I have replaced gearbox with new clutch and trowout bearing but lately have chatter and noise which I am sure is from throwout bearing. When I "clutch-it" it goes away. I want to know if there is any adjustment at the pedal or any other advice would help. Please don't tell me to get rid and by chevy, need for work at this point! thanx

The first thing I would do is to replace the master cylinder as the compensating port may be blocked causing this problem. It is an indication of a worn clutch but having this problem at my expense I learnt to do the cheap fix first as clutch kits are worth about 5 times the price of a m/cyl.. Normally hydraulic clutches are not adjustable
i had the same problame in my 1989 ranger xlt 4x4 i speed shifted a trans that wasent ment to and my trans got stuck in second and wouldent come out had to take it somewhere to get the forks in the trans replaced turns out i bent the forks and it wouldent come out of second
Any noises when you engage the clutch or shift? Could be several things. If it is hydraulic clutch, check the master cylinder level. It will be on the firewall just outside where pedals fasten to floor. Use dot 3 brake fluid to fill it if necessary. If it is full may have trouble with pressure plate and trowout bearing binding up.
The symptoms of a bad throwout bearing is a horrible noise that ONLY occurs when you are pressing on the clutch. And/or you have no clutch action at all - the car is either in gear or it's in neutral. Sounds just like your situation alright.
Usually bad throwout bearings damage pressure plate fingers to the point that they need replacing too. And while they are in there, they will want to replace the clutch disk too. And then lathe the flywheel flat again so that they don't have a repeat customer complaining about the lousy clutch $job$ he just got. Flat flywheels supposedly won't chatter on take off or clutch engagement, but it could be hose job where you get soaked as well.
I went this route once on a gremlin - $500. The only reason I paid up was that I had a real good job at the time, and then I've never been back either.
You check the universal joints? I have had em make weird noises. The best way is to remove the driveshaft and inspect by hand they should rock back and forth without binding up at all. The bolts that hold that driveshaft in are usually locked in with locktite thread fastner. You will need a 12 mm box wrench and alot of muscle to get em loose or if you got some heat you can heat the bolts up some just dont get the heat on the pinion seal. You also might check the fluid in the transmission most of them take plain old dextron atf I would use a synthetic if your gone to drain and refill. Most clutch noise I have heard is either weak springs on the disk, or a faulty throwout bearing.
