Everyone pretty much summed it up above.

1) Use early style throwout bearing and early cover (put in new bushings and seal).
2) Use OEM gears if you can find 'em, Baker if you can afford them, or TWO sets of V-Twin gears (you'll need 'em, trust me).
3) Use the late model large-offset kicker, the swing out one for oil tank/exhaust clearance.

But your big problem is going to be clearance between the kicker cover and exhaust. At a minimum, even if you can shoehorn it in there, you're gonna have to pull the exhaust every time you pull the end cover (and if you use V-twin gears, you WILL be pulling the cover).
