When shifting from 1-2 Slow or fast I often hear a clunk like its hitting something between 1-2. Whats the other bearing that needs to be replaced when the clucth is, (I cant think of the name)...The one for the selctor fork? I think...
I had my clucth replaced at a shop when I first got the car and Im thinking they didnt replace this...

input shaft bearings generally make noise when the clutch is release
and the noise goes away when you press on the clutch

this is not something a shop will do for you when you change your clutch as you have to seperate the bell housing from the tranny as well as remove the trees

this entire post is 100 percent correct.... in every aspect... although this not be your problem.... everyone gets the noise from a t out bearing and the input bearing mixed up..... the throw out only spins when the clutch is pushed in on a running engine

the input bearing spins the whole time the engine is running except for when the clutch is pushed in.... if you can locate the noise to the tranny and are sure it is coming from there... . then its going to have to come out... I would drain the fluid and look for metal shavings... or ball bearings and all that fun stuff.... other than that you are going to prob have to pull the tranny apart and look for the culprit

you are 100% correct as well sir

you might see some metal shavings but i doubt you will be able to see the bearings itself
i have blown 2 trannies and #3 is on its way
the first tranny i broke a shift fork and when i drained the tranny (before pulling it out) it litterally looked like metalic paint

the last tranny had a bad inputshaft bearing but i was to lazy to swap it out
kept running/racing it ..... until one night
bearing completely blew up, it was metal on metal noise and it wasnt pretty, luckily i was able to drive her home
when i drained the tranny i didnt see any bearings but when i rolled the tranny around (after i pulled it from the car) you can definately hear them rolling around

3rd tranny has a bad input shaft bearing as well, not having good luck with trannies from wreckers at all

now i just have to learn how to rebuild trannies and im set

side note: depending on what clutch you got some clutch kits come with a new pilot bearing, thats the one for the flywheel

that clunk you hear might be a slight grind
if you havent changed your tranny fluid recently i would suggest you do that first

if you pull your tranny out to replace the input shaft bearing, and you feel brave enough, or you have the shop manual to consult, take the bell housing apart and replace ALL the shaft bearings in it.

the main shaft and counter shaft both sit on a pair of bearings... so four bearings in all... all you need is a steady hand when removing the shafts so the gears dont slide off... and a bearing puller to remove them from the housing. I think the whole set of tranny bearings from honda is pretty inexpensive. dont forget new oil seals as well.

Dont be intimidated by the job. I managed to combine the good bits from two trannies into one, and im only a pseudo-mechanic. I had my service manual, and a good set of craftsman tools... took my tranny out by hand, and left the block sitting on a jack stand :D

imagine, you can shift with no worries cuz your tranny is now BULLET-PROOF.

Well damn..no Bingo...
But great info...

The noise, and feeling of the shifter is like, between 1-2 I can feel/hear(hence the clunking noise) it hiting something...
Nothing happens when the clutch is pushed in, in fact the clucth is perfect.
I can hold the clutch in and slide the shifter between 1st-2nd and get the clunk everytime. Clutch pedal just sweaks a bit but thats it...

So its not a constant clunk clunk...just 1st-2nd clunk 2nd-1st clunk...
Im changing all the fluids tommrow provided it doesnt rain again...

So...is it clunking only when you move the shift lever between 1st and 2nd? or is it clunking when you engage the clutch again after shifting between 1st and 2nd?
