    I went muddin the other day and now when i start to brake it pules hard to the right.i think i might know what it is. i need to replace the copper washers around the bango bolt (i think thats what it is called) on the front left brake line. also i went into a puddle my clutch got a lot softer. if any one could tell me what happened and what i need to do to fix it.

    You might just need to clean the brakes out. If you have drum brakes on the rear, they can get filled with mud and cause pulling.

    clean out your brakes , repace copper washers, replace fluid in the entire system (use DOT 5) if you don't have ABS, And check to see if bellhousing cover is still on-if it's not get one it will keep out the water and mud. Even if the cover is in place see if there are open gaps that might be sealed with RTV like silicone .
