Southbend Clutch Making Noise

I will try to describe this the best I can. Clutch shifts 1st thru 3rd no noise but 4th makes a loud rattling noise sounds like maybe springs. This is a 350 hp - 750 ft lbs clutch. Talked to southbend, they said clutch may make a little noise at first but should quiet down. Has anybody had any experience like this?

How long have you had it? It takes a while to seat in. If you have had it for a while give it some juice and get a little bit of heat into the clutch to smooth it out. Not a lot just a little.

As of today I have about 125 mile. 1st makes a groaning noise right as clutch starts to grab. There is a problem with 4th it rattles and makes all kinds of noise,no other gears make that sound.
