It's been a crazy couple of weeks. I was able to get Ed up and running again. It was just in time because I sent the truck in to have the transmission changed and tuggers still down with the clutch problem. I had to get a new brake drum because the old one was too worn to turn. I took some time to powdercoat them.
With 2 projects down, I decided to figure out what was wrong with tugger, my baja. I knew it was some kind of clutch problem but that can still be a lot of different things. It felt like the clutch cable had snapped so I started there first. I removed the pedal cluster and even though the pedals look pretty bad, the clutch cable looked new along with the clutch hook on the pedal cluster. I am going to rebuild the pedal cluster while I have it out.
