Grab hold of the shaft, and see if the shaft is wiggling.

FYI I do have same number of friction plates as before and the steel plates against the engine bump is facing out and the farthest bump is facing in.

do you mean the "Dished" plates??
    are they dished in to the center-   I)I(I

Yup the bumps are facing each-other. But I think mrunderhill answered my question. I was asking about the clutch center hub. I think he give me the answer I was looking for. Now how to figure out how to see if it's warped. I suppose you could test the same way you do for disk brakes on a car with a spin caliper. Any other ideas? I'm all Eyes.
Thanx

First, make sure that the clutch hub isn't wiggling on the splined shaft, or that the splined shaft itself isn't wiggling.
These are two common issues, which is why I mentioned grabbing the shaft and seeing if it wiggles.
If the shaft wiggles, you need to replace the bearing in the transmission.

You could rig a stationary pointer from some point to measure deflection on the inner hub with the basket removed or with an empty basket installed. You should be able to get in close enough to see if it is out of tolerance or not. It would not seem likely to me that the center hub is the problem. I would think the steel plates would be the first thing to fail because of their thickness. Like Ace mentioned, they come from the factory warped sometimes. Check the friction plates also.
