Is it a getrag?
I found a pic on the net of a getrag and I could not see an external adjustment.
Sometimes there is an adjustable threaded rod between the slave cylinder and the fork, but unlikely in this case, looks like a similar setup to my old HK holden on those you adjust the clutch fork pivot ball (in the bell housing) to move the fork and bearing in or out. See if you can borrow a maintenance manual.

I cant say i remember exactly but i dont think there to udjust it but at the time i wasnt really looking so i could be wrong. Anyway il check it out sometime hopefully by wednesday and let you know.
On the manual ive seen the holden workshop manuals for the commodores on ebay for 60 bucks and they mention that regularly you cant actually buy the manual.
Is this right>?

There is no adjustment for the hydraulic clutch. It's self adjusting, so any time you bleed it, it just returns to the same position. We had an issue with the new HD clutch where the slave seemed to be keeping the fork and throwout against the pressure plate so we put exhaust gaskets as spacers to pull it back a bit.

Apart from that, there's not much you can do.

The only adjustment provided for is the clutch pedal free play, which should be only 1 mm. That means there should only be 1 mm of free play in the clutch pedal at the adjustment point.

If the pedal adjustment is too tight, with no free play, it's possible that hydraulic pressure is constantly being exerted on the throwout bearing, pushing it forward to bear agains the pressure plate.

Pedal adjustment is under the dash panel where there is a threaded adjuster provided between the clutch pedal and the master cylinder.

from memory if the clutch pedal does not have the correct free play like Calaber said there should only be 1 MM or Free play and if its not adjusted correctly can constantly apply pressure to your throwout bearing.

Can you describe the noise... is it a rapping noise, a ticking noise? a whining noise or a crunching noise

its only when i get into the high rev range which is rarely.
As so i havent heard it since posting this but it was scraping sort of noise.
Say when u put a bit of metal against a buffing machine or something.
At a certain point the sond comes in very faint, round 4000 and gets louser the higher the revs weant.
What do u think baout my considerations of it being a, or more pulley?
At idle they do make a very faint worn noise but not so much that most people would notice as im constantly parnaois about my car
