Hard getting in gear

I have 2001 350 with 6 speed today I was coming off intersate
77 and pedal went to floor . Had it happen before in other trucks but it's kind of a eye opener everytime . I was able to add fluid and make it a few miles
Finnaly blowed the seals in front of advanced auto parts on hwy52 .
I bought a new slave cylinder & master cylinder and installed them in center
lane of 52 couldn't never get a real good pedal but was able to move on to my delivery . Truck will go in 2nd-6th with clutch pushed in . I can only get
1st and rev. after I pump pedal a couple times . I have since pulled slave cylinder and held it above the master cylinder and push rod in to try and expell all air . It is still difficult to get in 1st . Any suggestions ? I would have bought the ford assembly but it was out of stock Don't know about driving
700 miles back home pumping a clutch pedal . Any suggestions would be apprerciated .

Probably still have air in the system. I always bench bled my clutch masters. Then I go to the bleeder on the slave (assuming there is one right there, never wokred on a Ford manual trans), and open the bleeder, have someone push the pedal to the floor and hold it, close the bleeder, then do the whole process over again until you have a decent pedal, or a solid stream of fluid, then bleed like usual . Don't forget to keep checking that the master cylinder is full

The 2001's don't have bleeder screws , it would be nice though.
This whole unit is plastic except the roll pins and end fittings .
Don't know about bench bleeding one might could be done on this style ?
I was in middle of road changing parts only wanted a pedal then .
Now that I'm in wally world parking lot a "proper pedal would be nice .
