Well guys, I'm back home now. Not only did I have that clutch problem (still do). As I was trying to leave, my batteries died. It was like instant. I started the truck up no problem. Fired strong. I moved the truck up forward and turned it off. 5 minutes later I tried to start it and I heard the click clicking of super weak batteries. No warning at all. The Walmart batteries bit the dust after 5 years. I called the nearest Walmart at 100 miles away, $80 a piece. A local garage had Interstates for $110 a piece. I couldn't risk driving out across the desert so in went the Interstates.
Back to the clutch. It's definitely not disengaging completely. I swapped out the clutch fork before when the original one bent and broke. The new clutch fork had a new design. I swapped out the T/O bearing when I changed out the clutch. I guess I'll need to yank that 6 spd. I'll pick up another fork and T/O bearing first. If the current one is bent, I may weld a piece to reinforce the new one before I install it.
