What is wrong with the clutch? If it is stuck, put a tow strap on a tree and drive off with your foot depressed on the pedal. It will free itself.

I think it just needs to be bled better. The pedal stays down.

Install a proper clutch return spring.

I tried to follow that post? So is it spring or no spring? And if spring, which one.
Drove the truck today, its awesome, one fender is on many more parts to go.
Another bled solved the clutch, and taking the t/c out of Neutral!

Will do, thanks Ron.
George said I shouldn't need it, but it does seem pretty soft.

Soooo close

Its coming together nicely! Drove it around the parking lot, it is a totally different truck.
Some down Shifting is a little rough, but it seemed to stop after a couple of laps around the lot,( hoping its just because of the long time sitting) and I'm going to put synthetic in the tranny Monday, which really helped my old lt77
I finally got the oil cooler lines worked out, Another $150 bucks, on top of what I payed for them.


Ron If you have an extra spring, It'd be great if I could buy one from you, George is out.

Its top secret!


Actually in NY state, you can get your foot in the door with a couple years work experienc and the willingness to go back to school and get your masters in 7 years.My situation is a little different, I'm a Special Ed teacher, I work as a Dean of sorts.
Check with the VA state ed department and find the requorements for vocational teachers.In NY the jobs seem to be a well kept secret. They are still screwed up in this economy, but when we interview we get 2 or 3 applicants, where any other school job would probably have over 100.
