I do believe the taper faces to the crank also... my confuse... but not with the Oil drive gear... it's tapper needs to face the clutch side.. so in your case Astro, the bevel of the gear (the tappered part will face the clutch)

SUCCESS!

Chock it up to my inexperience with the transmission. I had it right the first time and didn't know it.

Rebuilt clutch installed and it works like a champ. No drag at all.

Still a bit clunky going from gear to gear, so now I need to look at the selector side, I guess.

Thanks for everyone's input. It was invaluable.

Cheers!

Your clutch disengages your crank from your trans, not your trans from your rear wheel. To adjust clutch pull in lever as you step on the kickstarter. It should release at about 1/2 way to the handle and grab as you release the clutch lever about 1/2 way out. Difficult clunky shifting can be a high idle, a dragging clutch, both. Keep in mind the archaic vespa trans kinda needs to be turning for the cross to move into the next gear, so static testing is contraindacated. you can shift if you pull in the clutch and spin the trans with the startlever, engine off of course.

My idle was a bit high. I don't know how that happened. A lot of things changed during that 100mile ride.

I'm honing in on it. Rally this weekend. I'm sure I can pick up some good info there.

Thanks, all.

The concave side of the clutch washer goes towards the crank. Why? Because in manufacturing, the crank is left with a stress-relieving shoulder at the point where the balance lobe and the shaft meet. The concavity accomodates the shoulder.

This is true for all of my machines.

I had the bevel facing the clutch when I used to run auto lube, and had the oil drive gear.
