New Clutch question?

Well just had the south bend clutch installed and picked it up today. All i can say is its awesome. One small detail and it may be just its new and needs to seat or "breakin". Well when clutch is not pressed and the shifter is in nuetral there is a groan, press the clutch and it goes away.... Like i said may just be where its not broke in yet.

Also the engine noise in the cab is alot louder now. I just wonder if maybe there is a plate or some sound deadening insulation that didnt get put back in. sound like the noise travels through the tranny straight into the cab.

Clutch works as advertised, super easy operation and 0 slippage. Just a things that made me wonder....

The model clutch is the MU 1939 DF. The Spicer style (big rig) design works with the stock flywheel.

Hopefully someone else can tell me this is all normal and its just need time to break in.... I do like this clutch and would recommend it.

Just as an update, I took the truck back to the tranny shop. and they said it was normal for a brand new clutch to have that rock tumbler like sound when everything is not seated yet.... i asked about the input shaft bearing and they said it was well within tollerance. So all should be good.... Just like to hear others opinion.
thats exactly what it sounds like. engine wants to sit next to me lol.... well ill check it later today....
