Question about Cars & Trucks
I know the regular sized Ford pickups had the slave cylinder inside the bellhousing, requiring transmission removal for replacement (not very smart, Ford!) So I suppose your Ranger, too, if you don't see the cylinder on the outside.; Most people who go through this replace the whole clutch and the slave cylinder at the same time, to avoid having to do it over again.

I had the same problem with my 1995 1500 p.u.. Assuming your clutch slave cylinder is the concentric style. If not disregard. I hate that set up. what the hell was wrong with the old outside of the bell housing slave/ mechanical style fork and throw out bearing bla bla? Its because ford as well of the rest of the lovely auto makers decided long ago to make them as hard as hell to repair on you own. Ive been told theres a spsecial tool just for this bleeding task. Pobably. They make those tools to sell to us so they can further profit from us poor suckers.Also I wonder on your model if its concentric, does it have the difficult sized bleeder valve as mine did? or have they gotten a little more user friendly? doubt it. In my case as this style is a closed system I followed the bleeding intructions to a tee. That did get alot more clutch action for me, after 15 attempts.However I do believe the problem after looking and further inspection under the dash? look up under the dash and inspect your pedal rack and frame. I found mine was cracked and the cause of poor aliegnment. check for that rite away. I located another rack but before I got around to replacing it, the tranny blew, and the trucks sitting on my dads property. Its still a danmed good truck and one of these days I will get on it again. Anyway up untill the tranny blew I was never able to get more than half the distance from the pedal and besides the rack problem I would love to know the bleeding anser, that is if Im off target. Going to be up against it again when I replace that transmission. Hope this helps a little. Food for thought maybe? If you find out something more helpful post it so I will know too.

Clutch & pressure plate assy complete replaced ? Same size? Was flywheel turned, or at least roughed up? Slave cylinder have any adjustment on it, maybe too tight. Is there any play between slave & clutch fork assy?

CLUTCH SLAVE CYLINDER IS IN THE TRANSMISSION GOING TO PRESSURE PLATE AND CLUTCH.YOU HAVE TO DROP TRANSMISSION TO GET TO SLAVE CYLINDER.IF CLUTCH IS LOOSE MAKE SURE BOLTS TO CLUTCH PRESSURE PLATE TO CLUTCH IS TIGHT.THAT COULD BE YOUR PROBLEM.

The easiest way to deal with this problem is to order the complete preblead slave cylinder kit.
You can, just go with a new slave cylinder but because of the age of the other parts. You may run into other problems down the road. Why have to do it twice.
To replace the slave cylinder only:
Its easy, just carefully push/remove the small metal pin that hold the plastic line to the slave cylinder. then push-in and turn counterclockwise, to remove slave cylinder. Then install new slave cylinder and reverse the procedure. Now bleeding the system will take a while. But all you will do is just keep pumping the clutch pedal until the pedal returns.
