Well Hig, I took my boat into the shop to have the drive dampner replaced. (The drive dampner looks like a clutch pressure plate). I had found pieces of metal and a broken spring that came from the plate in the bilge on top of the strut mount. None of this really affected the transmission performance at all. Figured out the the noise that I was hearing in this instance was those broken pieces funnelling bell housing before they came out. Now, that having been said, the transmission itself is rather noisy especially at low / idle speeds, but sounds smoother when the boat is on plane.
