Last try! E50 cluctch Grab w/ pics!

ok, so I've posted a few times with kind of dead threads.

After reading a shit ton and opening my case about a million times, I am convinced that my clutch is not grabbing here is why. . .

The cable is fine, and the engagement arm is at 90 degrees. I can pull it tight as shit, and too tight it seems.

If I take the spark plug out, and then pull the clutch and push the maxi then I can watch the flywheel spin 100 percent of the time.

As soon as I add the plug back (giving compression), I can't get the clutch to grab to save my life. At best it spins intermittently.

The only time I can get it to spin is if I push the moped real slow, if I try to run fast, hop on, and pull the clutch it won't grab and I'll just slow to a stop.

top racing crank.

3 shoe.

lightened bell and plate from treats

here are some pics (sorry for camera phone quality):

90 degree arm (pre engage)



the kit is polini, little bit of port work, polini 4p dual layer reeds with 19mm phbg.

I should have good compression, but not so insane that the clutch won't grab right?

Is an angle off somewhere?

I'm convinced it is something small or dumb...

Did you adjust the screws on the clutch to adjust them to open/close??? My two shoe has two screws, one for each. The three shoe may have 3, I don't know for sure, but I'm thinking the shoes aren't far enough "out" and thus cannot grab the clutch bell.
