The original CCT has a weak spring that got weaker with age. It may be smooth......
The clutch soak is meant to a) you'll clean the plates while you're in there, b) coat them with oil so the clutch releases smoothly, less drag when cold. The clutch does not get much oil normally. Do it once, should be good. It's optional, and usually only done if you're having clutch drag and associated shifting issues.
Keep yer stick on the ice....
