With the primary cover off, should the lift rack be able to spin freely without the pinion shaft engaged, or should it be somehow locked in place?

What are you trying to do? I have not heard of a "lift rack" in the primary drive side. Be a bit more specific please. P.

Mr. P - thank you for responding. Forgive the confusion; I sometimes express myself poorly. On the company website, it is referred to as the clutch " lift rack"; in the service manual, as only the clutch "rack". It meshes with the clutch pinion shaft, converting the shaft's rotational movement into a direct outward lateral force, and pulls the pressure plate away from the clutch rings during clutch disengagement. It is pictured below as #2.
Just this morning, I removed the primary cover and found the answer to my question. Although the lift rack is keyed (note the 3 ears on the green section), the center shaft (in orange) rides within a bearing and seems to rotate freely. I'm not sure why, but as long as that's normal, I'm happy. I suppose one just needs to check the position of the lift's center shaft before attempting to reinstall the primary cover and re engage the pinion shaft. Thanks again - Woody.
