Well, the first order of business is to try the saw without the clutch.

I removed the bar, chain, clutch, sprocket, bearing and oil pump drive gear.  I then ran the saw.  I warmed it up for a while, revved it a bunch and couldnt hear any noise.  I put the clutch back on, with no bar and chain, and the noise instantly returned.  I repeated the removal, and no more noise.  The noise in the video is definitely coming from the clutch. 

Without the clutch installed, the engine sounds completely normal to me. 

How common is this?  I inspected the clutch, and none of the springs are broken.   The clutch is the 3 coil spring type.

Baileys lists both the coil spring clutch and (spreader?) spring clutch.  Not sure what those are called.  The coil spring clutch is cheaper.  Which should i get? 

Here they are:

The part numbers are the same, so maybe the pictures are not accurate.

Also, do i need to replace the drum while i am doing the clutch?

I will replace the bearing and probably the sprocket.  I also have a crack in the oil drive gear so i will replace that.
