I backed it out to about 1.5" away, the input shaft is now out of the clutch splines. It appears that the problem is that the two halves are twisted. With the holes at the top lined up on one side the back half is a bit high and on the other the back half is a bit low. I wedged the engine to keep it from rotating when I did the split, but it must have tilted a wee bit. I also seem to have a bit of a horizontal alignment problem as well.
