Re: 2000 7.3 ZF6 extremely difficult to get in R and L
I just tried shifting in R and L with the truck parked and motor off. It would not go in R and L, so I tried 1, no go, 2 - 5 went in then back to L and R and it went in with hardly any resistance!!
I guess it is possible the clutch may still be slightly dragging, which would make it difficult to go in R and L, right? Any other possible causes besides maybe the hydraulics or a bent fork? I guess I don't understand how a clutch can "go out" unless its air in the lines, or bent fork. Is there a surefire way to test if the clutch is dragging? (I'm thinking for MINIMAL RESISTANCE jack up the rear and put the truck in 1 with the clutch fully depressed and see if it turns the wheels, if not then it is not dragging. Think I should do this?)
