If you have a '68 pressure plate, with the round center thrust pad, I have 
seen them make noise if this pad comes in contact with the center hub of the 
clutch disc.  There was a problem years back that some manufactures of disc's 
made this hub a little too big on the outside diameter.  You might look for 
this if and when you pull the engine back out.
Jim's suggestion for the moly spray lub was a "factory authorized" repair 
back in the '60's. Just drill about a 8mm hole in the lower bell housing, and 
get as long a nozzle as you can.
