Also, I will be replacing that thermostat this week just for good measure. Not that I am afraid of the pressure caused by overheating cars or anything....

BTW the fan should be blowing hard at a hot idle, if it isn't then the clutch is probably bad. Check Rockauto or eBay for a deal on a replacement clutch.

Then it is usually a simple matter of matching up the wire colors. It is an easy swap. I was going to suggest that it was the throw out bearing. Sounds like it was. Man that was a close call on the heater core! I never had had one go out but have several in reserve when one does. If you decide to replace the exhaust make sure you oversize it to 2.25. These trucks are choked up from the factory for breathing. Another quick way to open it up is to flip the air filter cover. Some of us have replaced the intake with an oversized one and a bigger throttle body. It will give a few more HP. Just keep asking the questions. We do our best to give answers.
