Well, that is what I was getting to. If it was repeatable when the clutch was depressed/cycled. If Increased pressure on the throw out bearing causes the change in noise level, then the throw out bearing is highly suspect, regardless of it's age. Obviously, I hope this is not your case. But for a free and relatively easy check, remove you belt and start her up. If the noise is still present and still only changes with clutch, then what else could it be? I have experienced bad distributer shaft bushing noise before, but it is not associated with clutch use. If the noise is gone with the belt removed, then awesome, a much easier fix lies in your future.
