Are the bolt holes in the plastic still good or have they been drilled out? Did it have the o-rings yet? Just checking.

The top 2 holes on that back cover should be recessed bolts. Go to www.canampartsguy.com and lookup your cover and compare. The bolts are sticking out to far believe they will rub on your clutch. Forget about everything else until you get that back cover squared away properly

Still don’t understand why put that shim
in there
If the previous owner put on an aftermarket clutch, and it was a thicker assembly than original, it would rub the outer clutch cover. If he or she were to shim the housing backplate, it would move the cover out, since the cover is attached to the backplate. That would also explain why the inside of the clutch is now rubbing the backplate or shim, since the lateral location of the clutch doesn't change relative to the crankshaft. The only other reason I could think of to shim the housing out would be to create a place to keep Slim Jims or jerky strips warm. Even if the clutch you have now is not thicker, he or she may have had a thicker one on before. Sometimes owners experiment with clutches.

Ok sounds good your bolts. I can’t imagine what kind of clutch would require doing something like that. Was there a shim on the tranny also?
