If its just the master cylinder then there are 2 bolts and the lines and thats it. you might have to tap it a little do to rust or because it sticks over time. if its the master cylinder and the brake booster then you will have to disconnect the booster from the brake pedal on the inside

I have a 1988 f350 diesel i replaced the clutch master cylinder and the slave cylinder bled the lines and the truck still wont go in gear the throw out arm is moving about 1/2 inch what could be my prob

Ford has special bleeding and blocking instructions for clutch slave. Check manual for proper bleeding requirements. May consider presurre bleeding of master cylinder or use master cyclinder bleeding tubes that fill the resevoir as you bleed the and remove all air in system.

1995 ford powerstroke replaced rear brake pads,hardware, drums, and master cylinder after much bleeding it stops but at standstill with brake pedal pressed the pedal begins to drop

OK, did you bench bleed the master cylinder before installing? If not, the warranty will be void, and the pedal will drop even if the rest of the hydraulic system is sealed.
I would try another new master cylinder if the bench bleeding was not performed and the master cylinder was deemed to be damaged.

If the master cylinder was bench bled, and it does this, maybe you can get it replaced with a new one under warranty.

Good luck on this repair.

2005 ford f350 4*4 hard pull to left .I have

When you say it pulls to the left, I am assuming only when the brakes are applied. And if the pull problem was there before you replaced the calipers, it is a problem like a plugged primary brake line from the master cylinder or proportioning valve. The master cylinder could be bad. The new right caliper could be bad. Need to disconnect hoses closer to master cylinder and hit brakes to see if fluid flows good. Then follow hoses down and repeat.

If this happened after the new pads were put on sometimes the pad length is different on the inner and outer pad and both longs on one side will grip more than the 2 short pads on the other side.

If this pulls without brakes on you may have stuck left 4x4.

I have a 2000 mustang gt that I replaced the master cyl as well as the ABS mod no I am not geting any fluid coming out from the lines

Did you bench bleed the master cylinder? If not it probably has so much air in it, the piston on the master cylinder may have bottomed out in the bore. You may have to remove and do it over.

Is it a bad Slave Cylinder or a Master Cylinder on my 00 ranger?

Sounds like a slave cyl problem as usually if the master is bad you wont even be able to pump the pedal to get it to shift
