I changed the sprocket, put everything back in place without ever touching that key.
Frogon,
Did you notice and replace the large o-ring that helps to seal gearbox oil leaking out at the g/b sprocket?

Pretty tough to do if you follow Plewsy's method.

Much easier done on the bench where gravity works for, rather than against you!

Keep on Froggin'

Yes, thanks. I had a new one ready to go.

Man, that makes sense. It was way too late and I was pretty much brain dead !

Why do previous owners do stupid things ?

The cush-drive is always pulled up against the clutch hub shoulder by the nut and washer.There are no choices there.

The thrust washer behind the basket may have disintegrated or just been left out .It has no effect on the mainshaft washer or key.The thrust washer will effect sprocket alignment,which you should first check ,adjust with shims at the crank sprocket,and verify,by fitting the sprockets with no chain.The sprockets should be aligned within 0.010".

Other than that,the thrust washer controls rattle on the clutch basket,when the clutch is disengaged.
