Not sure over tightening the center nut that secures the clutch assembly to the transmission shaft could cause what you are describing.

If anything, it would lock the basket and hub together, rendering the clutch inoperative (would never disengage). But you would have to massively over tighten, deforming internal parts, to do that.

If the pressure plate is rotating freely when you try to tighten the spring screws then the clutch is slipping friction occurring within the plate stack that transfers power from the basket (driven by the crankshaft) to the hub (driving the transmission shaft).

You have something not assembled you left out a plate??? Take it all apart and start over.

I used to be I just dream about it.
