hey dont think i understand this sorry lol is ther any pic. or could you explane a little more thanks.For the last part once the engine is back together the gear mesh will need to be reset. One way this can be done,is to take a piece of notebook paper and run it between the clutch bell/gears and then snugging the engine/clutchbell up against the spur gears and bolting it down and removing the paper

if your spur gear looks in good shape use it.
