    Sprag Clutch preload spring replacement

    First part of sprag clutch assembly to fail is usually the preload spring... once that spring lose it's tension the bearing starts to permanently slide on the outer cage and thing starts going bad.

    BUT if cured in time, you can save the whole assembly just replacing that little spring. Same kind of springs are used in oil seal, the correct one is pictured below size 56x72x7 mm, you can buy it cheap:
