Brilliant mod, I've been sick of hearing people say "hey mister, which end does the cement come out of?"

I had installed a Barnett clutch pack previously and then a Barnett basket but it never really stayed quiet.

Now, the jangling clatter is still there when disengaged (which I like) but the nasty knocking is long gone. Shifts fine etc ; I don't forsee any problems but it's easy enough to rectify in any event. Top marks on this one.
