Sorry about the lame picture. Here's possibly a novel way (haven't seen it before anyway) of holding the clutch basket while center nut is being torqued: put a penny in the gear under the clutch basket. Put another penny at top of clutch plates. Use C-clamp and tighten against the bottom of clutch basket and the penny. It doesn't really have to be very tight, just snug. Torque the nut to 80 ft pounds! Couldn't figure out how to hold the center from spinning w/o some elaborate method, special tool, or fabrication so came up with this tonight...

I have my engine right side all put together.
