Sounds like the throw out bearing. Doesn't sound like you changed it, or the pilot bearing.

Did you happen to bend any of the forks on the pressure plate?

Hmm.... Only thing I can think of, is the clutch isn't fully engaging/disengaging.

If you have to, replace the throw out bearing again and pilot. I still think it's bad pilot or TO bearing.

Not likely.... If you feel there is, the clutch will still be soft and won't feel like it's trying to push back on your foot when you have it pushed it.

You have to pump it really fast for about 10 pumps, then hold, then open the slave bleeder, once the stream stops shut the bleeder then release the pedal from the floor and repeat the process til no air bubbles are in the system. It should be completely clear. Best tool to bleed our tranny's is a 1/4in drive 8mm deep socket on a 4-6in extension.

your suppose to apply a light coat of it on the throw out bearing. its synthetic grease i believe. mine hums when its real cold out, til i engage the clutch. im not sure if with harm anything not having it on there, but that might be your problem.
