Well just kinda curious on a few things.

How do I diagnosis what the health of my clutch is? It seems... grabby? I can let the clutch pedal maybe a 3rd or the way out and it dumps the full load of the trans on it. If I stick it in reverse I let the pedal out *maybe* an inch and its already booking it backwards. I tried luggin it (25 mph in OD) and floored it and it didnt slip, steady rpm run all the way through. I kind of have to slip it through first and second other wise it kinda does this bucking thing. It WILL chirp the tires if I let out over half of the pedal in first, and I'm sittin on 35's.

I have noticed I need to slip the clutch or at least not accelerate over rough roads, or it bounces and bucks. The one thing that is weird is the clutch pedal is soft. I dont mean spongy but it is really easy to move, but returns just as fast as I can let my foot up.

Any pointers on how I should drive this thing? Tips to driving this beast?

And whats the best way to squeaze the mpg outta this thing? I know they are supposed to get better than autos, but im not expecting a miracle on 35's in a f350 lol. My current shift pattern is winding it up to about 2k in every gear i need til I get to cruising speed, then stick it in 5th and keep it goin.

Thanks in advance.

Jason

mainly first gear. any gear after just lugs it down. and i think reverse does as well iirc. i just dont pay attention to it anymore lol.

it was really jumpy when the clutch was new but after buring it a few times and just driving, it smoothed out.

I want to know the number my truck is assigned to figure out how much I can pull. I know I could basically hook up to and yank whatever I wanted to with this thing, but I want to know what I can "legally" haul. I know how to do the math, I'm just lookin for the numbers.
