SOURCE: clutch will not disengage
Check the reservoir on the firewall near the master cylinder. If the reservoir is empty fill it with brake fluid and pump the clutch and bleed the air out on the side of the transmission.

It needs to be pressure bled, you can open the bleeder valve on the slave and remove the cap and push and hold the pedal down once, if it allows fluid to flow threw the bleeder port let it bleed about a pint of fluid to completely rid system with air. Remove the hose off the master clutch assembly and have someone press down on the clutch pedal to see it the master cylinder is pressurizing, if it does reconnect and keep trying. If not remove master and use a screwdriver to push piston on the master to see if fluid comes out. If it does not pressurize you have a bad master. this is a common problem. Also you could have a bad master cylinder or slave so start the procedure above and if it does not pressurize up pull slave off the truck and have it tested.

you should have a concentric slave cylinder more than likely, either it has come apart and leaking or it has not been bled properly. try opening the bleed port untill you get a flow of fluid. you must keep resivor full at all times. takes two people. once you get a good flow at bleed tighten bleed screw top of resivor and put cap on then depress clutch pedal to floorfor 4 seconds and release as fast as you can to the top then pause for a couple of seconds. do this 20 times then have some one apply moderate pressure to pedal and just barly open bleed port to release any air left in system. if this does not work replace the cylinder. i have gotten bad ones at the parts place. berrydalewolf.

the automatic clutch adjuster mechanism at the top of the pedal inside the cab is my first suspect before the clutch itself
