Default Clutch spring question

I am putting my clutch together and i came across a problem. The
springs seem to be to big. The clutch/flywheel/spring setup i have is all off a jammin x2 buggy (3 shoe aluminum) so i know that it all should meet up. The motor is a mach 2 .21 from dynamite. The bottom of the springs are rubbing against the big flywheel nut and it is pushing the top of the spring off the top of the shoe. I cant fit the bell over the whole thing because the springs stick out so far. Any idea what i am doing wrong?

I know you said everything is all Jammin but it sounds like you have the wrong flywheel nut. A pic would help a bit more.

i think i figured it out. I am a complete nitro nube so i didn't know that you need to cock back the springs for it to fit. I just need a clutch tool for that to work right? Any other tools people make or use that will cock the springs back?

A screwdriver does work, but a clutch tool is pretty cheap and makes things HEAPS easier. I use the losi clutch tool. It works great for installation as well as removal.
