you can buy parts for that, its probably just worn. It consists of a new seal, the retaining blocks, and the clip. Numbers 5 or 6 may be what you are looking for

It's all easy, but greasy! EXCEPT the clip. That thing can be a mother to put back in. It's a spring clip that goes inside the bell.

Murph PS anybody know a trick for this clip?
