Does the clutch work all right? Nothing wrong with a light clutch pedal if it works, you'll be happy the first time you get stuck in a traffic jam. Hydraulic clutches are supposed to be light, so women can drive them. It sounds like surfacing the flywheel might have reduced your clutch travel enough to make a difference, but if it still works fine, count your blessings.

the cluth works fine, just i've always been use to it being heavy and having a nice feel. but now i've noticed that when i accelerate there sounds like theres a whining noise thats sounds like inaligned gears, but doesnt happen when the clutch is in or in nuetral. and when i get on or off the gas it makes a make a tap noise that sounds like metal hitting metal. it only taps once and again it doesnt happen when in nuetral or w the clutch in. ???????? :confused:
