Q: 2 things here that i am getting confused about. first i thought that a vehicles gvwr was the total weight a truck could carry/pull. no - its the total weight that the truck is designed to carry - as in weight on the axles. the gcvwr gross combined vehicle weight rating is the total weight of truck and trailer. thats why the 1-tons are rated to carry a little over 5000lbs. in payload but rated to to up to a little over 15000lbs. when properly equipped. secondly isnt a f350 one of those dinky toy kind of things. we are talking real trucks here. the f-350 is a 1-ton class pickup comparable to the ram 3500s. look im not a big fan of fords... i dont like the way they design things and i certainly dont like their engines - but brand-loyalty aside the superdutys are good trucks built as well as if not better than the rams. and yes - it does hurt a bit to say that .

well john i disagree but then you werent the one that bled the system and restored the freeplay on that rented 20k pound forklift were you the clue for me was that it got progressively worse as the drivetrain warmed up. one thing has to be remembered about anything made by human hands; it can do things it isnt supposed to do. -- budd cochran none. by design there is supposed to be a small fraction of a inch clearance. this was seen in the mechanical systems as your pedals freeplay. when air is left in the system the air can warm up and expand causing the fingers to ride the bearing. not likely since there is no closed end to allow pressure to build. once the master cylinder is in the retracted position the entire system is open to the reservoir any expansion of the fluid or entrapped air will merely push that volume of fluid back into the reservoir. when the clutch pedal is slightly depressed the piston covers the mc port to prevent pressure from back feeding into the reservoir. .
