my clutch whines at a certain point when i push the peddle in. is this all an adjustment issue or is the throw out bearing taking a poop. it only does it at a certain point. i can make it better by adjusting the clutch cable, but i can't get it perfect. it still does it.

Just ignore it if you got places to be. Fix it when you get back I've had brand new POS Throw out bearings make noise on start up. It usually stops after it's warm.

the bad part about it is its been doing this for a while. it does this and starts again. and since i'd be driving it out to butcher jones i really don't want to be stranded out there.

i'll be working on it tomorrow. i'm still driving it today because i have lots of things to do today.

i doubt it will work unless one of you 2 changed stuff around with your clutch. he needs an early style and i think you have a late model

things should work out okay. the stupid thing though hasn't made noise at all since i've been driving it this afternoon. i've driven about 20 miles and it runs perfectly fine. i still need to pull it apart and figure out whats going on though.

I ended up taking the motor out this morning starting at 8. By 10 I had the motor all the way out, throw out bearing off, and headed to my shop in tempe to get a new one. came back, put the new throw out bearing in and lubed everything up real good and put the motor back in. got everything buttoned back up and fired her up at about 1:30. No more whining clutch and everything seems okay
