Strange sound after replacing Slave Cylinder

I had to change the internal slave cylinder on my '89 because it was leaking. Turns out my u joint was frozen too so that was changed.

Now when driving it I hear a sound down in the trans. It sounds very similar to when the Cat converter starts to go. Is this a problem or will the sound subside?

I had/have issues with the slave cyl. I put in mine as well, it took me three to find one that works and about 50 miles in to it, it started making a howling noise unless I gently ride the clutch while driving. It's pissed me off enough that I bought a 4.0 and ax15 with external slave to do the swap over, just waiting for the pos to give up the ghost. Personally I see no good reason to put the slave in the bellhousing, other than to bring in more work to the dealerships when they fail..... It's amazing how little it takes to get me all fired up these days.

If it wasn't done the hard way, I didn't do it.

Yup, that can make a bit of a racket as well. I take it the Bendix wasn't releasing from the ring gear? Glad you got things sorted out with-out having to pull the trans again.
