I understand. The driven pulley and clutch in the rear is the only thing I have not replaced anything in. And therefore i have little knowledge about them. The previous owner said that is was some kind of bushing that was causing the clacking noise, but I dont know if that adds up? What bushing could he have been talking about if so?

I will look in to the clutches tonight. Do you have a good way of checking if the clutch springs are good or bad?
