Alright, I got pics of Clutch and break/drive. Clutch looks fine to me, but you experts know more than me.

As always, thanks for your help.

Looks like your problem is the white part in the second picture. The tip end looks broken off and won't catch the clutch just right. take a look here at the new part: http://www.repairclinic.com/SSPartDetail.aspx?s=t-110.20702990-%3d%3di2670&PartID=2670

The end of the brake release has to catch the clutch when it goes into spin to release the tub brake. When you open the lid this feature brakes the tub and stops it from spinning immediately.

Thanks JWWebster,
So that white part is a part of Break assembly ? If I already had ordered the Clutch, will it come with it or do I need to order another part which you suggetsted?

Appreciate your help, O0 .

If you ordered the clutch assembly it looks to me from the photo that it comes with that part.

I got the clutch and it was exactly the same as shown in that picture.

You gotta get the clutch lined up right and nothing can be in a bind.

See if this image helps.
The tab on the clutch needs to go in between the two plastic tabs.

This is a top view of things. The plastic piece part on top will already be mounted to the break and the clutch will be mounted to the top of the gear case.

But when you slide the gear case in place you will have to watch close so you get the two part lined up.

Get a guy out there Kimosabe. You need a pro, a scratch you can fix but a broken arm needs a Doctor.
