You will need the bracket replaced, no quick fix to do that. Go to a salvage yard and find one there. Cause? Metal fatigue on this 18 year old car.

    Aluminum can be welded, but you need a really good welder to do it, I'd suggest you ask around.

SOURCE: clutch pedal stays 2 the floor on a hydralic

Did you bleed the system? When you replace the the master and/or slave cylinder you have to bleed the system just as you would with brakes. There is a bleed screw on the slave cylinder. Open the bleed screw, have a helper depress and hold the clutch pedal down.Tighten the bleed screw, then release clutch. Repeat this procedure until you have removed all air from the system and the clutch pedal is firm. Keep an eye on the fluid level to avoid sucking air into the system. If you have done this, remember there is a possibility that the master or slave cylinder is defective.

SOURCE: We have installed a new clutch kit, flywheel,

Well it sounds like you have done the right thing like replacing the lot not just a centre platr BUTwhat you have done by the sound of it if you push in the clutch and the g/box just grinds and wont look like going in then your problem is that you have the CENTRE plate around the wroug way as the part with the springs etc have to go into the pressure plate housing ASyou have it its jamed up on the bolts on the Flywheel
TAKE it off change it around and away you go But make sure you have bleed the clutch and it should drive 1" off the floor and if so then you have done a good job...Let me know how you go Ron

Where is the slave cylinder located on a 1982 Ford F 150 with a straight in line v6

I believe you are looking for a master cylinder. A slave cylinder would be on the wheel if talking brakes. If talking clutch, a slave cylinder would be on the bell/flywheel housing between the motor and tranny. The master cylinders for either brakes or clutch would be on the firewall under the hood directly in front of the drivers side.

Hello i have a 1993 chevy cheyyenne k1500 pickup with a v6 4.3 its a manual and my clutch line broke off of my slabe cylinder due to a crack in it from ware and tear which leaked fluid all out and lost...

I changed the slave cylinder on my 97 Accord and all I did was disconnect the lines, disconnect the linkage from the pedal, move some stuff to get it out, hook up the new one, fill with fluid, and bleed the line to the clutch cylinder. Point is, if you have to remove the slave cylinder, that's fine. You'll have to bleed the system anyway. Like bleeding brakes. I didn't have to drain any "tranny fluid" as the clutch fluid was a separate system. Had a drain pan underneath to catch fluid.

My problem is that the manual transmission is stuck in 4th gear. I was backing up when I went to put it into 1st the shifter was stuck. The clutch works to disengage the gears but the shifter won't...

That cylinder is known as the clutch slave cylinder. It should push against the clutch fork every time the clutch pedal is depressed to allow gear changes. If it doesn't, suspect a faulty slave cylinder, or clutch master cylinder.

Have the clutch checked first by a mechanic you trust-perhaps a small shop with a good reputation. The clutch could just be worn out. If the clutch checks out okay, then he will want to check the tranny itself next.

Good luck to you and Thank you for using Fix ya!
