Help with Sachs 505 clutch / starter cable

Hello, I bought an Eagle III with a Sachs 505 on it, and was running at the time that I picked it up. A day or so later, the starter cable broke from the lever, and was frayed so I had to replace the cable.

Once I got into the case I dissassembled and reassembled the clutch per this video just to get an idea of what i'll be working with on this ped.

I've ordered a starter cable from treat, but in the meantime installed a bike brake cable in it's place (well documented on MA). The cable seems to be installed okay and is engaging the clutch arm against the bell when pulled. When I try to start the bike however, it doesn't turn over at all and the chain / pedals locks up.

Any advice on what I should look at next? I think i need to use a piston stop in order to get the nut on the clutch assembly a little tighter, and need to adjust the clearance between the starter arm nut and the bell a hair, I don't think the nut fully releases off the bell when the cable is disengaged, but that shouldn't cause the chain to lock up right?

This is my first time working on a moped so any advice would be much appreciated. It's also been sitting for a little bit maybe 3 weeks or so, so not sure if I need to do anything with the carb etc, but my gut says there's something not right with the clutch. Please help!

I did fill it with type F trans fluid. Do I need to make sure to lube up each piece on the clutch with trans fluid? Upon reassembly?
