matter with this crappy clutch please help me. thank you.

    There are many tiny bearings in the large clutch gear... they probably went bad!
    Jim (manic mechanic) posted a comp drawing of the clutch assembly here somewhere.

    Pull off the large gear with the gear puller tool that came in the engine kit & see if the bearings are bad.

    If it's a new kit, turn the center nut on the ring gear with the plug wrench. It'll pop free, just stuck from sitting.

    First time builder here, I just turned that "flower" nut out about 360 degrees,put that stop bolt back in, after checking clutch lever(and looking at clutch plate turning and not turning with clutch lever pulled in and letting it out).If someone said the exact thing sorry in different way excuse me.xct2xct2xct2xct2xct2xct2
