It does seem odd that with the truck in gear, you are able to start the engine and it does not cause the truck to move. Did everything work before you refilled the clutch reservoir?
Thanks, Ricardo. I bought the truck as-is, so I don't know how well it was all put together. Supposedly he had a brand new Centerforce installed when the body was removed and the undercarriage was sandblasted.
