Have never seen a B series with an air assist clutch myself. Post some photos of this setup.

Wondering iF the truck you are looking at has a "Monoshift" transmission? If so it is not an air clutch but rather an air cylinder that operates the rear compound of the transmission. There would be a single shifter with a flipper valve on the stick. The clutch pedal is fully depressed to the floor to allow the air circuit to operate the cylinder shifting the compound. I think those transmissions were trdl-7225.
