Default Easiest way to torque clutch on together g1?

Situation: I got my cart back together and running after replacing just about every part. But I don't think I torqued the primary clutch down enough. Dumb dumb me not doing it right when I had the engine apart.

So what's the best way to torque the primary by yourself when the cart is all together? Feeding a rope into the head/exhaust? There is basically no room on the drive shaft to grip with a wrench.

I use a piston stop tool (top dead center tool)
some rope in the spark plug hole may work

Impact works for me. Might have to take the rear shocks off and jack up the rear bumper, that will drop the swingarm down below the frame so you can get your impact in there. Never had a problem using the impact. Just don't over do it.

Or just fit the drive belt and pull together between the clutches with a large cable tie to lock the clutches together. Works for me in most cases.
