So much great stuff in here. Here's what I am thinking: When I get home, I will adjust the pedal play, take a second look at the master cylinder level and make sure we have enough fluid; this should hopefully fix my reverse issue (based on what Mike and Wayno have said, it seems to be that the clutch just isn't quite disengaging all the way).The transmission doesn't make any of the stated growling or whining noises, but when it does, it will most likely be the front countershaft bearing, which in my B series is 62 mm because it is a later one. Does anyone have a source for bearings for the B transmission? It seems as though every transmission rebuild website I go to thinks that my truck has a 71C transmission.

The clutch was changed at around... ah, I don't have my book of records on me but I want to say that it was changed at 135,000, and there are a little over 141,000 miles on the truck. When we changed the clutch we changed the transmission oil, and I believe we used Redline 50305 MT-90 75W90 GL-4 (according to my Amazon account). After we changed the clutch we put a new master and slave in, bleed it properly, ect... I may have to adjust the pedal play because I like the clutch to operate right at the bottom of the pedal actuation so I do not have to move my foot so much; maybe that is what is causing the issue. When I get back to the US I will double check all of the fluids (even though I do it every time I fill up for gas). 

In Topic: Blower not pushing air through the vents

Maybe your air passages aren't lined up from blower to AC to Heater. Do you feel any air moving under the dash on the passenger side? That is an indication that those parts may not have a perfect seal on each other, which would really reduce the speed of the air coming out of the vents. Does your blower motor work on all settings?

Yea, I would also leave it alone, drive it the way it is with a smile on your face, find another cheap one to play with.

Right there with you. My 720 made me realize it is a lot more fun to drive a slow car fast than a fast car slow.
