that 3-5mm plate between the gearbox and block was fine, may got a little bent, but put it back to normal.

would that be the culprit?

Could low gearbox oil cause this problem?, i had the chance to remove the oil and measure its capacity, only 2.4 litres came out.

Low gear oil will certainly cause a lottle of rattle as not all the cogs would get lubricated, Get it refilled with oil and see how it goes.

Is the clutch plate fitted the correct way round? Sounds silly but seen it done before and what happens is that the clutch works as fairly normal but the plate springs rubs against the flywheel bolts,if it was that,it would stop making the noise once the clutch is dipped again.It could also be a reason for it slipping.

Could be a faulty clutch kit also.

Hi again everyone
It seems like new gearbox oil of 3.7 litres stopped the noisy rattling! I drained the gearbox oil and only 2 litres was measured so It seemed like no oil was getting to the input shaft bearing at all - after extensive research!
I added 3.7 litres and started it up and all is ok! thank you for the help and support!
sorry It has taken this long to repost, its been hard trying to find funds and time!
Appreciate the help! soon ill be getting the VZR back on the road, I sorely miss it!

Impossible to even assemble the clutch on an SR20 this way, the bolts would not even push the plate on.

Lease the issues have been resolved mate, Oil starvation can certainly cause it so least no damage done and caught early.
