Question about 1991 Ford F150
After spending 14 years upside-down on my head to loosen the two nuts to get it to move, the plastic barrel-thingy (neutral safety switch doohickey?) on the pushrod keeps it from going through the firewall, and I can't figger out how to get the ****** to come apart. Please help! I used to work on planes in the Air Force and a plastic part is making me want to scream!
Never worked on one of these ,not many gas guzlers to the pound here in spain.suggestion with a nice pair of snap on circlip pliars with 90% bend on tips cant you pull it back enough to remove the circlip on the end ...well maybe not probaly cant get them in ???What about the push rod shaft ,will the yoke come off the end ??unscrew it or hook and turn .when iam stuck like this i just think of how did i do it on the assembly line 40yrs ago,go down local bar have a coffee chat up the woman behind the counter then come back wave hammer no 3 at it and try again

There is a clip on the round end of the push rod. It is clipped on the brake pedal. it goes with the master cylinder out of the firewall. And the harness and connector for the neutral safety slides on lil teath, but it pops off pretty easy. It is a cheesy design but its 50 bucks for another one and you cant purchase the push rod by itself. Gentle is the word.

Fig. Fig. 1: Block the clutch pedal to prevent slave cylinder damage, should the pedal be depressed while the cylinder is removed from the transaxle
Fig. Fig. 2: To remove, rotate the slave cylinder about 1/4 turn counterclockwise while pushing toward the bell housing
Fig. Fig. 3: This plastic retaining strap must remain on the slave cylinder to ensure proper seating of the actuator rod against the release fork
Fig. Fig. 4: Rotate the clutch master cylinder about 1/8 turn clockwise and remove it from the instrument panel
HYDRAULIC SYSTEM BLEEDING The clutch hydraulic assembly has been filled with fluid and bled of air at the factory. Do not attempt to bleed the hydraulic system. While the unit does not require periodic checking, it must be serviced, when necessary, as a complete assembly. The system is full when the reservoir is half full.
Only DOT 3 brake fluid should be added to the system. If the fluid level drops, inspect the system, including the slave cylinder, for leakage. A slight wetting of the slave cylinder surface is normal. Fill the clutch master cylinder reservoir with brake fluid. Be careful not to spill brake fluid on the painted surface of the vehicle.
