This is a problem area and when you apply 70ft lb (as recomended)to the clutch center, the stress under load has and will shear the oem clip. Many are reducing to 40 ft lb's at the clutch center nut to remedy this issue.
The 06-8072 clip is more robust and simply does a better job. It is tougher to get on, but that is the nature of the beast. And yes, run it down the shaft.
Better to be the one who understands than the one who needs to be understood.
I believe this philosophy to be a choice rather than a happenstance.
