rebuilt 2.7I 284 cam 2 lttle problums

i just rebuilt my motoer so now it is a 2.7I with a shrick 284 cam she goes good, but i have 2 problums i have an erratic idle where it jumps up and down from600 rpm to 900 rpm and when im driving and am coming to a stop when i push on the cluctch it drops rite down to 500rpm almost a stall,thats one, the other is i replaced the clutch and trowout bearing and had the pressure plate sent out and machined and balenced and now when i let off the clutch there is a huge raddle and when i push the clutch it goes away. it sounds like the bearing is gone but it is brand new, if anybody has any ideas it would be appreceated if you could let me now

From what i read , when you install upgraded camshafts( like shrick) your idle won't be smooth due to the timing. i think a chip might fix it , though not sure on this info.

I have a 2.7i with a 290/290 cam and my idle is stable..
I think you may have a problem of rich/lean mixture at idle or check the idle switch is on at your trottlebody switch assembly way to check is with a ohm meter or move the throttle very slowly and listen for the click.
And make sure it is on at rest position or you wont have any idle.

As for the clutch noise you know if the 2.7 crank you got was from a automatic or manual car... there is a bearing at the end of that crank for the tranny shaft.
I had a similar issue and i had a crank without that bearing so it was noisy.
