I just installed a clutch (all new parts) in my 79 CJ7 w/304. My old tranny was popping out gear and the bell housing had a stripped bolt hole, so I used the bell housing off my old 258 and a 78 tranny from a parts jeep. (same jeep the 304 came from) Everything bolted up and it seems to be working but when I push in the clutch in, it makes a squalling noise that gets worse the further down it goes. Like I said, it works, it just makes this bad noise. What did I do wrong? Thanks for any advice!

Squalling noise is a very good descriptive word for throwout bearing noise. Since you used a new bearing, I would think that possibly you don't have it lined up right on the fork, so it is complaining when you are putting pressure on it against the fingers. Hopefully this will help.
