Default 87 Ezgo Marathon Gas - clutch question

Good evening - 87 Ezgo Marathon Gas - belt is squealing and has no drive -
I have removed the drive belt and the rear end spins very easily with one finger and the engine takes right off sounding like an RM250 dirt bike.
I am guessing that the drive clutch (on the motor) is worn out. It does show some wear on the outside half. It is actually worn down pretty good.
I am thinking that it would probably be best to replace the clutch itself, or are there replacement parts available?

The driven clutch appears to be in good shape. Just replace the drive clutch and see what happens?


Thanks in advance

I just replaced both the drive and driven clutch on my 86 marathon 2pg. My drive clutch basically exploded when it went out so I knew that was the problem. two weeks later the driven clutch bit the dust. It wasn't as obvious of a failure but my point is make sure it is not going out on you as well.

Thanks for the input guys. I was able to get a pic with my phone - both sides of the drive clutch have a lot of wear on them. I'm thinking that this is likely the problem. It certainly didn't take very long to chew up the new belt that I had put on in the midst of my trouble shooting efforts.
I'll get a new clutch ordered and update once installed.
