1965 Falcon, 331, with 8.8 posi rearend. This car for the first 15 years was easy to push. My clutch spring fell off yeasterday and I had to push the car up the street to safety. It was painful, Straight line was OK but with the wheels turned it was almost inpossible. Any ideas??? Thanks.

if answer is no and you want it easy to push around a turn ... you know what you have to remove

One other theory is that you're a year older and not the superman you used to be. Me too, I've been in and out of the hospital for the last 5 day's and got 2 more to go. I'm bummed and only 44 for krikies sake!
what fe is saying is your out of shape.

Hahaha thanks guys, No it has only had the 8.8 for 5 years or so. Ok makes sence the posi makes it harder to push.

FE - Whats going on do you have kidney stones or something? If so I have had my fair share and one of them I had surgically removed. Lets just say I was pissing razor blades for a couple of days after. Hope you get rid of them quick and have good painkillers. Good luck.

Painful.... heh, that's not the half of it.

I've been SHOT, STABBED, DRILLED, POKED, HAMMERED, SCREWDRIVERED (phillips, Regular and Torx), Rubber Mallet-ed, Transmissioned several times and even slapped on the ass by a guy that thought I was cute, but this damn DT is more painful than all of the above!

I'm fine though. :) I just like to cry like a baby when taking a crap. LMAO
