Use 4 fingers, two on each hand.

Install disc and pressure plate, LIGHTLY install pressure plate bolts JUST tight enough to allow you to slide the disc around and yet not allow it to fall. Center the disc to the pressure plate using your fingers, then finish tightening the bolts. It works, and it's fast!

Optional tool: 6 or 8 fingers, or 3 or 4 on each hand.

I read on another post that you can use the transmission input shaft as an alignment tool, at least on a 3000. Seems like your 5000 would be the same.

I do it the way Bern does, except I'll also use a screw driver to finish up, getting the splines exactly in line. Alignment tools are over rated.

I hope you're not talking about removing the input shaft from the tranny of the tractor that is receiving the new clutch, because if you are, the amount of hassle and expense to R & R the shaft is not worth the time. UNLESS you're doing other tranny work at the same time.

"Alignment tools are over rated"

I would agree with the statement for most single disc clutches. Alignment tools are pretty much required for any double disc clutch, especially on semis where the splines have to line up with each other.

Ditto on that... I never use an alignment tool on single clutches. Just eyeball them for center. Tried that on an easy pedal once. I wasn't long borrowing the alignment tool. It just doesn't work any other way on a twin disc type of setup.
I have use the transmission input shaft at times on tractor clutches if I have the shaft out. I do quite often change the front seals if I'm into one that hasn't been touched in a long time.
