mogless, except for my friends MB4-94. And a bunch of other diesel junk.
So I've been hunting through your archives looking for answers and have found a great bunch.... so here's what I'm up against. I bought a 71 416, the cab isn't origional, neither is the bed, or engine. I got it cause it was close, the cab has little rust, and the engine has low hours. The cab is interesting, it's got a passenger side roof hatch, I've only seen those on 404 firetrucks. I've been slowly sorting out basic upkeep items to get it safe. I've done all new brake lines, hard and rubber, clutch and brake masters, fluids and filters. The thruck sat for two years with the clutch slave stuck out, I swapped in a new slave to get it on the trailer. Everything was fine at first, but the clutch has gotten 'slower'. If I release the pedal, there is a few second delay before the disc grabs, it got progressively worse over the course of two weeks. I did grease the throwouty shaft. Is it possible that the pressure plate was damaged from sitting engaged for so long? I'm leaving a few pics, you'll see the progress over the next few months, nothing like Vons' this will be a work truck. Please don't say anything about the color, I know....
