Re: Drivetrain noise update!!
the bellhousing does more than 'protect' the clutch and flywheel. its the single most important piece that connects the tranny to the engine. if the bellhousing is not square and true, you'll be putting force on the input shaft, wearing out the pilot bushing/bearing, wearing out the input shaft bearing, scoring the input shaft pilot, and ending up where you are now.
it takes less time and money to do it right than to unf*** a f****p.
when doing a clutch, ALWAYS:
1)replace pilot bushing/bearing
3)replace throwout bearing
4)replace clutch and pressure plate as a set
5)have more than one can of brake cleaner on hand. the pressure plate, clutch disk and flywheel surfaces MUST be oil/grease free. run it once with grease or oil on any of those, and you just bought yourself a new set
