ford diesel

i am in the process of converting a 7.3 diesel from 5 speed to automatic,
and need to add a link to the throttle shaft on the injector pump. can i
remove the shaft from the pump, install downshift link, slide shaft back
into pump, or do i have to remove the pump and take it to an injector repair
shop???

Have you found a clutch strong enough to handle the

Re: ford diesel

i put a centerforce "dual friction" button clutch in it 15 years ago, and
the only problem was the pos dual mass flywheel. the clutch and pressure
plate are like new 15 years later.
