    tranny removal?. clutch chatter..

    heyah,

    i'm considering removing my tranny again. which is somewhat of a task on the floor in the garage.

    the reason being: i'm getting a lot of clutch chatter again. and there's already a little "make shift" work to say the least

    but i'm thinking the what, 12 mm bolts around the pressure plate need to be tightened.. at least that's what i'm hoping.

    and i plan on changing out my throw out bearing again. anything else?

    should i even be concerned about the clutch chatter?

    thanks

    the only time i notice the clutch chattering is at idle. other times i can't really hear it. it seems bad at idle.. it really doesn't bug me, i'm just worried about something braking.

    ediT: any way i can tell if it's going all the time?

    Noises at idle are usually the throwout bearing. Other noises can be the disk springs coming loose. If your pressure plate bolts were loose you would have other problems.

    so you're also saying not to worry about it. my clutch is unsprung. hohmm. i thought it was clutch chatter. sounds like funny rod knock until you push down on the clutch.

    more advice.

    alright. maybe some redline? but what thickness?

    i believe the tranny has royal purple and lucas right now.

    and are you saying to do that along with removing the tranny and trying to tighten those pressure plate bolts?

    and your signature is fun, i always have to watch it a couple times.

    If you have lucas with redline then I wouldnt bother changing it. Syncromesh is something that people run a lot, it is thin and can cause a death rattle sometimes.

    The life span of that crap is about the same as engine oil.

    i'm running lucas and royal purple in the trans axle,

    with lucas and probably castrol in the transfer case..

    i quit with synchromesh after i started dealing with my transfercase..

    and to coryb, i didn't think that that the fluid would affect the clutch chatter..

    is clutch chatter not the bolts on the pressure plate being too loose?
