Does the noise reduce when you just touch the clutch pedal or only when you fully disengage the clutch? Also is the clutch correctly adjusted , with the appropriate freeplay?
I'm trying to help differentiate between a noise from the clutch release bearing or from the gearbox.

Regards

hi its possibly a broken antivibration spring . press the pedal just enough to take up any free play if the noise stops could be antivibe spring . does the tractor shudder when the clutch starts biting
