Guess I'm going to be layed up for awhile. Been fighting Lymphadema in my legs for a couple years now,got the right one pretty well under control but the left one been fighting me. Jammed a piece of angle iron into it this summer and had to get sewed up,but it didn'tever want to heal clear up, kept leaking just a little every once in awhile. I could usually control the swelling with compression wraps,but lately it ain't worked,got to hurting really bad and turned nice bright red,went to ER got infection in the damn thing now. Bout ready to cut the SOB off.

I was thinking that yesterday by the time I got home. Tried to plan where I never had to come to a complete stop,driving like I had no clutch,worked pretty good except for loading and unloading. Had to lean right and pick my leg up by hand to use clutch.

Mike - BTW I did some research on the interweb...Gunilla is 69 and not too shabby for her age...Misty Rowe is 62 and looks good too.

I have a bad left knee so what I did was install a air cyl by a pull chain controlled by air small push button type air valve on the stick and a pilot valve to the cyl.The air supply goes thru a regulator fist and I have it set to were it will only take aa few lbs of foot force to push it down. Then when down you release the button and let the clutch out with your foot. When I got use to it its as natural as putting my foot on the clutch.This is a superliner with a easy pedtal clutch also but hard to push.I have a CH and its not that hard to push.
