Popping sound from transmission during clutch pedal release. 280Z 5-speed

Recommended Posts

I'm experiencing a metallic clunk sound upon releasing the clutch pedal with the transmission in neutral. There is no groaning or squeaking, so I think my throwout bearing is ok. Clutch hydraulics are brand new, and the pedal is adjusted per the FSM. I can actually feel the clunk in the shift lever, and it occurs just prior to full clutch pedal release. I replaced the hydraulics because the pedal was soft, and master cylinder seal was failing. I thought maybe the hydraulics were causing a clutch drag, but now I'm not sure that was the problem. Reverse has been grinding upon engagement. Anyone have any ideas?
