6 spd questions

Hey guys

I got 99 250 psd with the 6 spd.

I have a couple questions.

It's a hydraulic clutch right?

Are they adjustable?

I have problem. When I let the clutch out and take off and the engine idles down or there's load on the engine and transmssion at low rpm there is a loud vibration or rattling noise from the inside of the transmision. Any ideas?

Thanks

Sounds like the throwout bearing is going south.

I'm pretty sure they all do that. It's the clutch-plate rattling around between the flywheel and pressure plate because of a harmonic frequency is what a mechanic buddy told me...

Mine does it too, no worries. If you don't want it to do it, just keep the engine above those rpms, but it doesn't bother me and I'm a low rpm driver anyway so mine just does it.

at low rpm my truck has a resonance but I think its because its a Crew Cab long bed so there is alot of driveshaft, then it stops once I get moving a bit, or keep the rpms like stated above

The rattling in my truck may be normal and I'm not used to it.

But if it's not, and the throw out bearing or pressure plate is making the noise is it a big deal?
