There is a clutch adjustment. You can adjust it on the cable under the black boot is an adjster. You can also adjust it at ball and ramp. Unless you've been slipping the clutch a lot, I don't believe you need to redo the basket.

Starter makes grinding noise.... Can you help me? 1997 heritage softtail.

The first thing I'd check is the jackshaft and the ring gear on the outer clutch hub. Disconnect the battery. Drain and remove the outer primary. Inspect the ring gear and jackshaft looking for "roughness" on the teeth of the two gears of broken teeth. If you find any, you'll have to replace the parts.

If those parts look good, your problem is probably the "starter clutch" inside the starter. This is the one way bearing type device that allows your starter to turn the engine over but then freewheels the starter once the engine does start. This part can be replaced without having to purchase an entire starter but you'll have to disassemble the starter to replace it.

Good Luck

Reinstalling oil pump and cams on a 2003 Harley Davidson FLSTC

Absolutely!!! Have you replaced the stock cams with gear driven cams? On almost all cams there are "dots" or "circles" to mark where the cams should be. Additionally if using gear driven cams depending on who makes them there may some additional installation considerations, grinding for clearance, etc.
Also refer to the cam documention on piston position when installing. Hope this helps.
