New clutch or auto for puller
First of all wife is driving truck. She has little experience with manuals.
We just took F350 to its first pull. Wife got 250ft, then friend pulled it and got 280 (both in higher classes with 700–900hp trucks). He says clutch was slipping towards end. It's a Bronco Graveyard HD. Truck still moves around fine, just don't think it will handle the power. I think there is some adjustment to linkage (haven't messed with one in 15 or so years). So should I get better/stronger clutch this winter or switch to auto. Did the switch on my F250. Have access to parts, no prob. It's just that an auto that "might" hold up is 3-4 grand. And I'm not familiar with rebuilders besides maybe Monster Transmission.
