starter spins and starts the engine, but there's always a "but" now and again it just spins and don't turn over the engine ? do you think its clutch wants changing ?

It will be the starter clutch springs most likely.

If the motor has been inoperative for a while the rollers may be sticky.

Sticky rollers usually sorts itself out with use, especially with clean oil.

Otherwise its the springs.

The caps and rollers are generally fine but the springs fail.

If replacing them do not use an aftermarket kit. Their springs fail in weeks.

Buy OEM springs. You likely won't need the other parts.
