i just installed my cussioned brass button clutch from hardcore clutches, no its got a knock that goes away once the clutch peddle is slightly touched, you hear it when its driveing i have only done 2.5km on it and i just want to make sure its not something serious, could it just be clutch chatter?

throw out bearing has been replaced, flywheel was machined, all bolts are done up to spec.

is there little rubbers on the 2 little pins on the clutch fork? cos if theres not or if they are a bit worn it will cause a rattle

so its ok to drive on still and drop the box out after i got some money back?

need the car 3 days a week and ille inquire bout the rubbers.

it didnt rattle with the old clutch in it sounds like something is flopping around in there.

if that is the problem then it is fine to drive around on as far as i know, it will just **** you more than anything.

the little rubbers are about $20 for 2 from holden, did you install the clutch yourself? can you remember the little rubbers being there?

I replaced the rubber stops in my clutch fork and they flogged out again within a month.

my fix? put the fork in a vice and press it in til it just grips the thrust bearing

Today i replaced the clutch in my VN. put it all back together, and when i started the car it was making a tapping noise (like tapping a tin can lightly on the pavement). Turns out the dust cover on the front of the 'box was just touching the flywheel

yes did the clutch myself and yes remember those little rubbers, its just strange that it wasnt making any sound to making a sound with the new clutch in. i also have noticed that the pick up for the clutch is a fair way out do i adkust the nut on the other side of the clutch fork in or out to make it pick up lower to the floor?

should be able to adjust pedal height at the clutch fork hook (where the cable hooks on to the fork)
