1940 Ford Clutch Whine - Transmission Removal
 

I have a 1940 Ford Tudor w/an 8BA flathead. This car has about 2500 miles on it since changing the motor. Before putting this engine in, I bought a new 10" clutch disc, new pressure plate, new throw out bearing, & I had my local machine shop resurface the flywheel.

Now I have put around 2500 miles on it & when I press the clutch pedal in it is making a whine sound. I am wondering if this could possibly be coming from the throw out bearing? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Also, if I have to change the bearing - I am going to change the transmission & rear axle at the same time as I have a freshly rebuilt trans & rear axle w/3.54 gears. How does one get the trans out after pulling the rear axle? With the X member there really isn't any clearance to pull the trans back?

I have posted here before that I had a new BCA throw out bearing last 7 miles in a fresh restoration of a 40. Wish I could have got 2500 before I had to replace it! It is a total crap shoot whether you get a good one or not. (I am up to 221 miles on the current one with my fingers crossed)
Since you are pulling the motor, the trans should be easy.

I have been told that you are better off with a good freshly greased original TO brg than gambling on a new off shore mfg brg.Reused the brg from my 46 merc. and have put maybe 4000 miles so far with no problem.Phil

The transmission comes up through the interior floor after the rear axle has been pulled back.

I did my 40 P/U by pulling up through the interior floor as well. Close fit but it makes it.
