As I talk more with my dad about this and think about it more, I don't know if it's physically possible to actually tell the spin difference just by grabbing on to the clutch and turning it by hand. I feel that centrifugal forces are necessary in order to see/hear it engage at higher speeds. Chances are, I just need to add a shroud but the main reason I've been wanting to see if it engages properly is so that I don't have to go through all the trouble of removing my shroud to replace a defective clutch. I guess I'll hang onto this for now, fabricate a shroud, and see where it goes from there. Anyway xntrik, I guess this thread is a good way to show people how to diagnose and test their clutches for problems. Thanks for the help all who contributed. Next step is shaving off a bit of the ends of the clutch fins to help it go in easier without scraping up my radiator. Had a hard time slipping the clutch out.
