Ok just got my truck back from the shop. Had my southbend dd 3600 installed :party018:

Is there anyway to adjust it? It doesnt seem to engage untill the pedal is almost all the way out?? I dont know it could just be im not used to it, is this normal? Yea i have an upgraded hydro's. Thanks.

Maybe be the fork would hit if you adjust anymore in. I dont know though. We did a DD install on a buddies truck and we had to do it like that so the fork wouldnt rub the pressure plate, otherwise I dont know bud.

hmm well i will drive it somemore, and see how i feel about it. The guy who installed it has been doing this for many years and has done alot of them so im sure everything is right. Im guessing im just not used to it.

Thats what I'd do. The aftermarket clutches are surely different in all areas.

I would just leave it how it is thats how mine was setup and loved it that way, then after the new motor was put in it released right off bottom and i hated that, its more of a personal preference though how you like it.

Yeah mine's off the bottom. I keep meaning to adjust it again, but it's working.

Fleece just put a G-56 in mine, it was an auto, and i have that same clutch and mine engages just as soon as you let the pedal off the floor. I don't know any different seeing how i have never had a DD clutch. So yours is totally the opposite of mine. Either it can be adjusted or mine is F'd up.

Ok sweet i did some adjusting and got it where i like it. I have another question! When i shut the truck off with the clutch pushed in it makes a loud noise. Like a grindy clunk? If i have it in neutral and shut if off with the clutch out it dont do this. Also does it when I start the truck in gear with the clutch pushed in. It started doing it this morning, BEFOR I adjusted on it lol. I only have about 200miles on it. Any ideas of what this noise is? Thanks

Yes I noticed it prior to adjusting. I adjusted it all the way both ways and it still seemed to do it. If i shut the truck off in neutral with the clutch out it dont do it. It just has the clutch rattle sound. But if the clutch is pushed in it soulds like the rattle sound all smashed in to one clunk?
