there is a bleeder screw by the transmission slave cylinder that you bleed the air out.just pump the clutch pedal a few times hold the pedal to the floor and have someone crack open the bleeder screw to bleed the air out then close it and repeat.make sure the master cylinder for the clutch doesn`t go low.
open the bleed screw on the slave cylinder ,whilst a good looking long legged assistant push the clutch pedal down and you open the bleed screw..If this still doesnt work then check the clutch arm trhow and see how much its moving ,could be you need a new master cylinder
The trans will need to come out. While your at it, just replace the clutch assembly, rear main oil seal, resurface the flywheel, and the clutch master cyl. Its not really a job you should do, find a repair shop to handle it.
Your clue is probably that when you pump the clutch twice that it works. I don't know about the 83's but the 96 or so on up have automatic clutch adjustment & when the clutch is worn out that part will not adjust anymore and will create the problem, just like th 97 that i have & haven't changed the clutch yet... (too lazy - waiting for it to totally quit before i fix it) So my guess is that if you haven't changed the clutch, pressure plate t/a bearing stuff, you may need to do that. Ford guys should have told you that.... hope this helps, rick
It's not the clutch, it is the clutch slave cylinder. Check the fluid level in the clutch master cylinder and you will see that it will be empty. The problem is the trans has to be removed to replace it.
