Need help installing new chain

I just took off my old chain and I'm now trying to install the new one, but I'm having a problem with re-seating the front sprocket cover. It seems that the rod for the clutch is not going back into the gearbox.

What's wrong? I can't find a manual that discusses this, so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

You probably aren't going to want to hear it but ..... the service manual specifically warns not to remove the clutch control rod from the engine when removing the cover. Seems a bushing on the inside can fall off into the transmission. I hope this isn't the case.

Oh boy. I certainly didn't want to hear that, but I was able to put the casing back on. Seemed that there was a small outer sleeve around the rod that wasn't sliding into the hole correctly. As soon as I lined it up, the cover went all the way in. I hope I didn't mess anything up inside the gear box!

Did you remove the rod????? If so I know of some others who have and nothing happened - whatever is on the backside/ inside doesn't seem to always displace.

The manual does also say to make sure not to lose those 2 bushings (one around the clutch rod one also on the lower side to the rear).

"Remove the cover being careful to not extract the clutch
control rod (it must remain inserted in the engine)
and be careful to not lose the two centralising bushes
indicated in the figure ."
