You wouldn't believe how much this thing chattered……

No impact absorber springs in the clutch hub?

Did you conclude that "zealous over-greasing" was the cause of this chatter?

Hey there! It is! Or, it was! How's the truck driving out of storage?

Colin, see above. :joker: It was a combination of grease on the plate, the non-spring disc, and a slack-ish bowden tube.

Amazingly, it started right up with the first turn of the key. However, the front brakes pull violently to the left so I have an appointment soon with my friendly local German auto service shop.

Let us know if it was the left side that has the horrid wheel cylinder leak and what the brand of the wheel cylinder is.
