clutch/gearbox grinding noise

please can anybody help me. I have a 166 2.0 twin spark which the engine has recently been rebuilt, before this the clutch plate rattled intermittently out of gear. when the engine was rebuilt a new clutch was fitted and the clutch plate problem was solved, however after about 850 miles there was a juddering and grinding noise from the clutch/gearbox on over run. A second clutch was fitted but the problem was still there, the car is still with the garage who seem to not be able to find the fault , the friction plate spline centre has a spring clip that appears to keep breaking. Does anybody have any idea what could cause this?
