Clutch whine question

My clutch whines when in gear and when out of gear but when you depress pedal it goes away. The guy I bought truck from said it is a heavy duty clutch. Anyone have any info / suggestions? It seems to operate just fine. Thank you

release bearing or input shaft bearing, not much you can do without pulling the trans!

I just bought the truck and will have to replace the trans when I can afford it which is not now maybe in 6-12 months. Do you think if I don't beat on it I will be OK, it runs great the only issue is the servo in 2nd gear will not let me downshift into 2nd unitl I am barely moving. I know no garuntees but I sure do need this to last for a while.

I'm told these ZF's can take a pretty hard beating, I'm sure you'll be fine.

Mine grinds shifting into 3 if I shift too quick, for atleast 2 years and still works fine otherwise!

You will be fine my bro has been driving his that way for 5 plus years. Been driving my 97 for a year with all the synchro snot working. Have to double clutch everyone up and down.

New clutch info / help

I dont know what fluid is in truck just purchased truck and I am in process of repairing, replacing, changiong fluids as I can afford to. What fluids are reccommended for the ZF5 and as far as clutch I am looking at purchasing this one below from Phoenix, see info below anyone have any input? And what type of fluid should I use in my manual trans? Thanks

Clutch I may purchase (Southbend out of price range) Need one with new flywheel i suspect, any help with good economical clutrch would be great???

This is a Phoenix Friction Stage 3 Street Performance Clutch Kit. The kit features a Phoenix Friction high heat Ceramic spring dampened disc. It will provide up to a 60% increase over the stock engine torque capacity. At the same time, you will not notice any increase in pedal effort over the stock clutch and offers chatter-resistant lift-off for a great daily ride. Ceramic button discs will give you the fastest shifts due to their low radial mass which reduces their overall flywheel effect and works with all flywheels, including lightweight steel and aluminum. You can expect 200% the life over original equipment woven organic linings from Ceramic buttons under normal driving conditions. These buttons will absorb the most energy of all the friction materials and is the material of choice for the highest torque applications.

ZF requires SYNTHETIC ATF in this transmission when it's mated to a diesel engine, and I've read that it does affect synchro op. At the very least, check the level. If unsure, drain and replace.
