the most common fault is what you have stated
clutch plate in back to front
the clutch plate hub hits on the flywheel bolt heads and the plate is still driven making 1st and reverse gears difficult to select without crunching them
with or without a clutch this vehicle should start so their is a problem somewhere as for the clutch push rod am i right in assuming that this is inside the cab ,sorry for my ignorance but never worked on one as yet so ?? at a loss but if you push it back in and clutch works leave well alon ,
You need to adjust your clutch rod since you replaced your clutch in order to make it release properly. They should have done this at the shop that did the work. Crawl under the truck and you'll see the clutch rod from the clutch pedal to the tranny's clutch fork arm. On that rod you will see a nut or maybe two, tighten both of them about four complete revolutions and your problem is fixed.
If the car hasn't been driven for a while it could be corrosion on the fork but I think that is unlikely. I think you are right about the release bearing being jammed in the spring. If the truck has quite high mileage, it probably means a clutch job.
Very top of the clutch arm,just like the brake light switch.One you pull the harness off you can jumper it with a paper clip or wire to see if this is you issue.Look up the part @ rockauto.com to get a idea of what you are looking for,or take a run to your local parts store.You can always return it as long as you have not installed it,but check with them first before buying.Looks like a rod might go thru it.
There are two types of clutch actuators. (Mechanical & Hydtraulic)
A. For mechanical type,- Check the clutch cable as
this could be cut from wear and tear. This is easy
to replace. You can find this connected to the
pedal and the clutch lever near the transmission.
B.For hydraulic operated - Check the level of the
hydraulic oil at the cylinder of the hydraulic
actuator under the hood. This actuator is
directly connected to the pushrod driven by the
pedal. If the actuator is leaking, you have buy
a repair kit (Hyraulic clutch repair kit for Ford
Ranger 1994 MOdel.) These items must be
repaired to activate your pedal.
Stop driving the car now! The clutch master cylinder has an adjustable pushrod, it is set up too long now. Take it back to where it was done and tell them if they don't know how to set up clutch free play, they shouldn't have attempted the job. This may have cost you a $3500. clutch job. Get it adjusted fast.
If it had 2 bolt studs with nut on the other end ando line going to the top of the transmission it is the slave cylinder and you have to line the rod inside to the fork inside the bellhousing if this is on the bleed the clutch cylinder and the pedal should return to normal. Be sure to check for leaks in this line even a little leak can cause you not to have a clutch pedal. Also check inside the cab behind the clutch pedal where the rod comes through the firewall and make sure it is not leaking. If the fluid is low be sure to fill it with DOT 3 brake fluid.
sounds like a fluke ! check the fluid on teh drivers side fire wall by the brake master clynder if its empty fill it with brake fluid and slowly pump teh clutch pedal up and down a bouch of times and you should get you're pedal and clutch back it this dosent work get back to me.
