So, Finally got the 1927 Chevy Capital A to start consistently. However the brake light would also stay on once I pushed on the pedal. So it seemed to be an easy fix. I took the bar (brake rod from the pedal to the rear axel), off, cleaned it up and put it back - now the clutch is making noise when I press on it. When I took the Brake rod out, which is attached to the clutch pedal under the floor boards that is when the noise started w/the clutch. I am not sure if it is fine to drive like that or not.

I have adjusted the clutch pedal adjusting bolt and there is a noise (lite grinding) when the pedal is pressed. The clutch works - as I can shift it into all gears - but the noise is only there when I press the pedal, the noise stops when i let my foot off the pedal. It never made the noise before, just started when I disconnected the brake line to fix that.

Any easy suggestions? Thanks - in this link are some pictures of the truck (along w/the dog). Thanks again for the help.

If there is noise only when the clutch pedal is depressed it is almost always caused by a worn or almost worn out release bearing. The next stage is when it stops releasing the clutch altogether.
