    i don't know, but when i had my hf motor, my tranny made a weird wine when i downshift and while it reved up, it sounded like a cop siren when id down shift, but i ran it for like 6 months before i got a swap and never had a problem...

    Is it while you're in gear or while you're out of gear?


    I have bad synchros and I think probably a bad throw out bearing, or another bearing that makes my tranny 'whine'. like whistling

    Yeh its def. the throw out bearing. Hell if you have a bad clutch then i would go grab that also. It comes with throw bearings as well. Well some kits do.

    well then its either a fluid issue. like maybe the wrong weight or a bad bearing in the tranny. my buddies tranny was whining like you stated and you pressed the clutch pedal down and it would stop. that normally indicates a throw out bearing problem. well his tranny broke the next day. the whole tranny was fucked. so i would really be careful with it. also just because you placed a new throw out bearing dosent mean its not bad. there are defects sometimes. try a tranny specialist and see what he comes up with. good luck bro

    The release bearing is only turning when you press the peddle in far enough for it to engage the pressure plate fingers. (If it's adjusted properly ,with the required freeplay) So bad release bearings only make noise when you push the clutch peddle down, and are quiet whith the peddle all the way up.
    I believe your problem is the front bearing on the transmission input shaft. That shaft is turning anytime the clutch is engaged whether or not the trans is in gear and stops when the clutch is disengaged. Sorry, but I have experienced that same whine and thats the trouble and it means a rebuild or a swap.
