I don't know squat about the ZF6, but I think there's a plastic piece that likes to break in clutch linkage (shift fork maybe?)... Either that or c'mon, you have 246K on the truck. The clutch has to go out eventually.

Are you sure you've cured the original problem though..... (a bad slave AND clutch failure would be unlikely at the same time)

The slave can be a Bitc h to bleed, get someone else to work the clutch pedal while you watch the fork. Make sure you've got full throw and it pivots with pressure not just moves-back.

The best way I've found to get a good bleed on the slave cyl is to force fluid In from the bleeder and Up to the master (the air then works With you by rising as it wants to anyway)
