Hello,    Valve clearances are set cold.   As far as the rear PTO being loud, my 9020 seems to be loud.  I have been using it quite hevily this spring, and summer, without any problems. However with that being said, I plan on changing all the bearings in the pto driveline.  I did shred one of these clutches in the past, so now I try to maintain on the side of caution.
