Could you link to a better clutch bell and clutch for this such system, i would like to look into itOh it definitely has springs, 3 of em inside. I was assuming OP has a tapered-shaft clutch - but that's the straight-shaft clutch, same thing I have. There are 3 springs in that clutch as well as sliders that should have a very light amouint of grease on em so they don't bind. I have to admit that I completely forgot about the bushing tho, it's been so long since mine was converted to sealed bearing. Those bushings need regular oiling sometimes, depending on how much you idle at a stop. Best oil I've used for that is a tie between 3n1 (cheap at Napa or Ace Hardware) and non-spray Tri-Flow (not cheap, but awesome for chains too).
Edit: the 3 springs inside are easy to replace with higher-rate ones so that the clutch engages later. All of these clutches have some deviation in the springs, whether between complete clutches or individual shoes. A matched set on a clutch works wonders.
