Yep, they go bad. Get one of those vacuum thingies at Pep Boys and hook it
up to the actuator instead of the vacuum line and see if the cable for the
carb moves.

As I understand it, there is only one you want and that is the 5 sp
overdrive. If I run into any I'll buy them, then charge a fortune for them.
There was an article in one of the 4x4 mags in the last few months on Clark
transmissions. I dig it up if I can.

Deacon

You will be looking for Big Trucks. The F400-f600 series- late 50's early
60's. There is only one of about 11 models worth working on. That is the 5
sp overdrive. I'll post the tag number as soon as I find the article.

Here is a little info to get you started Deacon;

Model First Second Third Fourth Fifth Reverse
280v 7.48 4.38 2.40 1.48 1.00 6.30
280vo 5.98 3.50 1.86 1.00 .80 5.04
282v 6.99 4.09 2.27 1.17 1.00 5.89
285v 6.99 4.09 2.24 1.47 1.00 5.89
288v 5.98 3.50 1.91 1.37 1.00 5.04
289v 5.98 3.50 1.91 1.18 1.00 5.04
282vhd 7.26 4.10 2.18 1.17 1.00 6.00
285vhd 7.26 4.10 2.24 1.47 1.00 6.00
cl450 8.05 4.35 2.45 1.48 1.00 8.05
cl455 6.99 3.78 2.13 1.28 1.00 6.99
cl457 6.99 3.78 2.13 1.17 1.00 6.99
cl551 7.52 4.35 2.54 1.52 1.00 6.27
cl557 6.82 3.68 1.99 1.17 1.00 5.30
cl558 6.36 3.68 2.15 1.28 1.00 5.30

The 280 series is rated at 330 lb-ft of torque, 405 series is 405 lb-ft
and the 550 series is rated for 490 lb-ft or torque.

The input shafts on the Clarks are 1 1/2" in diameter and the stock size
clutch disk was 13" so finding a disk that will fit an 11 or 12" clutch
will be the tricky part.

Look for Ford or GM truck (1 1/2 ton to 5 ton) made between the mid to
late 60's to the early 80's. If you find a mid 80's truck take some
measurements of the Eaton transmissions. Eaton bought out Clark and
makes parts for the newer trannys but not the old Clarks.

Happy pulling ;)

Well I was wrong!

I finally got to the DMV and picked up a registration handbook and there
on page 27 it says:

"Statewide, all 1966 and newer vehicles require a smog certification for
biennial renewal, title transfer, or original registration
applications."


It also states:

"Gasoline powered vehicles 1966 and older, are exempt from smog
requirements"

Hummm? isn't that a "catch 22" if you own a 66

Well any way, in 1980 something, when I bought and Registered My 56 F100
the requirement in the L.A. area was 55 to 65 needed smog once at title
transfer. It looks like they came to their senses on that one and
changed it when I wasn't looking. Sorry if I caused any confusion with
my earlier posting. ( weeks ago )

Smog free in 98!

Long live SB 42!
