I have replaced the gasket on the sprag clutch but the sprag doesn't turn when I tighten the case are there any tips on how to put it back together?

Well, if you've put all the parts back exactly as they should be the other possibility is that the new gasket is made from material which is too thin to give the required end-float. I have had this with gearbox end cover gaskets (the green ones) and have heard of it being a problem with timing cover gaskets too. You might need a second gasket, or else get yourself some thicker gasket paper and cut out your own.

Thankyou, in the end I decided to get rid of the insides remove the electric start and blank it off. That should sort it.
