Look up Clutch Industies.
I got a set for a V8 Acco with RoadRanger from them, around $600 if I remember right. They had all trucks on their catalogue.
Cheers Steve

if the old pressure plate is a spring and lever type,its likely reusable.......if so ,just a clutch plate can usually be had for $150 or thereabouts............its not wise to reuse diaphragm plates,unless they look near unused /new...........regrease the throwout if the bearings runs smooth......they are expensive too.

Its blown the front gearbox seal. Gear oil every where.
Disengages when it feels like it Does all sorts of horrible stuff.
Hydraulics are perfect Cheers.

just a smidgin too much grease on the spline will do that too......I bought a Inter once was like an auto.....cleaned up the friction srface with brake cleaner ,and it was good as new.......Its pretty unusual for gearbox oil to come out........unless you live around some pretty steep hills............was the gearbox overfilled.?.........only time Ive seen this is when a kid went crazy with a waterblaster cleaning a truck ,and filled the gearbox completely full of water...........workin on old trucks is a breeze,try getting under a new Volvo.....cant do it unless youre skinnier than a snake.

Yes the gearbox oil level is below the side fill plug. And Bell housing is oily as well as all the clutch gear and the bottom tin access cover has some oil in itas well . And its definitely from the box. STRONG HYPOID OIL smell. Its ready to pull the box out and deal with it Clean it all up . Brake clean. Or replace the clutch. Weather permitting. CHEERS

If you are going to pull the box out anyway, the front seal can be accessed easily enough by undoing the 4 bolts around the input shift housing, working it out by tapping it and leave the shaft where it is unless your going to install new bearings on it. If you do decide to remove the shaft, be mindful that where the inner teeth mesh with the main shaft, there is a gap of about 4 or 5 tooth spaces which must go in facing downwards, 6 o’clock . You’ll see why if you remove it. Dave

Meant to add, those teeth have to be in the same position to remove the shaft from the assembly as well.
