Trying to pre order parts but not sure how many steels/friction plates needed. Working on a '74 that neighbor was going to throw away because he lost the key.

Some have different counts, you usually have to pull the side cover and count. Unless a clutch slips or is burnt there is no need to replace the steels and if it works there's no need to replace the friction disks either. Most common thing to do is replace the springs because they have lost tension over the years.

IF you haven't found it already they are multiple places to get keys for these bikes, ebay, Honda Keys.com Your source for NOS Honda Keys , http://www.thumbonlinecycle.com/vintage-honda-keys , Honda Keys For Sale - Scrambler Cycle

Just have to have the code on the lock and search for it up on one of those sites.

That's not the function of the clutch, sounds like your clutch cable or the clutch actuator is gummed up. The clutch has quite a bit of closing pressure so much so you can't push the rod in with your hand. Takes a prybar and a good leverage point.
