    my 82 C10 has a 305 with a Saginaw 3 speed. Ever since I got it there is a tick in the clutch/trans. If the truck is in neutral there is no tick! As soon as my foot touches the clutch it’s there. And in all gears. Although it is much less noticeable in third but 1st and 2nd are loud as is with the clutch depressed. There is no issues driving and she runs great. Tick gets faster with rpm. Im mechanically inclined but don’t know where to start first. Thanks for any info!

    Throwout bearing is my guess. If it was the front bearing of the trans it would be there all the time.

    But wouldn’t it stop ticking while driving down the road with no pressure on the throw out bearing?

    I guess for 15 dollars I can replace both bearings. Thanks for the help!

    So for anyone curious.....the bearings are all fine. The previous owner put one bolt in the dust cover and it was making the tick. Took it off and no tick anywhere!!! Just gotta get some more bolts and replace it properly!
