I have a 96 harley and I got a new clutch from the dealership. They assured me it will fit. I took off the necessary parts to mount it and it goes on the post but the threads clearly wont be exposed enough to put the nut on. The guy told me they don't make the clutch assembly like they did in 96 and have updated it with the new clutch. I put the chain on for another test and the compensator spocket is far to short to make it to the post. I really need some help here and I'm 99.9 % Sure they gave me the wrong clutch.

Re: clutch repair 96 harley
Well, you can be 100% sure that this is the wrong clutch. Set the two side by side and you should be able to notice the difference. Take your old assembly with you, and have them match it up. 95-96 were somewhat transition years, especially the 95. However, depending on the model, the 94-99 clutch assembly should work. If you want to get back to me with the your model, and the exact parts you need, I'll see if I can get the exact part numbers for you.

2 possibilities here. First, the solenoid and bendix are working correctly and the starter is kicking in. You will hear and be able to feel a "clunk" on the primary cover if you touch it. This means the overrunning clutch is going bad. (Can be called starter clutch, sprag clutch, etc. depending on the shop). About $40, but hard to install if you aren't at least a semi-experineced mechanic. Second, you have a failing solenoid (the pull-in coil) or the actual starter bendix is hanging up. Replace the solenoid and clean the starter. (DON'T use gasoline! Get some quick evaporating spray cleaner from the autp parts store.) If that fails, it looks like it's new starter time. Check all your wires and conncetions. Ya don't want to waste money on parts when a good cleaning with a wire brush could fix it.
Its not a tough fix, You need what is called a starter clutch pack. NOT a new Starter. Your problem may be tools. You need two long allen wrenches. You need to remove ypur primary cover to remove the bolt in your jack shaft. You need to remove the wires to the starter. ALWAYS disconect your battery if you dont want to see sparks fly. Then its wiggle wiggle wiggle to get the starter out at times its necessary to loosen and lift oil bag. Depends on how much after market chrome you have also. good luck.
I would check the starter clutch its self first. It is a one way clutch so if you remove the starter and disassemble it to the starter clutch and hold the starter clutch in one hand and use your other hand to turn the starter clutch gear, it should only turn in one direction.
I just had a mystery sqeak that took two different shops to find. Same symptoms, but mine turned out to be a bent piece of the part that indexes the brake pad on my front end. it was dragging on the rotor. The wrenchers at our local HD shop had no luck after 13 days, but the extreme sport jockies found it inside thirty minutes. Might not be your problem at all, but it could be.
To my knowledge a 96 Mitsubishi Eclipse use a dual ignition system; two (2) ignition coil, 2 power transistor and two trigger. It would be necessary to do a trace/voltage check of the signal (flow) from the triggers (yellow and yellow/red wires) to the power transistor block output (yellow/green and yellow/blue wires) that goes into the ignition coil pair. Each coil provides the spark to a pair of plugs. The defective component would then be determined by process of elimination (which does not have a signal/voltage).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
