heres a trick i have, considering you can put it in line straight with the clutchbell and that your problem is just the meshing part, what I used to do when i was new at this was take a piece of plastic wrap ( saran wrap for food and stuff), put a piece between your spur and clutchbell, tighten your motor in place and once this is done pull off the plastic wrapping, this should give you the good meshing, and then from there learn how much slack it needs for future times.
hope this helps, it worked well for me in the beginning......... some 14 years ago..... gettind old i guess.
the reason a divorce is so costly is because its really worth it.

You have said that you know how to set a mesh, which is fine, but what about something else.. is there any missaligment at all of the chasis, is the motor plate broken or cracked, are there any loose screws around the motor or motor plate, or plate barces. It is not normal to be that afraid to strip a spur. I would honestly be looking for other things like I mentioned above, maybe you actually have a bent input shaft on the tranny.. that would defiantly do it.. check the alignment of the motor again.. i know it sounds silly.. but ya never know..

Is the slipper too tight.. with that beast of a motor, I would tighten until tight, then roll back a quater turn or slightly more. Maybe the next time you are at a big bash, get someone to lok it over, becasue by the sounds of it.. something isn't right, you should never be going thru spurs like that... Matbe take it to Johns, and see if one of the guys there can give it a look over.???
