Question Knocking noise in tranny

I recently replaced the clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing, and pilot bearing in my 96 GT, but now have a rattling noise ( at idle is when I notice it the most) when I am not pushing in on the clutch pedal. If I push in the clutch pedal the noise stops. I think it is the release lever tapping against the bell housing. I do not think this is normal, at least I don't remeber hearing this noise. I also noticed right after the replacement that the clutch will engage as soon as I ease off the pedal, as before the pedal would travel half way up before the clutch would start to engage. It seems like when I attached the cable back to the lever it went on easier then when it came off. Please help me so I can resolve these issues.

It sounds like you are hearing neutral roll over> I recently replaced my tranny to a T-56> and started to hear the same thing> D+D transmissions said that it was normal because you put in an aftermarked clutch that will also tend to make it a little louder. They explained that the stock clutched are tuned to be quiet and the a/m clutched are not always all that quiet.
hope this helps

Sound like chatter to me. My stock clutch does that. and its either the throwout bearing is bad or the disc is bad. You got a bad clutch IMO.

Sounds to me that you might want to look at clutch adjustment. I do not think it is normal for a clutch to release that close to the floor. My clutch also releases/engages at about half pedal travel.
