i put in an autogear m22 behind my 350 in my 72. i prob put about 300 miles on the tranny and all of a sudden when i push the clutch pedal in, it makes a loud click halfway down. it sounds like its coming from inside the bellhousing. anybody know what this could be?

You'll have to open it up, more then likely. Is it hydraulic or mechanical? It could be the ball for the fork, the fork itself or binding on the nose cone of the input, from premature wear, possibly. Check and be sure it's (fork) not hitting the bellhousing.

Does it do it when it's not running too?

It could be the retainer clip on the fork get hung up on the throwout bearing.

Sounds like the throwout bearing is installed incorrectly. Alot of times (not saying you did it) guys will clip the bearing on the fork incorrectly. One of the symptoms of this is the sound you are describing.

What it a new fork? I had a fork that cracked right at the pivot ball. That caused a clicking noise. Are you losing pedal adjustment? After mine cracked it started to bend backwards on the pivot ball. That caused slack in the adjustment rod; eventually the fork started hitting the firewall and the clutch wouldn't release.
