Unless you have a need to aerate,,, for an actual reason,,, you'll have much better results by running a slit-seeder over the ground just the way it is and keeping it watered... soil to seed contact can be made in the bottom of the slit,,, but if not, seed to mulch contact is even better, becuz the mulch doesn't dry out as quickly as dirt does...
De-thatching is an error for cool-season grasses,,, even for seeding...

If your lawn is truly dead,,, then even if you had a thick layer of living thatch,,, that will be truly dead as well...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
