    I have a bad noise which I'm hoping is the lifters but wanted to check the primary just to make sure.

    Wondered how much this groove on the clutch spring is reducing the tension?
    When you guys install the steels, do you install with the sharp edge out or the smooth? I understand that it will make the clutch smoother having them all one way. Either engagement or release depending on which way they are installed.
