Noisy clutch help

Hey guys, I own a '00 PSD Dually with 6 speed manual tranny. After towing with it the clutch will make a sqwaking sound and is diffucult to release smoothly. It makes no noise if I don't tow with it. Has any one else experienced this? I've been told its the fingers on the pressure plate and need to replace the clutch? Are there any other items I should look for?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Keith

My '00 powerstroke dually manual is in the shop right now. It is due to what can only be explained as two "squeak squeak" when leaving from a dead stop in normal street driving. I was told it could and probably is related to the throwout bearing and rod associated with it. The part is only like $85, but....it cost me $350 in labor to get to it(pull and reinstall the trans). I am HOPING that it's just the throw out bearing, and not the clutch/flywheel/PP assembly related as well. I can say that i am prepared if the clutch is bad, as Discount Diesel performance parts gave me a great price on a South Bend clutch setup if/when the clutch needs replacement.

Yeah...DPP is getting me a SouthBend FE as well. My LUK started slipping last week and I've had some trouble getting the $$$ for the SBC. Hopefully I'll have it by Friday so I can install it on Fri/Sat/Sun.

$350 is cheap labor for pulling the tranny. I was quoted $800 locally for the clutch install. That did NOT make me happy!

Hope your's goes better than mine is. LOL

Yea, he is an old Drag racing friend, so i think he is cutting a little off. Anyways, I am almost hoping the clutch/pp is a little worn out, as id rather just "get it over with", ya know?! I mean us 6 speed guys, its just "replace the throw out bearing with a newer model, put in a south bend clutch, and never worry about tranny issues again"....Well.....i hope anyways, haha

Yeah...me too. I hope I NEVER have to repace the clutch again! This is my 2nd clutch in 2 years!!! Of course....I made the mistake of replacing the stock clutch with a crappy LUK to save some green...and now I'm paying for it. I should have dropped the $$$ on the SBC the first time!

Yep,

I learned that lesson drag racing a m6 car. You're better off dumping the extra $$ now, then spending 2x $$$ later, haha
