Can someone explain to this old thick headed geiser how this clutch can/does work when there are no moving parts other than the crank shaft and pulley?
I looked up the parts for the 782 clutch here:

Going by the diagram #2 spins on the crank with a key which is #6. When it is energized it pulls the flexible disc part of #3 onto itself making the pulley turn. When the clutch is off the disc part of #3 is riding against the back side of #4 and the drag from that keeps the pulley from turning. When I get back to work today I'll see about getting some pictures of one to better show what I mean by the flexible discPart #2 must be the part that is supposed to move on the crank shaft. The coil must push #2 away from the coil and drivers the plate on the pulley unit ? ? ? Clear as mud.
