Hello could somebody tell me why I am not having the clutch engaging please. I am putting my dads engine back together and even getting grips on the clutch arm pulling it forward. Pushing the kick start I can still hear piston moving proving that somthing isn't right the clutch is not enabling. Any bodie got any suggestions please

Its very hard to grip the clutch arm by hand to engage. If the clutch spins and the piston moves while moving kickstart that's good for now. Should be ok if space/gear is correct and the clutch rebuilt correct, too. Make sure the inside of clutch cover is rebuilt correct, too.
When installed back in bike try it again with the clutch cable connected to see if the clutch engages.

Good luck!

If you really want to test the clutch out of the bike, put a pair of vice grips on the clutch arm and that'll give you enough leverage to check it.

I'd also confirm that the clutch arm isn't frozen. With the cover off, you should be able to move the arm by hand pretty easily because that return spring isn't all that stiff, despite how it looks.
