I think the flywheel is the best place to start. They are held on by a large( 36mm,I believe) gland nut and have to be removed to set end play of the crank, it may have also been refaced during a clutch job and R&Rd. If not torque correctly they have been known to come loose. It will require engine removal to correct, if that's the case. An easy way to check without pulling the engine is to check crank end play at the pulley end. If it is excessive, that's a good indication that it needs adjusted or the flywheel is coming loose. There are 4 dowel pins that locate the flywheel, so it will still rotate with the starter. They will however cause damage to the crank and/or flywheel if not caught in time.
