you sure your clutch isnt bad?
11-03-2009, 12:51 PM

hmm idk thats wierd..never heard of anything like that

Im not sure how yours works but check to see if that spring is flipping over properly? On my 95 there is a spring assist thing. I just rebuilt my whole pedal assembly and it made a huge difference. The am that actually disengages the clutch could also be worn.

this happened to me quite awhile ago when i bought my truck. the guy that i bought it from said there was a new clutch in it, then it started acting like that, i dropped the transmission to check the clutch out and whoever had done the work didnt know $hit. they put the clutch in backwards, dont ask me how you do that but i would say look at your clutch.

Air in the system.............can be a b!tch to get out. The best way is to put the system under a vacuum to draw the air out, via air lift, or hand held vacuum pump. But you can bleed it the old fashion way but it can take forever.

yeah ive looked and i dont think there is a spring like that its a real simple set up just cant get it to work!...well i sure hope it it isnt my clutch gone bad how do you think a clutch would cost for it?....and yeah there maybe still is air in the line because it sure is a bitch to bleed it

Well the spring assist part is part of the pedal assembly. If you disconnect the slave master from the pedal assembly you will see what im talking about. If its disconnect and you push the clutch pedal a little the pedal will shoot to the floor because of this spring that rolls over.

i dont think mine has a spring like that but ive came to conclusion that i think that theres just alot of air in the line now how to get it out?

Well you can do it manually with a friend or buy/borrow a mity vac and suck the fluid out. You can get them for 20-30 bucks.

where can i get one of those at?
11-07-2009, 07:16 PM
Autozone or oreilleys...Harbor freight carries them as well I think. They are very handy if you normally work on your ride by yourself...

7.3 diesel check your clutch rod linkage under the dash.There is a plastic bushing that can wear out and will cause the problem you describe.Also if the bushing wears out and you dont catch it in time the metal ends will get wollered out and youll have a bigger problem. There are alot of threads on this subject you just need to use the search function.The plastic bushing is only a few dollars but there is a permanant fix that is sold on ebay for $40.

You can tell if your bushing are worn by pushing the brake and clutch at the same time, when pushing the brake the clutch pedal will "pop" up and vice-versa.

907 dave...thats from the entire pedal assembly bushings. Terrco was talking about the rod eye bushing. I just replaced all of mine...assembly and rod eye(I used the ebay fix myself). Gave me about another inch of clutch I would guess.
11-07-2009, 10:33 PM
Ok..I guess I misinterpreted it. Had the pedal assembly bushings wear out and the firewall crack on my OBS. That really messed up the pedal travel, and was a pain to repair.

mr terrco that was woren out before i replaced the pludger piece with the plastic bushing but the other piece that goes into the bushing is woren out and is wollered out could that be causing a problem?

Yeah those pedal assembly bushings gave me grief. I couldnt get the steering column to drop down.
