Bad News Comes In Spades

Okay, so you remember that truck of mine. Well, the weld made on the clutch arm broke this morning on the way to work. It was a crappy weld, anyway.

Make a mental note, folks - crappy welds do not hold up.

Not a block from my house, I depressed the clutch and it went, "POP. That sickening pedal-to-the-floor thump came next and there I was, no shift - no nuttin'. Dang!

Well - this really stinks

Okay, I dont have to work tomorrow (FRIDAY) except to make a few client calls. "Heck, I can do that from the river bank," Im thinking "...so Im going fishing!"

So what happens? I get in the truck this morning, press in the clutch pedal and SNAP! It lets go with a sickening feel and goes right to the floorboard. The damn actuator arm broke clean off.

First thing out of my mouth - "Summbitch - there goes Friday's fishing!!"

 

The truck can be fixed, but I cant get a…
