Hi

Can't leave a fellow engineer hanging! It sounds like you diagnosis is correct, I can only assume this has a fluid clutch, if so it sounds like there could be air in the system. There is no adjustment, so the only other things it could be are, broken or worn parts, wrong throwout bearing. Not too much to them, but I have had a terrible time getting one to work properly once upon a time. I will go through the manual and see what I can find, if anything further comes up I will post it.

Than sounds like the best thing, they could have it fixed quickly with a shop and tools, use your spare time to enjoy home, not fix the truck.

God Bless You,

Paul

Kinda late here but your clutch slave cylinder is shot. There is no adjustment or serviceability on these things. BTDT. So you will just have to buy a new one and install it. Maybe an hour. Not to bad. It's kind of stupid though because there is no adjustment whatsoever. Mine engages right at the bottom so you have to keep that pedal right on the floor otherwise you are slowly burning the clutch.

pilot bearing frozen? That would keep a lot spining.

BTW, thank you for serving and glad you are home.

I know this is a long shot but check the little plastic bushing that the clutch pedal and the master cyl. push rod are connected through. 2 weeks ago this little bushing slipped off and I thought I lost my clutch, but it was just the bushing! I replaced the bushing and now the clutch pedal has no play in it and the clutch grabs higher on the pedal!

Thank you for your service
