single mass flywheel conversion help

im in the process of doing pretty much a complete overhaul of my 96. dual mass flywheel springs were shot so i got a new single mass flywheel kit, new pedal box, master cylinder, and new slave cylinder. I got everything put and and fired it up for the first time tonight. Everything seemed great except i noticed a sound of gears chattering when its sitting in neutral, but when i push the clutch in it sounds normal again. Im guessing something with the input shaft since it goes away with clutch pushed in, and yes i filled tranny with fluid. My question is, is it normal for chatter like that when you have a single mass?

my South Bend did the same thing on my old 95, the clutch worked fantastic though so it was worth it.

You will get more noise from a single mass flywheel clutch. Both Valair and Southbend mention this in their product descriptions. It is normal

Remove your shifter and add a extra qt of atf, it should quiet it down a little.

Like others have mentioned, it is normal and call roll over noise.

You can add an extra quart of Fluid to quite it down a lil bit
