Sounds as if clutch has died. Replacement requires removal of either the trans or the engine and resurfacing of the flywheel, so some special tools are needed and a good torque wrench. Buy a shop manual for complete procedure.
There is a pin that connects the clutch pedal to the clucth master cylinder. It sounds like this pin fell out. It is just a matter of lining up the hole in the master cylinder with the connector off of the clutch pedal. Push the pin in and install a new cotter pin to secure.
The clutch has rusted to the flywheel drive the truck down the road you will have to start it in gear (1st) while driving push the clucth pedal to the floor and keep pushing up and down on the gas pedal to get the truck to rock forwards and backward the clutch should brake loose.
If this is a manual transmission the clutch has burned out, it may need to be replaced, if you do not do your own mechanic work I would suggest that you take it to a good local repair shop and have them check it out. If this is an automatic I would still suggest the same, but the actual problem could be more complex. Hope this helps, let me know.
To determine which type of clutch you have, servo hydraulic or cable.
Look down past the engine bell housing and determine the existance of a hydraulic clutch slave cylinder.(a piece of casting with a rod facing towards the rear of the vehicle pocket into a bracket protruding out of the gearbox bell housing. As well as a pipe and bleed nipple to be crude)
(which I believe you have).The hydraulic fluid for this unit is sourced from the brake master cylinder reservoir via a sneaky pipe partially obscured to the clutch master cylinder on the internal firewall.If you have no clutch slave cylinder near the bell housing there would be an obvious bounden cable running from the firewall down to the outer of which will be stopped at a bracket hanging off the engine.The inner will continue to a bracket protruding from the gearbox bell housing.
ok if the clutch is vivrating then the clutch assembly is not good you need to replace it, unfortunatelly the clucth might cost you
almost as much as a new or rebuilt compressor except to you if
you want to replace either or, but if you want to save some money go to a place where they specialize in a/c and ask to buy a used clutch, but if you don't know how to replace it then have some one do it for you, but if you know little be about mechanic you should be hable to do it your self, just se the gap between the front side of clutch to the compressor pulley and try to leave about the same gap when you installed the way todjust the gap is very simple just add ar remove washers between cluch and shaft
