I've got 82k on my truck and don't know if the clutch/brake fluid has ever been changed before. I know both take dot3 fluid, i dont have abs or anything. But I'm not quite sure how to go about draining and putting new fluid in. Is there a write up somewhere? also what brand fluid is best?

Get something like the Motive power bleeder. I have one and it makes the job cake.

I second the Motive power bleeder. I used it when I last flushed my brakes (I've flushed them twice since I've had the truck) and it made the job so much easier. Basically you want to bleed all the old fluid out of the lines, so if the old fluid is dirty, just keep bleeding until you see the fluid becomes clear and you are done. Start with the brake line farthest from the master cylinder and finish with the closest, then bleed the LSPV.

The clutch is a bit tougher, so you might have to do that manually, but as long as you keep fluid in the reservoir, its a fairly simple job.
