I tried to engage the clutch to see if my push-rod rigging worked, and it didn't. The pushrod was too short, so I had to lengthen it a bit. Fortunately, the top end was still threaded, so I was able to adjust the height of the nut just enough to make it fit properly. It works now. And it still revvs just fine. I think there's a slight miss, though... and my timing light confirmed it. It's possibly a bad spark plug wire, so I'll have to try swapping it out w/ one of my spares. I hate doing that... I really can't afford to buy a new set at this time. Oh yeah - did I mention the previous owner didn't completely bolt down the front anti-sway bar? bleah. I fixed that, and I'm glad I noticed it... I'd hate to lose that while driving it...
