2000 F250 Manual Trans Clutch Fork
Well, the long story starts out with my truck having problems shifting gears. So, I figure it's got to be the clutch master. I need my truck for work and decide, it's best to just pay for it to get fixed. I head over to EAST BAY FORD TRUCKS IN OAKLAND, CA. The service guys says it's definitely not the clutch master. I say it's so. The mechanic says it's so and changes that out. Test drove fine. I pick it up and when I step on the clutch, it stays on the floor. I tell the service guy and he says he knew it wasn't the master and says it's the pressure plate. I said I don't think so, I think it's the clutch fork. The mechanic (3 of them) figure the clutch fork is somehow misaligned. Now the service manager says it'll be $440 labor plus a new clutch fork. And I should be changing out the clutch. I tell him they misaligned the clutch fork when they stuffed the clutch master in. They won't eat the cost. So, I told him I'd rather fix it myself.
Sorry for the rant, but I was nervous bringing in my truck to the dealer and now I know why. The last time I was robbed, the guy had a gun.
Anyway, has anyone had a problem with their clutch fork? I figure I'm going to need to pull the tranny because there's no way to get to the fork from the clutch master hole.
