I have bought myself a new helix, i installed it and my roller cover doesnt sit correctly on it, the helixe only touches one roller and the two others are loose.
My question is can i leave it like this and it will take its shape after running my sled?

Loosen up your helix bolts, keep them loose when you put the cover on and they should be lined up. Tighten cover bolts before helix.

usually unless you get a custom(aftermarket)roller cover, no helix will touch all 3 ramps at full backshift, and then usually you have to have the stationary's ''resting pad'' for the helix just lightly grazed(trued up)with a lathe, the stocker roller covers aren't as precise as the high dollar ones, just my experiences,,,,,,

Yep,, never seen a stock cover yet that all 3 rollers touched the top, wouldn't worry to much about it, doesn't seem to hurt performance.

I have good luck doing it like this. I usally tighten the cover down with the spring out, then tighten the helix, take the cover back off to put the spring in. Seems like a lot of work but all three rollers will be touching.

NOTE: You have to hold the helix tight to the rollers when you tighten the helix.

Not to be a smartazz, but all you that only have on roller touching, give it a try, might learn something. Unless I got two factory covers that were right on.

Do it every time I have the clutch apart, it's the proper way to put the clutch together, makes no diff on mine.

I probably put 4 cat secondaries together and the rollers contacted the helix.
