    Merle Coggins got a reaction from PatS.... in Clutch, I don't need no stinkin clutch!   
    I've done clutchless shifting for years, but mostly with newer syncro-mesh transmissions. This summer I worked on my clutchless shifts in my B2C with a crash box 4 speed. I started getting better, but I find that since my truck has Fluid Drive, which essentially acts like a big, heavy flywheel, the timing is slightly different that I would normally expect. Once I figured out the timing I could shift just fine. And since I do have FD, all I had to do was get it down to 3rd or 2nd and stop with the brake. Then I could let off the brake and drive away and continue shifting without ever using the clutch. It was fun.

    Now the real fun begins. I love getting the 'thumbs up' and waves from other motorists while cruising around in my truck. I also enjoy seeing people check out the truck as I come out of a store. And of course the chats with folk at gas stations and such.
     
    Enjoy it.

    Cool video. First trips are the best!!
    Did it not want to idle? It sounded like you had to keep restarting it.
