hmmm, i dont know what hes doing that im not, but its damn near impossible for me to spin JUST the tool, the flywheel wants to come with it.. or my springs are too stiff or something.. i couldnt even bend the 1.1 mms and the tool cut right through the 0.9mms!

ill try again though. thanks for the help.

I don't think you'll get 1.1 springs on like the video shows. I use it to compress the spring and work the clutch shoe and spring down on the shaft pin. I get the spring tabs down by the clutch nut first, then I squeeze down the shoe with a small pliers on the flywheel pin.
