This is the dump truck that we used on the farm I grew up on. Soon to be parked at home, if all goes well.

At this point I have redone most of the braking system, replaced the rear oil seals on the wheels, tuned it up (it has only been 25 years since the last one.....). I have also replaced the battery, all the tires (at least 3 were original to the truck) and starter solenoid.

And the Saga continues.......

On the way to pick up firewood earlier this year, I pushed in the clutch, and got a loud bang, the truck lurched, and the clutch pedal went completely to the floor.  Once I got it back to where I could work on it, found the following:
Picture of the transmission still in the truck. You can see where the arm sheared off of the shaft on the left hand side of the transmission, just below and to the left of the spring.
View of the transmission with the floor cover off. You can see the shaft that sheared off on the left side, just below the sprint that is hanging down in the picture
A somewhat better view of it...

Picture of the end of the shaft, with the engine out of the truck.  Nothing like a manufacturing defect that takes 38 years to show up.....
