! The sound is hard to describe but it makes a real racket if you get on it. When idling with the clutch in or in neutral there is no sound. I do not know the age of the clutch. When I rebuilt the engine 3 yrs ago I reused the clutch and throw out bearing because they looked pretty decent. There is evidence the tranny has had work done to it. I did regrease the throw out bearing. There was incorrect trans fluid from the previous owner that I changed. The clutch starts to engage about 2 inches or so off the floor. I jacked the car up all the wheels spin freely the wheel bearinge seem fine. Any ideas ? Thanks in advance.
