The jackshaft shouldn't come flush to the end of the clutch. There should be a large spacer and small washer spacers on the bolt to get it tight and allow for adjustment. There should be spacers behind the clutch as well. Removing and adding spacers on the bolt and behind the clutch is how the alignment with the primary is set. Using a straight edge across the back of the primary, the space from the straight edge to the back of the secondary should be 5/8".
There should be a bit of freeplay on the clutch, the bearing is not designed to be side-loaded and the float prevents that. The freeplay also assists somewhat in belt alignment.
You can find whole clutches with the bolt for 25 bucks at the swap meets or on ebay. It may be cheaper than buying the cam adjuster. Without that spacer, there's a BIG ol' gap, ehh? I can imagine you would be scratching your head over that one!
