Crazy. Flimp the moving half of the clutch over,and you will see the gold colored washer under the spring is probably off center. ust bump it around till it is centered int he hole, and it should go on all the way.
It almost sounds like you don't have the clutch pushed on far enough. Is the shaft that goes through the helix flush against the spacer on the jackshaft and is the spacer pushed up to the jackshaft bearing? If it isn't, you don't have the spline of the clutch lined up with the spline on the jackshaft. I can't imagine why it wouldn't fit.
