What are my objectives when I disassemble the clutch to freshen up? I understand the basic centrifugal function (I think) but other than that I feel like I'd be going in blind. I'm having no problems, very easy starts and idles fine, so I'm tempted to just replace the springs, check out the shoe surfaces and where they are grabbing and then hands off, but figured I might as well ask and learn.
