    help

    I have replaced my clutch and gearbox, thought all was well till I started it up and can hear a horrible noise from the gearbox, with clutch pressed in and out doesn't make a different sounds like grinding like a bearing gone anyways I forgot to check the gearbox oil and its low would that cause this noise any ideas before I waste my money putting gearbox oil in

    Sounds like main shaft bearing but can't be certain without hearing it

    Wouldn't a main shaft bearing go quiet if the clutch has been pressed?

    You sure you put the clutch friction plate in the right way round?

    I put the clutch plate in right way as when I removed it I checked which way round it went before putting the new one on, a friend told me to check the oil so I checked it and it had almost none in so think ill be putting some oil in tomorrow hopefully that will solve it

    Main shaft bearings are generally only noisy when under load, is this just at idle or driving etc?

    It'd have to have no gear oil to be that bad. Was the starter motor on dowels to locate? I've seen starter motors not fitted properly and the teeth always on contact with the starter motor. Fly wheel torqued up correctly?

    Did you use a tool to align the clutch plate properly?

    This'll only help getting the gearbox on though... If the gearbox goes on it's aligned well enough!

    I didn't touch the fly wheel but the clutch that was on before looks like a racing clutch would that have anything to do with it ?

    I have just listened to it there and when at idle sounds like a chatter like a train and then when I accelerate sounds like a whine that's the best way to describe it

    I had a ton of chatter at idle and replaced my dmf and clutch noise gone. The flywheel gets really loose and makes that chattering noise.
