Did 6 flights today with the N5C with no issue but when I packed the heli up, I cannot spin the main blades in counter clockwise direction. Something is stuck. So I take off everything, and notice that one side of the clutch slightly springs out and thus it grabs the bell. Is that clutch done? Can I just bend it back with a visor?

Owb installed
The 200-405 has the one way bearing installed.

OK Thanks.

Also, I notice that my clutch bell has a slight sideway play. I mean I can slightly wiggle the bell. I check the three bearings in the block and they all look good with no notchiness. Is such the sideplay normal?

I usually don't start getting play until a very large amount of flights. I would replace the bearings while it's apart. Seeing how your bearings have a little play in them and your clutch is grabbing the side of the bell, I would ensure that all of your alignment is good. From the sounds of your issues I would believe your stack is out of alignment with the engine or your fan and clutch are out of alignment.

Im with Mark, no play is usual. Also, not only check the bearing's but the plastic block they are in to make sure that is not where you are getting movement. Never had an issue myself with the N5's but I remember on the old N9's this would happen

Dump the clutch and the bell...
Get all new! Seriously! What you may not be able to see is that the bell could be machined off center, or the bearing bores are oversize. This happens more than you think. The weaker side of the clutch shoes probably nestled into the offset thus creating your issue. My bet would be to the bearing bores. There should not be any side to side. Even with major flight times side to side should be minimal. How well does the OWB grab for starting? Does it slip any? Since the clutch rides the start shaft the OWB should be checked as well.
My 2 cents.

Hmmm not sure if I will replace everything. I have got 155 flights prior to this happening. I add a shim in between the two bearings and the play is gone. There is no slipping of anything.
