wierd clutch noise - need help.

Im having a problem with my 81 cj5 that it cant figure out so I thought i'de see what you guys thought. When I press the clutch it makes a grinding noise. I figured it was the throw out bearing so I droped the tranny and xfer case and installed a new one. while I was in there I instpected the clutch and clutch plate(which are only three months old) through the back of the bell housing. They looked fine. I got everything back together started it up pressed the clutch and it made the same noise. What else could this noise be??? It seemed to have happend after wheeling on a difficult trail.

Re: wierd clutch noise - need help.

Could be you dinged the pilot bearing when you put the tranny in, or the parts guys gave you the wrong size - I didn't try the new pilot bearing on the input shaft of the tranny when I changed the Iron Duke in my CJ, and every time I push in the clutch now it grinds. For me, it's easier to pull the motor to do a clutch than drop the tranny and transfer case (that's probably the only advantage of the four-cylinder[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]!).

I use a slide hammer. The other way I have seen it done is to pack the center of the bushing with grease then pound a rod the same size as the hole into the hole and let the grease push the bearing out.

Good Luck

Re: wierd clutch noise - need help.

Another thought, though the pilot bearing sounds like the culprit. You might have maximized your tolerances. Is it a scratchy noise?
