While replacing the engine in my “new to me” 2000, I replaced the clutch, throwing bearing, input shaft bearing, oil seal, and pilot bearing. They all went in smoothly, but I’ve got a whine that’s very noticeable in first gear that increases with rpm, then mostly disappears after shifting into 2nd. Also, have some “grumbling” if you will, while the clutch is released and sitting in neutral. Once the clutch is pressed, it’s silent.

-I’ve tried 2 different input shaft bearings, neither changed the sound.

-fluid is full, with original Honda MTF

-car drives fine, no issues with clutch or throw out bearing.

-i don’t remember the whine before doing this work, and I didn’t really drive the car long enough to really remember any grumbling or chatter with the clutch pressed.

Any ideas?

Yes...to be clear, I replaced the one that is closest to the the clutch throw out bearing. It was VERY worn out and had a ton of play, none of the other bearings in the trans case seemed worn or overly loose.
