Thanks for the info CG. I seem to be having a mental block on this issue. The biggest problem I seem to have is the sudden "grab" when letting the clutch out - accompanied by the grinding noise. Does the oil flow from the inside of the hub, thru the drilled holes to the outside (by centrifugal force), where the friction plates are? I heard somebody say the holes allow the oil to be flung "off" of the disks, thus allowing them to not slip. To me, the holes allow oil to reach the disks, rather than be flung from it. Or does the oil flow from the outside of the hub, thru the drilled holes, to the inside of the hub?

Maybe I need clutch operation 101 class to get this! I'm thinking I dont fully understand how a clutch works.....
