NAS D90 Clutch/Transmission Question

I have a '94 D90 with the 5 speed manual transmission (1st owner replaced the original 4 speed before I bought it in '97). Last week the clutch started to feel light (not the typical push back from the spring), and it became progressively more difficult to put it in gear until finally, the clutch pedal lies flat to the floor and the only way I can get it in gear is when the engine is off.

Any thoughts?

Probably a leak of clutch fluid. Look in the reservoir and see if it is empty. Then look for the leak at the bellhousing drain and below the pedal in the cab.

Funny how the weather cools, the seals shrink and you know it is fall due to all the failing clutch posts.
On a side note you know it is fall in Arizona when the license plates change colors. I'm starting to see some of John B's driving challenged neighbors making their way south. Next up are the Minnesota plates followed by the Wisconsin plates and then the Canadian geese show up and crap everywhere. It still beats shoveling snow!

Clutch fluid heaters would fix this issue.

Original Transmission in a '94 D-90 should have been a 5-speed as well, but it was the LT-77, later D90's had the R380.

Anyway, definitely sounds like a Clutch Master, search for the threads on the fun that is changing them out..
