'99 7.3 6spd weird clutch issue

alright i recently bought a 99 7.3 6spd 250 with around 166000 miles on it. truck runs solid except for one thing. when every thing is at operating temp my clutch/trans starts acting funny. it seems as though the clutch isnt disengaging fully, especially when towing or in heavy stop and go traffic. it gets really hard to get it in or out of R,L, and 1st. also if i've got it in those gears with the clutch pedal to the floor the truck will still pull forward and it will shake slightly while the break is applied. the clutch was supposedly brand new when i bought it, and should be well past the normal break in period. its got plenty of hydraulic fluid in the clutch reservoir and i havent spotted any leaks. any idea's or help would be appreciated.

Hydraulics failing or the clutch fork is slightly bent.
