1) I was about to crawl back under the bike and start putting the plates in one at a time when it occurred to me that there was an easier way to do it. I assembled the centre, plates & pressure plate on the bench, then put 2 of the springs on with their bolts but with a couple of 3/16" fender washers under each bolt in place of the lifter plate and tightened them just more than finger tight. After lining up the friction plate tabs with a straight edge, I was able to put the whole assembly in as one piece with only a little fiddling required to get the splines on the shaft to line up with the ones in the hole in the clutch centre.
While looking in the Haynes book for the torque specs, I noticed that they recommend putting a couple of springs & bolts in with washers to engage the clutch to provide resistance while loosening & torquing the lock nut. Good idea.
