    Sounds like you got a bad clutch release bearing.

    do you find clutch release bearings next to the blinker fluid?

    Playing aside, did you change out your throw out bearing when you did the clutch?
    This sounds like the beginning of the throwout bearing going bad.

    does it chatter when the pedal is all the way out also? or just when pushing in to release the clutch??
    is it better /worse/not there when your moving in gear pressing on the gas?
    is it there when in neutral at engine idle?
    did you replace the clutch?
    what the throwout bearing replaced?
    was the clutch aligned at install using the correct alignment tool? or did someone just wiggle the tranny around till it all fit?
    were the correct bolts reused with the new clutch?(they have a shorter head for clearance)

    Was there any oil residue in the old clutch(from a leaky rear main). Did you clean or resurface the flywheel(if needed)....

    Clutch release bearing is the proper name for "throwout bearing".

    It chatters when the pedal is all the way out but stops when the pedal is pushed roughly 1/4th the way in.
    Its gets worse when the throttle is pushed.
    It does still chatter when in nuetral.
    The throw out bearing was replaced.
    The alignment tool that came with the kit was used in the install.
    The bolts were the same one that came from the old one.
