Haha kit cars are becoming fun albeit id prefer more tarmac fun! ....thanks for replying.

Turning over with everything loose theres no noise however i cant find any gears. As i adjust the ratchet (tooth by tooth) till i find Its going into gear it starts to give a light high pitched continuous squeal , when i depress the clutch its a slightly deeper noise. 

Yes the plate actually says "this way faces engine" or something along those lines. Then you just tighten up the cover completely?

That sounds like you fitted it all up correctly, but it sounds like you need a larger diameter clutch quadrant.

The clutch is designed to work with a small amount of friction at rest but not much.

Then you need substantial throw to disengage it enough for smooth silent gear changes.

Search this site...there's load of info on bigger quadrants or Hoody style free fixes.
