    1. sorry to inform you but the pressure plate and throwout bearing are probably fried. when you replace it insist on a Hayes, it is cheaper than stock in price only, and has 25% more holding power. hopefully you caught it in time to only have the flywheel resurfaced. good luck

    3. its burnt the clutch and pressure plate up in it ,when one is under a heavy load and in a higher gear its puts strain on the clutch,you,ll be pulling the transmission out of that one to replace it with,if you have it done by a shop your looking at about 800 bucks,maybe more.good luck with it.

    5. If you’re going to get a clutch for your truck get a Southbend Clutch. They’re the only ones to go with for a Cummins!
