Re: Need clutch expertise.
You can do as my third wife did, when she told me the alternator had to be replaced on the road for $175 (this was several years ago as I'm now on wife five) I asked her if she hadn't heard it whine. Since I could have done the job for under fifty dollars back then.
Her reply was "Yeah but I just turned the radio up and it went away."
