that pops back onto the clutch. The little black plastic clip looks broken you can get a new one for super cheap.

Look at the clutch pedal you will see the thing sticking off the side where that goes on.

I thought the ball end of the rod just pushed into the Clutch Master Cylinder... Isn't the sensor spring loaded? I think it just pushes against the fire wall and stays there by spring pressure.

On my 97 that I had I used a spent shell casing for the bushing after breaking 3 of the plastic tabs. I can't remember the size casing that I used but just hammered it in there and it worked like a champ for years.

99 F350 CCLB 67k miles.

Sold: 01 Dodge cummins ECLB a few more mods to 353hp

Sold: 97 F250 SCLB, 5 speed 2wd. minor mods to 327hp

See a pattern? next I will have to find one of those 6 door jobbers...

You're missing a piece, well two pieces. On the end of that rod, the end that goes into the master cylinder there is supposed to be a little silver cap. That is what snaps into the master (maybe its still in the master). A Full circle C clip holds the domed piece, and usually the road into the master.

I'll take a picture this afternoon I happen to have a stock master I took apart.

Hard to tell from pictures but it looks like the domed piece that holds the rod is probably stretched, it's likely still in the master and if you take the Clip out of the master it'll pop out and then you can crimp it back on then put it and the clip back in. Good as new.

From what I can see you do not need a new assembly. He'll if it wouldn't take weeks to get to you I'd send you the extra rod I've got.

If the cap and clip are still in the master, really it should snap back in, that's how they are when you buy a new one. If you can't get it to pop in the socket may be damaged but that is replaceable (junkyard only I bet).

It may take some force to get it in, no he-man strength though

I'm hard to follow I know. I'll get a good picture this afternoon.

No need man i ended up going to the junkyard and luckily by some miracle there just happened to be the exact same truck as mine there and i tore the master cylinder apart and got that metal bushing that has the two flanged clips and the odd looking clip that goes in the eyelet side of that pin because that broke too when it shot back.

So basically the parts guy gave me the run around and told me you have to bleed the system after i do it and i told him thats not right and he gave me the line that another guy had the exact same problem a week ago and his tech told him that. BS!! you dont have to it just pops out and the new one goes back in.

Gotta love the greedyness/lack of knowledge of ford but gotta love junk yards because you can tear apart a truck without the worry of breaking your own
