It's not that I'm going away from the Rekluse, so much as I like to
change things around, and better remember what different set-ups are
like. ( Variety and all that.) I just seem to be dragging my feet on
doing without it.
Plus, I'd hate to lose that finely honed clutch control I developed
over all those years. <G>

See you all later! The truck is warmed up and it's time to go.

Jim, thanks for the CR plate info. I guess I read a post wrong on
Talking Smack. My '05 has ZERO drag. It squeels when abused. I
actually prefer the '00 clutch because it has never made a sound and
the drag is only a small annoyance to me. Once warm, the drag is
less, but always there.
