so i finished putting my 4v swap together i start the car and press in the brake pedal i hear like this humming/grinding noise coming from the trans area near the clutch. what could this noise be? could it just be that the clutch needs adjustment? Also the car is still up on jack stands front and rear

Brake noise coming from the trans? Could it just be the hydraboost unit making noise? Is the power steering fluid full and not foamy?

It would need to be on the ground to load the steering, if it does it when turning its prolly gonna be bad. Really the only thing it could be is a thrust bearing allowing the crank to walk back and touch the pressure plate to the throw out bearing, but that almost never happens. What if you hold the clutch and hit the brake?

Well found out that it wasn't anything major at all. Checked my power steering fluid and it was low l, I filled it and turned the steering wheel and fluid went down and filled it and turned wheel and it was normal level. Pressed on brake pedal an sound was no longer there. I reckon the sound was just traveling through the motor to the rear and that's why I thought it was coming from the clutch area.
