94 st clutch

OK, the truck has been running fine except for the clutch is now really soft and it almost falls to the floor. Cecked the fluid and it was low, filled it up but still not much of a clutch and I can barely shift. Can anyone please let me know what to trouble shoot or rplace? I was to head back to VA from PA tomorrow morning but...
Any help?

Thanks,
Mike

Slave or master cylinder seal on the clutch probably went. Before you know it, you will push the pedal down and it won't come back. Just replace the master and slave cylinders.

Is it peeing on your foot? You might not need both yet. I did a clutch job a year ago and bought the master and slave at the same time. The slave is still in a box on a shelf in the shop. You will have no problem driving it wherever you want as long as you keep the fluid full. Drove mine that way for three months.

Look for the leak and you will know if it's the master or slave. Even if it fails you can drive without a clutch so I'd get home before trying to do anything about it. Good luck.

Sometimes the slave will leak into the bell housing and leave no trace of a leak. If you are do'n one....do them both hence the new found pressure of the new part will almost cause the counterpart to go out soon. Look for leaks and if you don't find any then bleed the snot out of it and see if you get pedal back. When these things sit for awhile they seem to loose pressure and all it needs is a bleeding.

Naaa. I probably will make it 5 more years without doing the other one.

I'm envious. You get to work on cool stuff. I keep a fleet of old F150s running all the time. I don't enjoy it much. I didn't realize there were people that own these things that don't know anything about cars and don't work on them. I'm in the the wrong business.

Thanks for all the info guys. Havent had access to a computer... I had fluid leaking down the cluth pedal so I did replace the master then tried to bleed it but nothing would come out of the bleeder so I replaced the slave as well and all seems to be good now but its difficult getting into gear and sometimes out. I suppose I need to adjust the nuts on the master....

Bench bleed first and try to set things like the old one ahead of time. You will get it. I knew someone was peeing on your foot.
