Clutch/slave problems

Well first things first just got the truck motor runs awesome but I'm having a few issues nothing major, when I push the clutch pedal to the floor I hear a piping sound down by the tranny, I was reading through the factory book and it says to lubricate the slave cylinder rod so idk if that's the problem, also with the engine running and with the clutch out the I can hear what sounds like the through out bearing slipping on the pressure plate, but if I push the clutch slightly it stops like the slave is out of adjustment, and the third problem is that it seems like the flywheel is warped, I was told that it has been converted to a single mass flywheel and has a 500 hp clutch in it but I'm not certain that's the problem. Please help, thanks.

popping sounds can be anywhere from normal to worn diaphragm springs. throwout bearing noise on the obs trucks is not uncommon and a bad throwout bearing can cause some serious damage. i would check the push rod bushing on the pedal to rod attachment up under the dash. it is a common place for wear that can cause all sorts of noises. as far as the warped flywheel, if its really a 500hp clutch its most likely ceramic and they can chatter like crazy and that is completely normal with a heavy duty pulling type clutch. hope this helps some. good luck

the noise that sounds like the throwout bearing is bad is normal with a solid flywheel conversion. the dual-mass absorbs alot of that noise and harmonics.
as far as the chatter - with a ceramic clutch that is normal too. mine is finally starting to smooth out a little bit (it only took 13k miles for it to seat itself!!!!!!)
the popping noise is not normal though, but that is hard to diagnose without checking it out personaly....... good luck
