Here's one: OTC 6760 Fuel Filter Wrench

Either the plug isn't completely seated or if it was the outer pigtail you changed out, one or more of your splices is defective.

It's probably the new clutch disk being stiffer than the old one (different springs in the center). The ZF6 is known for making a lot of noise, because of the mass of the gears and the torsional...

You could measure the length and get one from a local parts store. You'd have to bend it to fit, but it would work just like the original.
