Ok. . . .. The clutch arrived today from Mobile, AL. (JWWebster) and so I dug back in. I took the machine apart and discovered the 'Ring, retainer' above the clutch was loose in the clutch housing. I am certain I reinstalled it correctly but reckon it lost some of it's tension. Nevertheless, I tightened it's tension and reinstalled it but thought I would replace the clutch with the one from JWWebster anyway. It was quite dirty / greasy and I cleaned it the best I could. I got the machine back together and guess what. . . . . . SMOOTH as can be but the tub would only spin after I started the spinning it with my hand. I took the machine apart again and though there was no longer any visible grease on the clutch. . . I cleaned it again. I put the machine back together and SAME STORY. I took it back apart and put my old clutch back in. . . . I made sure the retainer was still tight (it was) and put it back together. I started her back up and she is running like a champ!
The moral: When you reinstall your clutch. . . . make sure the retainer has tension. . . AND once grease gets on your clutch pads. . . . well I am not sure how you get it off where there is enough friction to make it work properly.
I hope this helps someone! Thanks to all and JWWebster I sent a little green your way today.
