Atco Commodore B20 clutch rattle

Hi finally got it running.

Now that it is running I adjusted the clutches as per the manual. However when it is idling you can hear the main clutch is rattling. Is this normal?

When the clutch is engaged the rattle ceases

Probably nothing to worry about as when the pressure is off the plates they an flop about a bit. Just make sure that when it is disengaged the pressure plate on the withdrawal sleeve stays within the basket.
