OK here's my misery;
I finished up the clutch install, started it up, and there was a terrible whinning metal on metal rubbing sound. Took it to RRE, had the petal adjusted, and it went away (or it warmed up enough). Started it up the next day to go to work and it was back. I've been driving around with it for a week and it goes away when the car warms up.
I tore everything down to the tranny this weekend;
It's not the starter, it starts fine.
It's not the lower inspection cover, I've played with it so it doesn't vibrate or rub.
When the lower cover was off I looked at the back of the flywheel, no rubbing marks, no metal shavings.
Looked in out the throw out bearing service hole, and things looked alright. No metal shavings, or obvious scratches on the pressure plate, and the fingers looked fine.
On level ground, fluid drips out of the fill holes; tranny and transfer case.
Pulled the axels and the output shaft. Fluid leaked all over so I know it's getting lube.
Loosened the tranny bolts and retorqued the tranny to the block.
I'm dying a slow death!
There's only two things left I can think of; the upper tranny/block plate is rubbing something some how some way. Or, I damaged the input shaft bearings taking the tranny out and in. The input shaft took a couple of smacks, but nothing I think that should kill bearings.
Anyone have other ideas?
Why does it go away after it warms up?
I even looked at the turbo; no shaft play and the fins look good.
