    Awesome. Glad you got it. I figured it had to be the orifice.

    Well I had a little set back. I was taking the family out for a sort of grand opening of a family business. Well about a half hour into the drive the clutch just dropped to the floor. Not good!

    Fortunately this transmission floats gears fairly well. I was able to make it out and back the hour drive without the clutch. I think people really appreciated the black cloud when I started it up on gear LOL.

    I pulled the slave cylinder out and realised how it came apart. The main rod came un threaded from the internal piston. I am not exactly sure what caused this but after some clean up with a tap I screwed it tight back together.

    I did take some time to re drill some holes in the clutch arm to get some more leverage. Now the clutch feels MUCH better and is probably close to a stock pedal pressure to disengage. It's a much different feel to get used to but seems to work well.

    That is something I have been wanting to do for a while but have been sticking to my promise of no vehicle playing until I get some home projects done.[​IMG][​IMG]

    She was a little apprehensive about me still driving the truck until I showed her I could manage. The brakes still work fine, stopping is what is important!

    Just the last turn of thread pulled out. The other half inch or so threads inside the piston were fine. It somehow unscrewed itself internally or was never put together right from the start.

    Well, it sucks you had it poop out on a trip with the family, but..... it's a plus that you were able to improve the pedal feel.

    Not much to update but just put another 1200 miles on towing this weekend through the mountains and back with no issues. It feels good to just fuel and go.

    Even though it pulls well I would like to upgrade the turbo and injection pump. Might start looking out for a HX40 or a S360. Something in that class for my next step.

    Nothing really new, just putting the truck to work and daily driving. Still pulling hard, this is my 3rd load of oak like this.[​IMG]
