cradduckj is starting off with a positive reputation.


here is a picture looking inside the inspection hole and you can see when the throwout bearing moves it's 1" of travel it will just make it to the fingers.

Ross,
I guess that it has been too long since I do not remember doing anything unusual when I changed Willard from the original light duty 3 speed to the HD 3 speed. My memory was that it was a stock bolt in using the same clutch and driveshaft. Willard was running a 56 Buick Nailhead back then (the reason for the change to the HD 3 speed).
I think that I did it in 1978 so memory is probably a problem!
