Curtis B. :

All indication is the clutch disc has failed, either the center has spun out or the plate has deteriorated. With gears not grinding, the shaft is not turning, and for shaft not to be turning, the disc is not being turned!

Curtis B. :

Drive disc can fail and pressure plate would still feel ok. You can try to look into housing, but with no real inspection plate, you can see little. Looks like unit will have to be split. Sorry.
