Real quick

I have a chattering noise that bugs me and I have noticed that if my foot is on the clutch or if I'm pushing in the clutch it goes away it almost sounds like a squeaky belt but more radical ... Any ideas what that could be ? Thanks

My guess without hearing it would be a throwout bearing or a serpentine belt that only is making noise when the engine is under a load............

I just had complete clutch/transmission repairs done.
Ford tech said clutch pedal vibration is from worn out clutch pedal where TO bearing rests. Either the clutch fork its'self or TO bearing wear/positioning.
I asked on behalf of my brutha with same issue couple weeks ago.....

Yeah I was driving today and would coast up to a stop and I couldn't here it this time but then when I push in the clutch I can barely here it ?? But when I start the car up it does it until I touch the clutch pedal ?

Yes. The "chirping" is the throw out bearing. It's very common for these cars. Mine does it also.
My TOB is also starting to "whine" when I depress the clutch to shift gears, when it gets warm after being driven for a couple of hours.
The car had a clutch installed just before I purchased it, but I have no idea what parts were used. I'm likely going to remove the drivetrain and freshen it up. I will install a factory Ford TOB when I do so.

It could be the tob. But it also could be the quadrant, firewall.

My tob went out completely in march, replaced clutch, disk, etc. not even 50 miles into driving it it makes this cricket noise when my foot is not on the clutch.

My TOB only chirps when the engine is cold. As soon as everything warms up it stops.
It's the whining that has me concerned, on mine.

Okay so should I be concerned ? It only chirps when I start it up but when I drive and it warms up it doesn't make the chirp noise anymore

I drove mine for about 20k miles before I started noticing it whining.
Your mileage may vary...

If you have a stock clutch cable, you can put your foot under the clutch pedal and lift up to adjust the quadrant claw.
If you have a firewall adjuster, I would adjust it slowly with quarter turns.

When I lift up on the clutch pedal it does have play ? Is this normal or not ? It's not terrible but it's there

i have read that this is normal when the transmission is cold. wish i could remember where i read it, but i vaguely remember it being a tsb or something official from tremec. Mine has done this since i got it. after warm up, noise is gone. (for the most part)

it should lift up toward you, then you push it all the way down. its supposed to click to readjust. i have never heard mine click, but a full press on the clutch fully removes it from the flywheel so im not worried.

Motor starter too. It is right there and usually gets removed to make room. Perfect opportunity to replace it due to the pesky 3rd bolt that is so difficult to take out and reinstall.
I took advantage of it and had one of these put in:
Ford Racing Mustang High Torque Mini Starter With Cable And Fasteners M-11000-C50 (96-14 V8) - Free Shipping
it's a bad *** starter and should last a good long time.
