you hit it right on the head , it is very similar to the ha/da clunk

the new clutch has a little drag and it will give you a clunk untill you get it worn in.

OK Sean. Sounds feasible. The clutch was "totalled" in the end and slipped for some time. Is it possible that the more direct engagement now might be highlighting any movement in any bushes somewhere? Diff bush? for example?
