Clutch outer housing gears

hi guys. I'm in the garage working on putting this engine back together. I have come to a problem with my clutch outer housing and I'm looking for some help so I don't mess anything up. the clutch outer housing has two sprockets that are (I think) misaligned. I believe that they should be exactly in line with each other, but the manual doesn't give any details on that. I have been trying to align the two sprockets together so that they will slip on to the primary driven gear to its right and onto the oil pump drive sprocket. I have two outer housings, and both look the same, in terms of a slight misalignment.
Any clue on how to get them to line up?

It's the spring in the scissor gears(in the primary gear) that keeps the tension on the gears to prevent the misalignment is normal when apart. This was mentioned in a thread awhile back. Seems a screwdriver between the gears is used to align things.
