Transmission wobble noise
I have this strange transmission wobble noise.
When I start the truck and push the clutch in the noise is very quiet and almost impossibly to hear. When I let off the clutch the noise gets loud. When the engine is cold it sounds more like a ticking noise, but it also feels and sounds like a bearing wobble. So I think it is clutch related or possibly the input shaft bearing to the transmission? Could the flywheel he warped?
Since it makes the noise when the clutch is not engaged, the clutch is against the flywheel. When clutch is engaged itís not hitting the flywheel, so the noise is basically gone. I don't think its anything terrible. Its been doing this for a month now. And I drove it to The Winter Romp, and back and also wheeled it last weekend. I also have to drive it to VT next weekend so I think its fine to drive on for now.
I am dropping the tranny this Saturday to check it out. Would be good to know what to look for if you have any advice.
One other bit is that when I was wheeling it at the Romp I noticed 1/2/3 gears made the noise. When I put it in 4th gear the noise went away. Now 4th gear is on its own shaft right?
