Clutch Noise

It's not bad but loud enough to hear when you let out the clutch in neutral. Kinda sounds like the plates are shakin around in there, but once I pull in the clutch it stops

When I buttoned up the clutch last night I made sure all the springs were torqued down correctly and everything seemed to be installed correctly. The clutch works fine, but it did seem a little grabby when I first started off after being in there...

Any ideas?

Thanks! I guess I could just be a little sensitive to noises right now since I've just built up this stg1 motor...

Do you know if the lifter rod that runs from the clutch slave through the case to the clutch lifter piece is directional? My theory is if one end is larger then the other then it could be bouncing around in there causing chatter if installed backward even though it would still do it's job correctly...whattcha think?

Well it could be 2 things then. Yes the rod is directional. The "machined" end go towards the slave cylinder. When they are new the end that goes toward the clutch is black at the tip but that sometimes wears off.

The other thing is that the clutch plates might have dried out a bit from sitting. Did you soak them before you put the clutch back together? If not they should quite down in a few miles.

oops, didn't soak them...in fact didn't even bother slathering them with oil this time since I figured they hadn't been out but a week. That would also explain the grabby feel I got when I first tried to start off.

Thanks! That's gotta be it
