Default Successful clutch install

The 29 had a bad clutch chatter sense I rebuilt the whole car about 15 yrs ago,everything was new,but knowing it had to come back apart just put it off till a couple weeks ago,got into the V-8 soon after I finished the 29 so kept putting it off,Bryce J came down one day and we had the clutch out in just a few hours,pulling the rear end found out the clutch disc was to big to fit in the PP hole,Bruce knew all about the big hole little hole PP.also the fingers on the PP were all lose and out of adjustment .Found the PPInfo on how to adjust it on the A forum got the fingers set to 11/16 + or_ .001..Put it all back togeather by myself adjust clutch ,brakes also with the stick gauge.Took it for a drive today,snow is gone,,I couldn't believe how smooth the clutch worked,like fluid drive,,after all the years I finally got it right,brakes worked the best they ever had also.Everyone likes a picture.

Nice truck. Has that been used to haul anything besides feather pillows or cotton balls? Doesn't look like it has had cinder blocks or field stones hauled in it ..........ever.
