Most likely a spring on the centrifugal clutch is broken or the clutch shoes have locked up inside the clutch drum due to rust/corrosion. You will have to separate to determine the problem.

You have burned out your clutch throw-out arms. The throw-out arms have a contact surface that looks like a brake pad, only tiny. You have worn through that and it has 'welded' itself to the clutch cup, with the friction. You will need new throw-out arms with the spring and maybe the clutch cup too if it is badly scored. I have it down to a half hour process. If this is your first time triple your time

Take the clutch parts with you. See what they think about the cup. $40 would cover everything
