Nobody uses Alto's. I would find a different shop.
Use Borg Warner high energy clutches.
I don't think the clearances were to tight. My guess is probably to loose causing long shifts which gives the 3-4 clutch pack more time to slip during shifts.
That combined with a 3-4 circuit leak and using Alto clutches.
In my 3-4 clutch pack I use a 8 friction setup and run my clearance at .030"
