Subject: hydraulic clutch conversion
Date: Sat, 19 Aug 2000 02:21:49 GMT

Fellas -- I want to convert my clutch linkage from mechanical to hydraulic
to try and get rid of my clutch chatter but, before I go to the trouble, was
wondering if anyone on the list who has a hydraulic setup still has a
problem with clutch chatter? In other words, I'm trying to figure out if
going hydraulic would likely solve my problem. I've tried EVERYTHING else
over the last 5 years. I have a 3-spd toploader with the famous "Chatterbox"
clutch (10" 3-finger style).

BTW I sneaked over from the 61-79 list to ask for your help since our trucks
are mostly from the pre-hydraulic-clutch era. Thanks in advance.

Try a HP setup?  Centerforce?  Ram?

i was thinking of using the sheet silicone which is only about 1/8th an
inch thick and cover the whole roof.  from there i was going to use
automobile floor carpet to cover the nasty black surface.  btw, the
sheet silicone is what the jet airliners use to insulate the planes from
sound and extreme temps.  i have a friend that used 3 layers of Dynamat
on his car and it is insulated VERY good, but i am not looking to spend
lots of $$$$$.  i got the sheet silicone for free!!

btw Les, i have to have the stereo cranked in order to stay sane.  right
at 65 mph the exhaust and intake sounds combine to create a loud drone.
once i get some money i am going to yank out the rubber floor mat,
insulate with the sheet silicone, then carpet over it.  i am also going
to take the door panels off and insulate those as well.  the step after
that will be to replace the rubber seals around the windows.  but ya
know, if i wasn't running straight pipes it wouldn't be as bad!!

I haven't seen any discussion about this on the list, bu I find that posting
list inconvenient and a waste of bandwidth.  if I wanted to know about the
postings to other lists, I would subscribe to them.  This list of posts
takes up more than 2/3 of the digest in which it appears.

MUST this be posted, or is it something the list-members could jointly
decide to eliminate?

Thanks.

The message boards, its banner ads and its users purchasing
products pay for the vast majority of the upkeep of the site.
The list server users foot less than 5% of the tab yet use
a significant portion of the server bandwidth and 10x more
of my time to administer.  It has been a drain, both to my
time and financially.

The postings have increased message board usage when they've
been sent and that helps pay the bills. The message board
posting notifications are relevant and on topic, if they
weren't, site traffic wouldn't increase every time they're
sent.

The list members cannot jointly decide to eliminate them.
So to answer your question, "Ken - do we need this?", the
answer is yes.
