New Clutch, Intermittent Rattling Noise and Difficulty Shifting

Hey everyone,

I just put in a South Bend clutch last weekend and I am having some intermittent issues. Every once and a while I am getting a gear rattling/chattering noise from the tranny when the truck is in nuetral, clutch in or out. The only way to get it to go away is to push in the clutch and put it in gear or at least put some pressure on a syncro. It happens at probably one out of every ten intersections I come to. The rest of the time it is nice and quiet.

Also, the truck has an occational issue going into gear. I will come around a turn, push in the clutch, try to go back into a gear and it is very difficult to get into. It is driving my nuts because the rest of the time is shifts like butter. (Way better than before the clutch change.)

Any thoughts? Thanks!

Yes, I got the updated arm and definately replaced the throw out bearing. I essentially replaced everything in the bell housing.

Anyone? The rattling noise sounds a lot like the rollover noise its always had when crawling along in low or first. Should I be concerned with this? Thanks!

Pilot bearing and or clutch alignment issue could be causing your chattering issue, and could also affect difficulty going in and out of gears, i have also seen a loose or uneven pressure plate cause that also. Did you replace or resurface your pressure plate?

I did an entire south bend clutch kit: Flywheel, Disk, Pressure plate, Throw out bearing, Pilot bushing, Clutch fork, and Clutch fork pivot bushing. I did not change the trans fluid since I had already serviced it last year.
