It is a process where holes are drilled into the clutch drum to let oil drain out more readily, I did a search but I could not find it.

Go to the photo gallery in technical photos and on page 3 there is a drawing of the procedure. I marked the clutch hub with a permanent marker and drilled the holes myself with a hand drill. Precision is not a requirement for this simple job. The hardest part is getting the hub nut off and I show how to use a Craftsman strap wrench to hold the hub and remove the nut on page 1.

Here is a picture/diagram from the gallery of the clutch basket and where to drill the holes:
