    Did you get your clutch replaced?

    it's your bearing... just adjust the bolt that controls how far out your clutch throws

    it's super easy. Look under the dash. There's a bolt that acts as the stop for the clutch pedal. Back it out a couple turns.

    no. It's the bearing... and it's not an issue. It's the most common on 06+ setups because of how the clutch engages, but basically the clutch pedal goes too far out, relaxes the pressure in the hydraulic system enough that the slave cyl allows the fork to push the throwout bearing to rub on the fly wheel. It's a common problem, and the easiest way to fix it is to adjust the throw of the clutch pedal until the noise goes away. But make sure there is enough through to allow full disengagement of the clutch. You don't want to prematurely wear down the clutch because it's always partially engaged from your clutch pedal being too far down.

    Yeah I was looking at it earlier and I have to push it probably half an inch or so before it stops. It's just strange that it didn't make the sound until after I had the new short block installed...

    What was the weight when you shipped it? Did you ship it freight? When I got my block from Subaru the box said 250lbs...now I know its not 250lbs but its decently heavy especially when its in the crate.

    If I go to cretin fest, which I most likely will, I can pick it up perhaps?
