Help please. Clutch/throwout bearing advice.

Ok I just got my 74 REPU and the two things that stop it from actually running (Drivable) are 1) Flat tire. No problem and

2) Clutch situation. First, does anyone have a diagram of the clutch assembly? Here is the situation. The clutch is stuck disengaged. Plenty of fluid, Master and slave cylinders operational. It is something internal. Fork, rust on throwout bearing? Anyone else have similar sitation and if so what was the resolution. I just want to have the upper hand when i have a tranny mech look at it cause I dont have lots of tranny exp and i dont have a shop :-(

I hope to bring as much as i can to this forum. I have great respect for the truck and am honored to join the ranks! :-)

Stuck disengaged...???

So in other words, it's as if you have no clutch disc, or no pressure plate... or it's all the way worn-out and slips non-stop, correct?
If you can verify the hydraulics still functioning 100%, I'd just get under there and pull the tranny and see what falls out, or not...
An oil-soaked clutch might be more likely than a rust problem...
Just make sure you have some plastic bags and rubberbands handy, so that when you pull the driveshaft out the back of the transmission, you can keep your gear oil mostly where it belongs!
Sometimes the clutch slave cylinder's apparent vs. actual fuctioning is deceptive... the actuating rod that comes in most kits I recall is a different length than the original... might this be part of the problem?
Welcome to the boards, Rob, and good luck!
