I have a 1971 C10 with a 3 speed on the column. I can put the shifter in all 3 gears and reverse but when I let out the clutch the truck does not want to move until i accelerate and increase the RPM.
As far as I know the clutch is good. There is no noise or odor that indicates to me the
clutch is bad, but I don't know for sure it could be I'm no expert on clutches. How can I
know for sure if it is good or not. Also no the drive shaft does not turn. I've been
working on the linkage on the steering column. Trying to check to see if it is going in
gear all the way or not. What do you think? The clutch seem to have a full pedal.
When the trucks rear end is on jack stands the wheels will spin in all gears. when it is
off the stands the truck will not move, and the drive shaft does not turn. after checking
the linkage on the column it is moving freely and shifting the linkage fully on the
column and the transmision
Sounds like clutch is bad.or something wrong with transmission main input shaft
Either bad clutch or the clutch fork isn't allowing full engagement, usually I see the opposite from that though. Does it make any noises? If you can sit still with the clutch pedal not depressed then it most likely is the clutch. If something is only allowing partial engagement then the clutch will be bad if not already. If the trans was damaged it wouldn't move at all and probably make some horrible noises.
