I am not an expert on your vehicle but you are describing the traits of a bad EGR valve. If your vehicle is equipped with one I bet this is your problem.

It is usually caused by the swivel that connects the clutch cable to the cross shaft or the one that connects the cross shaft to the clutch pull rod. It gets a groove worn into it and when the clutch is depressed the swivel pops when it is pulled from an unworn area to the worn area. You can usually reverse the swivel and correct the issue.The sound transfers up the clutch cable and sounds as tho

If you have a head gasket leak of any size it needs to be addressed immediately. The hot combustion gasses etch away at the cylinder barrel contact area and will quickly destroy the cylinder leading to additional unneeded expense.

It is my understanding that this bracket add on was to stop shifters from coming out of gear in severe pulling or stopping conditions such as construction site conditions under severe useage. If your trans and motor mounts are good I do not believe you need this accessory. My Rampside only has one of the original brackets and is not connected to anything and I have no issues with the transmission

I believe it is welded in. I don't think the bolts you see are holding it in.

Best question is has Clarks determined the problem and are they doing anything about it? I do not purchase any from them due to the reported failures.

All the bumper bolts on my 69 are an anodized black color. The small screws that hold the right and left front side marker lamp closeout panels in the trunk are a natural silver color.

What grinds my shorts is that you can do a 1000 hour restoration and have a 99% perfect car and in a car show a rat rod that someone welded together in a weekend gets the trophy!

A harder pedal after installing Silicone fluid tells me you had air in the old fluid or system before the change over. I want a good hard pedal or anything at my age.

Just snug it up good. It is not that important since the O ring seals the fitting not the bolt torque.

For a pedal to feel differently the fluid would have to be able to be compressed or it has air in the system somewhere. I do not know any liquid that can be compressed.

The silicone fluid was in my 65 for over 40 years and looked as good as the day I put it in back in the 70s and there was absolutely no rust in the wheel cylinders. I just installed Dot 5 in my 69 and I expect it to last the rest of my days.

I recently replaced the brake lines on my 65 that had been replaced in 1976. I replaced them with lines that I hand made in 1976 and wanted them to look better so ordered lines from Clarks. Anyway in 1976 I replaced the wheel cylinder cups and master cylinder pistons and cups. When I opened everything up for the first time last month, the master cylinder and wheel cylinders looked as good as the

As anyone knows that has replaced upper ball joints the originals were riveted on. Replacements come with bolts. This looks terrible in my opinion especially when doing a correct restoration. I discovered these items and ordered a set and they look great and work like a charm. They easily bolt in and are not that expensive.

Has anyone come up with a replacement bushing for the lower mounting? If the shock is still good but the bushing is worn out what are you using as a replacement?

Place a floor jack under the shock mount area. Slowly jack the suspension toward normal ride height. Insert a medium size phillips screwdriver through one of the control arm holes into the corresponding differential hole and lever the bracket to a position that one of the control arm bolts can be threaded in. Continue jacking suspension and tightening the installed bolt until another bolt can be
