clutch problem

I recently had a new "clutch kit" installed in my 2001 F250. Worked fine following. Suddenly, I have to push the clutch almost to the floor to get it to release. Actually had to move my seat up! Any ideas.

"quote from tank"
"I use baby wipes.....


Because if you think that a wadded up piece of paper is actually getting the chit off of your butt.....then I have to ask a question....

.....if you wiped a turd on your arm....would you just use a paper towel to get the turd off?.....or would you wash your arm?...


...let that thought roll around in your head for a moment...


" thank you tank for that insightful thought

I had a similar problem on my OBS. My clutch wasn't fully disengaging when i had it on the floor. It was some kind of pin on the firewall, where the pedal connected that was worn out. However, i don't know if it would be a similar problem in your super duty.

Did you check the bushing on top of the pedal? There's a little plastic bushing that the rod connects to, they are like $5. I've replaced them on mine before, maybe it's making your have less throw of the rod from the slop?

I don't know, just an idea.

Well, just got off phone with Ford dealership. "Sounded like slave cylinder or master cylinder" is what they said. Any advice?
