Can't really tell from the pic what's hitting but the cable looks to be on the wrong side of the release lever.

Chain is too loose. Look for that wear spot on the throw and push it back. Look at the spots it looks like it's hitting... at the plate, not the bolts are being torn up, right? Primary looks dry.

Took primary cover off night before took the pics, had plenty of revtec primary oil in it, I do think my chain n tentioner block are both shot. But that wouldn't cause the the clutch cable lever to hit the clutch basket studs would it, is it possible that the clutch disc are shot n clutch and between clutch pushing out and maybe cable arm adjusted for that put it in to Farr and by time add the two together they touch now ? I realy don't see what's going on, I'm at point I think I'm gonna hunt down new clutch plates, chain, tentioner block, and cable case arm and just put it all in new .
Still would like to know why it's hitting, I figured surely someone on here knee or had same issue before .

The chain has slack in it because the adjuster on a Sportster is in the cover, like I said I can't see the studs so I can't be sure if they're rubbing but I am sure that your cable is digging a groove in the gusset on the primary cover which makes me think that something isn't correct there(I had a '77 with the same setup but it's been too long since I had a close look at it). On that setup the studs(which are attached to the bottom plate) will move outward with clutch fiber and steel wear so looking inside of the basket isn't a bad idea. Is the noise constant or does it go away with the clutch in when you are in gear and sitting still?

That's not a groove cut , it's just the casting of primary cover

Good pics, that helps...however... nothing stands out like it would be the problem. Check your hub nut and make sure that the hub it tight on the shaft, make sure your basket bearing is good, generally make sure that the basket can't be moved in and out, and check your throwout bearing. Did this start all of a sudden, and when it did what was your clutch adjustment like before and after the noise started?

I think I found the issue, the clutch basket bearing is wearing. I had side to side play but not in n out. I think a combination of the play with the bearing and the were in the release lever. So I'm putting new bearing, clutch disc, primary chain,tensioner block, n release lever. Got half parts ordered n have going rest just gotta come up with the rest of the cash lol
