    88 YJ Clutch question

    Hey guys looking to pick up another Jeep today. It has a weird whine that owner states started after a recent clutch replacement. It almost sounds like it's in 4 lo but it's not. That kinda whine. It's pretty much what I've been looking for in a YJ for the wife but I have a broken shoulder at the moment making looking at things before buying a bit tough. It's has 4K and a rebuilt 4.2 / man trans / spartan up front.

    Any ideas what's up with the whine?
    Thanks

    I'll just say I don't know, I don't have any experience with a manual on a YJ, but the only whines I can think of would be the diff gears, or the gears in the manual transmission.

    Ya... its not coming from diffs. Possible it's in trans which is my worry but the guys says the whine appeared after just replacing the clutch which would lead one to think it's something there I'm just not sure what. I've done a lot of clutches in XJs but never one in a YJ. There just isn't much there to screw up. First thought was throw out bearing but I've never heard one sound quite like this.

    Hopefully someone smarter than us will chime in

    Ahhh okay. My first car was a manual, and with a heavy foot and learning all about dumping the clutch I went through a lot of u-joints and clutch disks. I mean like 12! Got better after someone told me to resurface or replace the pressure plate and de-glaze the flywheel... but I digress. One of the other things I learned the hard way was getting a tool to center the clutch disk. I wonder if they just used the eyeball, tighten and stab it method? If the shaft was tweaked it could more the gear and cause a whine? I know I'm reaching but if the bearing was worn enough I think it could happen.
