Putting the engine back together and at the point of installing the shifter assembly. I remember when I took it apart someone mentioned not to take it completely apart but I did!!
Any hints/suggestions getting it back on?

You have to put the detent spring/roller on the end of the shift drum first, before you move the articulated end of the shift shaft in place.
I think maybe there's only one on a 4-speed, while a 5-speed has two.

I'm confused (as usual) about the shift drum parts. In the first pic are all the parts (have to find the bolt) The plate has a dimple in it to sit on the shift drum face, see pic 2. But it doesn't look right or mesh up with the lifter arm

Looks right, just in high gear,(should be installed in neutral) but you need to install the detent first.....(spring arm and wheel).....

Like we both said, you have to install the detent roller/spring.
It will bolt where the arrow indicates....



The fiche shows how it assembles. The little wheel (#8) will ride on the rim of the plate-thingie (#9).

Be sure to Lok-Tite that screw in the end of the shift drum (holds #9 in place).

Got it on. When I stripped the engine I bagged everything in separate bags for each functions on the bike. For some reason I have 2 dowels to fit into part #8. I used the thin one and it fits ok. The other one is sitting on the end of the crankshaft. If I used the longer dowel in Part #8 it extends too far from the block.
