Default 1992 EZ GO Marathon Drive Clutch

Ok. I have removed the Drive clutch, now how do I tell if the clutch is bad?
I've enclosed pictures. Also, is the spring supposed to have a certain number of turns when reinstalled? How do I tell if the spring is weak or bad?

Looks good. The three levers should be free to move up and down and they look that way. No clocking on this spring. Just put it back. The rear driven clutch is the one that has to be clocked.

Thanks for the response trig 123.
Mine moves freely. There was some dust build up when I took it apart,but I blew that off. I can lift the move able section and it slides right back down,with no hang ups.
Are the 3 fingers just centrifugal weights? I guess the only thing that can go bad is the spring break or it locks up somehow from gunk accumulation.
It looks to me like you could take the fingers out if needed, by removing the socket head cap screws. Is this correct? I thought these weren't repairable.
Is there a service manual available on here for download?

Don't know of any service manual for these. I guess you could take another one and get parts off it if you needed something. Like I said yours looks like new and from what you said nothing is wrong. Yes you can remove the socket head bolts if you want.
Are the 3 fingers just centrifugal weights? Yes

Thanks trig 123.
I guess I'll put it back together and look at the driven clutch on the rear end.
I think after I put it back together I'll put it on jack stands and run it and see what I can figure out. Thanks for your help, it's greatly appreciated.
