    ok so i'm really thinkin of going with a hydraulic clutch. i got a 85 K5. friend did it on his truck and it's nice. just wonderin the pros and cons of doing this upgrade. what's problematic about it and would it be worth the money if i still drive it like i stole it. lol it'd mainly be used for a daily driver but it'd see it's fair share of offroad too. mud, hills, trails, etc.. thanks for any info

    first time your Z-Bar linkage binds up, you will realize the better feel of the mechanical clutch, isn't worth it. I'd convert anything I owned from now on.

    hay also my pedel assembley was from a 1/2 ton with vac brakes. all going in to a 1 ton with hydro. the best part for me was my pedel assy i scored had a second hole above the first so i could move the pin up to match the hydro rod position.

    i actualy removed the pin from my old auto setup and welded it in to the second hole. so now i have a 2 pin pedel for vac or hydro if i ever part the truck out.
