atco standard clutch

I have had the clutch on my Atco Standard very nearly to component parts, and cleaned them.

The bearings seem fine when not under load, but the whole assembly goes stiff when reassembled. I don't  think the bearings are at fault, but I do not have a better conclusion!

It feels lke I need to remove 4 of the springs, to reduce the pressure. Is there something that I may be missing? Failing that, are new bearings comercially available?

Kind regards, Andy
