I literally have to push the clutch pedal "through" the floor to shift out of first or to put in first gear. When the engine is hot, the problem gets worse.
I've changed the following:
Cluch Plate x 2
Clutch x 2
Slave Cylinder
Master Cylinder
In the process of changing the Clutch Fork.
I'm at the back toward the rear-end of the truck and I've unbolted the caps on the U-Joint (differential end). The book says that I should just have to pull the drive shaft free but that is not happening.
I don't want to damage the bearing cap but I'm stuck right now. It appears it's just snug inside the area but I'm not sure.
Do you
have the same problem?

OK you have the wheels chocked and it is in nuetral? You can't have presure on the u-joint when you are trying to remove it from the rear end yoke. Then you just put a good screwdriver under the cap and pry up it will come out. I do think that is more of an adjustment problem or a hydrolic problem however. Hope this helps if you need anything else just ask.

Rogr that. Ihave everything loose and I have it on jacks.I'm following the book. It looks as if it should just pop out but this is a real bugger. The retaining clips have nothing to do with securing it in, right? It's just cover the cap and seal, correct?

Just put a pri bar or good strong screw driver behind the u-joint and pry on it. It will pop out. Then take electrical tape and tape the end up so the caps stay on it till you put it back in.

Thanxxx! I did just that this morning, figuring I'd just give it some muscle and I popped right out. I was intially afraid of damaging the part but all had turned out well.
Just now got done dropping the tranmission. After inspecting the transmission, I've got re-order the Clutch Fork as the replacement part is completely wrong. Looks like I'll be down at least a week as I'm writing to you from Heidelberg, Germany.

Over here helping out the US Army as Defense Contractor supporting the Command Control of all our assets in the Middle East. Great job, lts of kudos from the troops!

Thanxxx for the Help! Hooah!
