The previous owner of this Dodge Ram 3500 used it for pulling a large fifth wheel camper. One trip he blew the clutch and followed the advice of his mechanic to upgrade the clutch to a dual disc clutch setup. This worked out as he made many long trips after the upgrade.
When I purchased the truck, the throw out bearing was making some noise and I was starting to notice some syncro based issues causing some “clunking” when shifting into reverse. These symptoms plus a mild rear main seal leak and an oil pan link prompted me to get all of this fixed. The mechanic doing this work for me has a good clientele list of farmers and hay haulers who depend on these second generation Rams to get work done. I followed his advice which was going back to a single disc clutch but using a heavy duty Luk setup. I have included a few pictures from the before and after.
