First off, your dual mass flywheel bearings are problably going bad. Between my buddies and I, we've replace four so far with standard flywheels / clutch kits. You can find the kits on ebay for under $500.00. Go for the Valeo kits, stay away from the Luk, we've already had to replace the Luk after 10k miles because of excessive chatter under a load. I would also bet money that your pedal bushings under the dash are gone as well as the push rod for clutch master cylinder being elongated causing your shifting problems.

Are you saying the sound is inside the truck. Your clutch rod bushing could be worn out. This could also explain why it would grind a slight amount going into some of the gears. Mine scratches second gear. I have new pedal box bushing to install and also bought the new hiem joint replacement system off ebay to fix the bushing. On the oil leak look in the valley of the engine. Common cause for the leaks up there are either the HPOP oil lines or the turbo / pedastal. welcome to the org.

I personally would stay away from the lucas in these trannys unless you use the lucas for automatic's. If the oil in the tranny is too thick it will be almost impossible to shift. I have seen shifters broken due to an idiot putting in 80/90 gear oil.

4. check where your dipstick goes into the oil pan. There is an o-ring in there that goes. Clean everything really well and go from there
