In putting my input shaft together I find that I do not have clearance to fit the retaining clip in. This should be easy there are only the input shaft, oil deflector washer, bearing, spacer washer and the retaining clip. I am about 1/2 the thickness of the clip short of getting it in. I have pounded on it harder than I want to. New bearing from Moss. Has anyone run across this? Should I try to make the spacer washer thinner? Or remove the oil deflector washer? The bearing seems to be the same thickness as the old but I not sure if the chamfer where it fits around the raised portion on the shaft (the raised portion that centers the oil defector) is as big. Is this something someone has run across and can advise?
