    This is from Momma Boudreaux up in Idaho. Can't get her Ford fixed and she didn't like my advice of sticking a couple blocks of C-4 on it, so hopefully someone somewhere around here knows what exactly the problem is.....

    The truck goes in
    the shop Monday. This makes the third time for this problem. The throw out
    bearing was making noise, so we were thinking the bearing was fixing to go
    out. So to Tremonton we go, the closest Ford garage. They also repair and
    sell Dodges there!!!!! So they pulled the tranny out. Seems like the
    flywheel is needing to be replaced. It was a dual mass flywheel and we
    could go with the same, but it would cost like $1500. They told us about a
    single mass flywheel made by Six States that all together with the flywheel,
    complete clutch, and bearing for $1200. And a lot of the farmers and
    ranchers go with the single mass for their trucks. So we went with the
    single mass. Well, it started making the same noise again. Then the first
    time I was backing the trailer into the barn, the truck started hopping like
    the clutch was slipping or I wasn't giving it enough diesel. Well, it
    wasn't me. Marshall was putting the trailer back in the barn by himself and
    had the same problem. We took it back over for the noise and I mentioned
    the hopping. They checked out the noise and said it was the clutch springs
    returning to where they belong. Well, Thursday I was backing the trailer
    into the barn again. The truck was hopping so darn much, it was beating me
    to death. I had to ride the clutch to get it to move. Finally got the
    trailer back in the barn. Was parking the truck and could smell the clutch
    burning. So got on the phone again and told them that something is
    seriously wrong with the clutch. So back in on Monday. They are gonna do
    something or I am gonna make them eat that flywheel, clutch, etc. When I
    was describing the problem to the service manager, he says, there got to be
    a problem.

    Would also be inclined to inform them where to put th new clutch...

    Had a similar prob with a 92 F350, with dual clutch set up and such, similar set up if not same. After the new clutch/flywheel/press plate changed, it would hop and the pedal was all the way on the floor.

    After messing with it forever, the tranny guy finally changed all of the hyrdo lines, slave cyl, fork and mounting hardware. Finally works correctly.
