Clutch vibration

Hhey guys, lately I've been noticing a vibrating sound that I think is coming from inside my clutch cover. It barely happens when i'm accellerating, but when I let off the gas and coast it's quite loud and noticeable. What I think it could be is the bearing carrier (metal guard thing that has the 4 bolts in it, mounts around the primary sheave). I think my bearing in the wet clutch cover could be going bad (getting loose) and when I let off the throttle and the belt starts to loosen up, the primary sheave shaft could be vibrating from the loose bearing and make the metal guard vibrate as well, since the tip of the shaft sits in a bearing in the guard. What do you guys think?

Here's a link for the parts diagram:

If the bearing that the primary sheave shaft goes through (#19) in the wet clutch cover (#14) goes bad would it cause the shaft to vibrate when the belt tension lessens from deceleration? Since the shaft tip sits in the bearing (#29) in the bearing housing (#25), would this shaft vibration cause this bearing housing to vibrate real loud?

The One-way bearing seems to be a weak link. I would look at it first. If the noises or vibrations only show up on decel, then it's probably the issue.

But if your going in that deep might as well replace the clutch housing bearing also. It's cheap insurance.

Thanks Hillbrigger. I did just replace the one way bearing this past winter though because I lost my engine braking. At this time I noticed a tiny bit of play in the clutch housing bearing so I'm wondering if it got worse.

I took off the guard/bearing housing that mounts around the primary sheave and took the belt tension off of the pulley, and I was able to move the shaft with the sheave on it up and down. Not much but I think it could be causing the problem. I'll probably replace that bearing soon and hopefully it gets rid of the vibrations.
