Would a broken cush drive spring (or two) cause the kick start to slip?

Not really, because the primary should be firmly attached to the input shaft by six rivets. The springs simply dampen/cushion the stresses going through the gearbox

Ok cheers. My cush drive sounds like a maraca. Kick start gear looks fine. Top of the christmas tree is a bit mashed. Doesn't look too bad but it must be the problem.

Yeah, the top of the Christmas tree which engages with the kickstart gear will be most important.

If it's rounded off, the kickstart gear will just rotate on the spindle.

You can test it by hand… if it doesn't catch solid, you'll have problems kicking it.
