    Welcome to the forum. What part of the clutch are you having problems with.

    on my engine i have a swing arm looking thing and the wire is supposed to be fed through it so that when you pull in the clutch i pulls the swing arm in but i dont know how to keep the wire from sliding out and they show in the instalation guide a golden piece attached to the swing arm

    There should be a small set screw on top of the clutch arm , where the cable slides thru snug up slack in cable and tighten set screw.

    the wire then is incerted through the slot in the "swing arm" (clutch actuator arm) and allow the "golden" wire end clamp with the set screw in it to set into the small hollowed out area near the end of the swing arm area. You can put vice grips on the swing arm, mildly disengage the clutch supplying pressure via the vice grips and thread the cable into the slot and engage the cable catch (with the set screw) into the hollowed out portion. Adjust the cable so when you engage the handle grip for the clutch you have a small amount of slack in the cable, about 1/8". This should be close enough for testing. Adjust as necessary.

    Hope this brings further clarity.
