6 spd Clutch Problems

Hello everybody, I'm new to the site and I have a huge question for you.

I just bought a 2000 7.3 with the 6 spd and the clutch won't disengage. You can put the clutch peddle to the floor but when you crank it over the starter moves the truck and keeps it moving till it actually starts up and then it drives fine but you have to power shift it with no clutch. There is no clutch slippage or wierd noises from it at all. Could my problem be as simple as a slave cyl.?

Slave or Master cylinder. I'd replace both if you're going to do one of them though

Question: what is the assumption that both are bad?

My master was fine, slave was leaking internally. $46 part vs $150-200. Sure it took a little time to bleed but it wasn't bad by any means.

Just the way I would do it. If one fails, the other is probably not far behind

Buy the prebled assembly from Ford. Buying the master or slave cylinder seperate is not a good idea. They are prone to failure, like stated above if one is gone the other is not far behind. I replaced a slave cylinder for a buddy and it was a pain to bleed. I replaced mine last year with the whole prebled assembly, 10 minute job.

agreed, if they are sold as a pre-bled assembly, its worth it just not to have the mess on the shop floor. LOL
