Thank you Mike. I'm definitely one of those "while you're in there" guys.

I agree with Mike. I've had the same symptoms with throwout bearings that were failing, all types of cars/trucks.
I always replace bearing, pressure plate and friction disc at the same time, and it sounds like you are the same kind of mechanic. It's not an area that you get into very often (hopefully!).
Best of luck, Justice 777. I think you'll find an ugly bearing in there,...please let us know!
Hope your project goes well! Todd.
