uh, thats a lot of very descriptive input... not really. ok, there are a few things. check these to see what the problem is:

- try to turn the spur gear (the big, black gear) by using your finger.it should spin freely. if it is stuck, then there may be some major problems. if the spur is stuck, there are many things that could be wrong, which i will not go nto detail about yet.

- if the spur spins freely, try to start it. you will ez start it, and see that the spur moves little, until the engine rev's to life. then it will spin. it is a sign that the clutch is fine. if you get the engine running fine, try to run it around somewhere, and pay attention to see if anything wierd is going on.

Now, i made that advise based on the very little info. you gave us. go into detail about the problem. oh well, you are new here, no worries.

Good luck!

its hardwithout looking at the vehicle but the only thing i can think of is incorrect gear mesh OR you have been running too long with a new clutch/heavy clutchshoes and light springs and the clutch was rubbing on the clutchbell and causing friction>causing heat and then wen u brang the truck inside and let it cool off the plastic "welded" itself to the clutchbell......its happened to be before with my savage and the spur welded itself to the clutchbell and a few teetth broke off....u gotta scrape the plastic off the clutchbell if this happens DO NOT USE A POWERTOOL OF ANY SORT
