Was going to Kelley Park last month, when a relatively new clutch failed. Pulled the motor today, and there is significant oil in the bell housing, and clutch media on the flywheel, but the clutch seems to be dry...as does the inner flywheel. Help?

if it's Engine oil, then There are two plugs in the block back there.... I believe one per half. Just above half way down, at about the 10 o' clock area(if looking at the flywheel end of the block. (I think that makes sense......?)
Pressed in plugs, like "freeze plugs" On a normal water cooled engine.

If it's transaxle fluid, then your input seal is dead....

Replace the plugs, turn the flywheel, and toss a new clutch in!
