Got my 65 6cyl 3spd out for the first time this weekend only to find that when I fully depress the clutch pedal that I get a heck of a noise..vibration/rattle that goes away after releasing the pedal. this happened after the car warmed up.
I replaced the engine last year and also replaced clutch plate, disc,t/o brng,and pilot brng at that time.
Does this sound like the pilot or t/o brng?

Did you install the throw-out bearing backwards? I would suspect the throw-out bearing before the pilot bushing.

NO
I drove the car all last season with no trouble, I would have suspected a DOOFUS if I had just put the car back together.

Pilot bearing....nope. Could have the clutch plate gotten oily or the pressure plate a little rusty while it was sitting? Could also be the throw out bearing. Keep us posted, I'm curious what you eventually find out.

Adjust your clutch, see what happens. Maybe you are pushing the T.O. bearing so far in
that it's getting weird on the clutch fingers.
