stock clutch capabilities/trans prob ?

when i first bought my truck the shifter stick seemed to jiggle alot driving around, this somehow eventually died down and it hasnt done it since, but now every once and a while i will get a large vibration while cruising, or even accelerating, from the floor near the trans. my first thought was that i might need a trans mount, but then after the original optimistic thoughts subsided, i realized its probably alot worse. ive only experienced extreme vibration on the highway cruising at 70-75. but its not a constant problem.

anybody experienced a similar problem? what could it be.



also, does anybody know what the hp/tq limits are for a stock clutch on a 96 powerstroke w/ 5sp.

Have you checked your u-joints/carrier bearing/driveline balance? There can be a lot of odd vibrational issues when you have a driveline issue. Is there any gear or bearing noise associated with this vibration?

Stock clutch is good for stock power depending on how you use the truck. Probably the stock dual mass flywheel will give up long before the clutch does. When you replace it get a South Bend and be done with it.

no, the only time i really notice it is when im pulling a load and accelerating, or when cruising on the freeway, ill have to back down because i can really feel the intense vibration from the floorboards. illhave to check these driveline potential failures to see.
