    I'm looking at a 66 Dodge pick up that is a standard. From the picture I was sent it looks as though it has two master cylinders. The guy is telling me it is a factory hydraulic clutch.

    What day you guys.

    Unfortunately this picture doesn't show it real well.

    Yep, I once owned 63 Dodge D100 with 4speed. It had a hydraulic clutch. Always worked fine for the year I had the truck.

    Inboard is brake master, outboard is clutch master. Yes, it's a hydraulic system.

    I would think more on the 3/4 and /or 1 ton types but I'll defer to those who know more than I on the subject. I had a 97 Dakota, 5.2, 4WD & 5 speed, it had a hydraulic clutch, never a problem and still had the original clutch after 200k + miles. Then my son drove it another 40-50k until the frame gave out.

    Many Mopar mechanical clutches have been converted to hydraulic by using the Dakota system.

    He's tell me it's an original hydraulic clutch truck. I thought that it would've been mechanical.

    My Dad had a '62 Chevy half-ton, 6 cylinder 4-speed. Had a hydraulic clutch.

    My '03 Dakota, V-6 5-speed was hydraulic as well.

    My 70 D-200 had a mechanical clutch, I was told the earlier years were hydraulic, I do not know the changeover year.

    I should add to my earlier post that my 63 D100 with 4 speed and hydraulic clutch, was powered by a slant 6 for what it’s worth.

    I posted this because I was expecting it to be manual. I knew that newer cars have hydraulic clutches, my 96 Cherokee has one.
