Chevy C10 Clutch

I have a 1986? Chevy C10 custom with hydraulic clutch.
On a recent trip I stopped to make a left turn. Waited for oncoming traffic and then proceeded to release the clutch and make my left turn.


Clutch feels normal, shifter feels normal, no strange noises.
It is as if the 4WD transfer case slipped into neutral, or the Drive shaft snapped. Nothing in FWD either. I do not see anything unusul under the truck.

Any Idea what went wrong?

I am thinking the hub on the clutch has broken or the input shaft of the transmission has snapped or the clutch has lost all of the compound and it can no longer transmit engine power into the transmission.

Since you can shift the transmission without it grinding this tells me the input shaft is not turning. Try shifting gears without stepping on the clutch. I am thinking you will be able to shift it with no problem.

If you have an inspection cover take it off and look in to see what you can see.

Bottom line the transmission needs to come out.

like a brake master.. there is a drilled hole that lets the hyd fluid out of the slave..
when dirt gets in the hole, it doesn't let the chutch release..
break loose the bleader, if the engine is now connected to trans, it's dirt in the slave..
