You said earlier that after the trans rebuild there have been problems? What problems?

You know...this almost sounds like a throwout bearing that wasn't properly greased, or someone decided to re-use the old one to save a few bucks. Or you need some grease on the fork somewhere. There are a couple of spots that take grease on the fork when you install a new bearing. Also, that spring can move around a bit during installation of the bearing, if you are not careful.

This is starting to sound like a part-time clutch issue. Maybe bearing warms up, starts working better. I think if it was input shaft or pressure plate, it would do it all the time. Have to ask yourself 'what is being moved or turning when I shift when it's real cold'. Sounds like throwout problem somewhere...maybe.

I've never tried this one, but I *think* you can take off your slave cylinder and then pop off the rubber cover at the fork. Use a real good flashlight to take a look in there, see what you can see, before you start thinking about pulling back the tranny. Need one of those 'tactical' flashlights with the Cree bulb to really see in there.

Mine would growl the first time or two you put the clutch in. Sometimes it would come and go while the clutch was in. At 176k miles when I replaced the motor I found the throwout bearing appeared to have seized a few times and started working again. It hadn't made any noise in years.

figured out what the sound is!

The dust cover that sits over where the tailshaft meets the gearbox had come loose and was spinning against the casing making that horrible sound until it got warm enough to expand.

I really hope this helps someone one day! Is it possible to rename threads?

Transmission mystery sound - solved tail shaft dust cover

I think that might help, I dunno. Just thinking for future, it's such a strange sound that I think people could be confusing for things like release bearing and input shaft.
