I'm nearly positive that would have no impact on the clutch transmission engaging at high RPM. If it were so, if you dropped the clutch and downshifter to 5-6k at like 10-15mph to 1st gear, it would do the same bc the engine is moving a lot!

They are 2" clamps right? I have a ton in all sizes. I'll check and swap clamps then.

I'll buy some new couplers.

Parts shipped to Top Speed to be finished.
Ordering new slim FAL fan soon and Mocal thermostatic sandwich plate! That's it for parts required for now!

Will be installing a new starter as well and new engine grounds and power cables, 1,444 strands with gold connectors. Should be nice when it's done!
