Oh boy we see your dilemma now!
That’s pretty tight space to work in.

Maybe removing or turning the front wheel might provide better access?!?

Interesting truck.

Like the Spoke Wheels, Wide Fenders and the Chrome package to boot.

As maybe noticed, I used to drive a '62 6500. It had the Dual Cluster, but no Tach in it. Just a dummy plate.

Must have a heavy Front Axle. What is the GVW on the truck?
Thanks, I will have to look at the plate on it but I believe it was around 22,000lbs.

I will give that a look but I believe it is on the inside of the frame rail next to the transmission. The inner fender would be in between the wheel and the slave from what I recall.

Pulled the floor access panels out today. Still not able to access the slave cylinder bolts easily. Thinking the best option is to remove the side transmission mount so I can get a socket on the slave cylinder bolts. Not a very serviceable part for this model!
