I've had a few people asking about the noises that the clutch makes. If the idle is set correctly then there will be zero noise at idle.
After initial break in the clutch shoes will be seated to the drum and much, if not all, of the ringing noises heard will disappear almost entirely.

I made these videos to demonstrate what is to be expected from your clutch when everything is set up right and past initial break in. I really have to listen closely to be able to hear the clutch working, and my exhaust is quieter than the stock Subaru or old GC190's. The more you use it the more quiet it will get.  ;D

I was testing the auto bilge pump setup, and had just poured two gallons of water in there when I realized I wasn't hearing any clutch noise and decided to get some video so everyone could see how quiet it is once it's been broken in well.

Two minutes of WOT pumped the water out.  ;)

I read in a previous  post that the suction hole needed to be drilled correctly so it would suck. What did you mean by that?
