CLUTCH CHATTER

Jeep Other

1975 Jeep CJ-5, 110,000, 258cid, 3sp manual

whenever backing in rev the cluch will chatter as I engage the clutch. No problem after fully engaged and moving. It has now started doing this as I go fwd in low gear. Clutch disc, pressure plate, throw-out bearing, pilot bearing, transmission/motor mounts have all been replaced at least once. Flywheel resurfaced twice. Disc slides freely on the input shaft. I have replaced everything I can think of that could cause this with no success. No other issues with the transmission and has never been abused. The only other thing I can think of is: the bell housing is aluminum and over the years the aluminum has flexed/yielded/changed shape so that the alignment between the engine and tranny are no longer square, straight and true. Anyone have any ideas? Thanx. Al
