Usually, it is a worn/bent/contaminated disc that will cause clutch chatter. That and heat glaze/hot spots on the flywheel and/or pressure plate face.

That is my worry with my hot-rod '37 too.

Yeah, that Lakewood bellhousing came with the trans when I bought it. The flywheel was a refurbish from a small outfit online.

Do you think it helps the wear and tear to go with a "dual friction" clutch kit on a RatBird like mine? I eventually want to make a 445 stroker out of my 390 and will need some kind of an upgrade to handle the torque. Hopefully end up with HP in the low 400's.
