    I would try the hydraulic kit. Clutch can be pushed in with two fingers with it installed. Also, I had a staff infection in my elbow....almost lost the arm. My father in law had knee replacement...very successful, but they only last 5-10 years.

    My 85 year old mother just had a full knee replacement done about 3 months ago. Amazing results and she was previously bone-on-bone in bad, bad pain.

    BTW, Mike, it all comes down to the quality of the surgeon and, of course the hospital. That can present logistical problems, however, due to the post-op hospital stay (1-2 weeks) and then the 2-4 mos. of rehab.

    [QUOTE=Navigator; Within the last two months one lady who I knew well since high school died from a staff infection that settled in her knee while another guy I didn't know so well met the same end. A friend of ours is now in the hospital for the same thing and whether he lives or not is still up in the air...[/QUOTE]

    Wow! My mother-in-law died from an infection she got while undergoing double knee surgery. Scary shit!
    The beatings will continue until Morale improves. Arrgh!

    It's OK if you guys think that I'm a type A personality or too tightly wrapped, but you are driving me nuts using a homonym for the staphylococcus bacteria.
