Re: Noise on my 70 with new muncie
Might I suggest,
1. Look at where your throw out bearing is when your foot is not on the clutch pedal. If its misadjusted and riding on the clutch fingers, it will be spinning all the
time. Causing the noise when it warms up. There needs to be about 1/2" pedal play between the throw out bearing and the clutch fingers when your foot is off the pedal.
2. You mentioned earlier about checking the oil level. Do you ever to that? Because you never said you did. Since this is a new transmission, was it shipped dry? Although things do go south, even when new, I'm fearing the noises are from a lack of lubrication.
3. Someone made mention about the pilot bushing/bearing, Did one get installed when you installed the transmission? This would go in the back of the crank. This could be the reason for the front tranny bearing going out. I had a hard time trying to figure out if you did a tranny conversion, I'm guessing you did. Automatics don't require a pilot bearing, standard transmissions do. Might be the suspect for the vibration at high speed.
Just ideas to think about.
