Help!

Ok so I am running into a snag here that I haven't been able to readily solve at my local international dealer. I have my engine reinstalled after being overhauled, and the old Allison is out. I'd like to avoid custom fabricating a mechanical clutch linkage but finding the part number to try to find the appropriate parts is tough. Out west there a 20 different junk yards I know well that I would go and pick from, but out here on the east
Coast I'm lost! Help! Im in Pittsburgh and I need to know where old trucks/buses go to die out here, haha. Seriously if anyone knows where I might be able to find older
Rigs I can pull pedals/linkages from id be so grateful

Converting from an Allison to manual? Why not consider a hydraulic clutch, if one is available for your trans?

Thankyou Cadillac, this guys yard is a gold mine. He's got everything I spent weeks searching for in one
Place! DOH! I wish I found him a month ago, that's what I get for not asking for help until I'm desperate. I think his name is actually Wendell. Last name Paul.
