Welcome to the forums Steve!

Are you pushing the clutch all the way to the floor? At what point does the clutch start to grab when you take off?

Yes, I think I miss spoke my problem. The truck will Start to turn over and then it seems that the clutch is not in the right position for it to start. I can work the clutch a little and make it start or I can push start it no problem. Check battery seems fine. Thanks for your help

I believe that if you look under the dash, the arm that the clutch pedal is on specifically, you will find a switch that is activated by the movement of that arm. The purpose of that switch is to ensure that the clutch pedal is fully depressed before the starter can engage, so that is where I would start.

You can test your existing clutch switch with a multimeter to see if it is defective or not. I bypassed mine with a paper clip to get by for a while. Unplugged it, made a U shape with a paper clip, and stuck it in the harness connection for the switch so that it thinks the clutch is in all the time.

Note that this bypasses the safety feature... and why you have the clutch switch in the first place. .. so that you can't start the truck unless your foot is on the clutch!
