    On another tread i was talking about clutch chatter and got told what could help dampen it , so i decided to experiment myself and found a pretty great match.

    What i did was get my old mouse pads and pizza box "cardboard" and cut them to the shape of the clutch cover. 2x mouse pads, 1x cardboard cutout..

    I placed one mouse pad cutout inside the clutch penal followed by a cut out piece of cardboard. Which i flattened out so the nut on the clutch doesn't rip into the cardboard.

    With the other piece of mouse pad i placed on the outside of the clutch cover and stuck it down with silastic glue. (which when dry will also help with dampen the sound)

    I can hardly hear the chatter anymore. I will be greasing the gears lightly which will also help but its unbelievable what and piece of cardboard and mouse pads could do..

    This is my end product:

    Thanks for reading, Hopefully helps someone else on here!
