From an earlier post I seen where the clutch pivot ball is where the "bird chirpping" is coming from. Mine was doing the same thing until this weekend when I bought a small packet of spark plug Anti-seize compound from Auto Zone. Part of the plastic cover on my slave cylinder was broken so I put some anti-seize on the end of a long flat blade screw driver and put in the pivot section of the clutch fork. The last two days have been quieter...now all I have to do is to get the rear disc brakes to quiet down.
Since it has been only two days I am not sure if this is the best/correct fix but it has worked the last two days for me.

Lots of us have had noise from the bell housing area. Did you put some grease on the clutch fork ball pivot that whyty88tc mentioned?

All 3 TCs I've had have made this noise. Even after a new clutch and throw out bearing I still had the noise. It's known around here as "the throwout bearing sings" I guess it's a pretty common occurance if it has it's own saying.

You SPRAYED grease into your bellhousing???That can't be good if your trying to keep you clutch FROM slipping....Just my $.02.
