Seems like it may be a worn one way bearing if you have replaced the clutch, bell and liner. Or, possibly the entire fan hub is slipping on the motor crank? I have seen it happen before

OR the entire one-way is slipping in the housing.

one way

Wasn't thinking one way, I'm going to check on that, maybe mainshaft could be a little worn in that area as well, maybe, I did check hub on motor, that's definitely tight

Cant remember for sure, but I think it is possible to install the clutch wrong side up. Check that out.

Clutch, solved

Problem solved yesterday, problem wasn't with machine, servo's weren't strong enough to give full pitch, replace with new servo's and problem solved, would have never thought that, thanks for all replies

This seems very odd! What servos were you using? It doesn't take much torque to change collective pitch.

Have you tested the old servos since? If you can easily stop the servo arm with your fingers then they would be a problem.
