and the clutch was frozen soild it was so stuck that i went to full throttle and pulled back so hard on the clutch lever /pully brake that i stalled out the 8.2l. so pulled the clutch cover and about a cup of water ran out clutch was rusted solid. i loosend all the nuts and hit it with a 5lb sledge till it released. cleaned it all up put it back together adjusted the pressure plate and then sprayed it all down with lube.
it works so smooth now and way better than it ever did. cost was free
then took it on a hour round trip to the gas station no problems. ran it back home on 100% d2 picks of the smoke when i stabbed the throttle and just running down the road was a puff puff puff of white smoke (gasoline produces 0 smoke) it was cool looking. i lost some speed on the straight diesel vs gas
now giving it a proper clean up
