The spirals go anti clockwise as you look at the clutch. Would that be with the plates installed in the engine? confused22

If you can find it Honda had a tool that did the clutch and neck bearing area.

I ended up taking a socket that was about the same OD as the center nut and welding square keyway stock prongs onto it. Total investment: a junk socket and some scrap. It works pretty well!
