Can you make a video that also includes the sound ??? Then post it to You Tube and post the link here so that others can hear it too.

Hint ... after you make the vid, listen to it and make sure you can hear your noise before posting in on You Tube. If you cannot hear your noise we won't either.

Have a 2004 1800
Had a rumbling noise from clutch and was told by 4 Honda mechanics that at 153K it was to be expected.
I pulled the engine out myself and then asked a Honda shop to dismantle the clutch as a special library of tools is required
Found the main bearing was scorched and the bearing supporting the clutch basket was worn as well.

I had them replace the all of the clutch plates and basket, plus all bearings and seals
All is now well at 213K

Main bearing as in crank shaft main ???
What oil filters had you been using ??? I've seen some that will not pass and oil pressure test.
