I wonder if I am missing #5 in this parts diagram. It’s 09048-112 “22 thrust washer” Where does that thrust washer go?

This is where it’s rubbing.

       I'm not quite clear on where rubbing is occuring. Is the outer side of the clutch basket hitting the side of its housing. If so, can you feel any wobble on the clutch basket. Are any of the fingers bent outward?
     If there are no marks showing on the clutch/carb outer cover, its sounds like your clutch plate pack, pushrod, etc are OK.

Thanks, Brian. I looked to see where the rubbing is happening. The outside edge of the back of the clutch basket is rubbing on the crankcase cover. The clutch was working nicely before I took it apart this morning, and I double and triple checked the arrangement of the clutch parts and push rod parts when I put the engine together about a month ago. I'll have to check when I reassemble if the pressure plate is running skewed. I assume this is done by pulling the clutch lever and checking the clearance between the pressure plate and clutch disk.

            I believe, the modification to the right crankcase cover and clutch outer cover was more aimed at providing further side clearance between the clutch housing and the side of the basket. BS were convinced the basket fingers were spreading under load and rubbing the case. A steel band round the basket fingers was also added at some time.
         As far as I can tell the later clutch outer cover does not provide increased clearance to the outside of the clutch. Take the outer cover off and see where it is rubbing.
        Scoring on the inside of cover is quite common and is more likely to be due to the clutch hub nut or the 40mm ring nut on the clutch basket (behind plates) having come loose. Check these first. It is also possible your clutch has the wrong combination/ No. of plates, pressure plate running skewed, or push rod arrangement is not correct, or wrongly adjusted.
       The clutch basket cannot be shimmed to move it inward.                                                    Brian

350 Talk / GTR Clutch Basket Rubbing On Engine Side Cover
« Last post by hgzumanity on Today at 12:06:27 AM »
Hello everyone,
I recently got my GTR running and I can hear the clutch basket rubbing on the engine cover underneath it. I did some digging about this in the forum search and found out that an engine cover that gave more clearance to the clutch was made after my GTR was made ( I have #1908). My question is: Can I shim the clutch basket to move it away from the engine side cover so it doesn't rub anymore? Or, do I have to find a newer engine side cover to put on my engine to stop the clutch basket from making contact?

Karl, what is the source for "newer tech" parts you refer to; i would like to put the info in my file.  Thanks, steve swan

I just meant semiconductor diodes commonly used today vs. selenium rectifiers.

Brian, that 3-phase bridge looks ideal.  Bolt it directly to something metal, like an aluminum bracket or sheet, or in good contact with the battery box, to conduct heat away.
