The hydraulic cylinder is in the bell housing. When you separate the motor and tranny, you will see it as a unit with the throw-out bearing. Take the hydraulic line off before you start. You will have to bleed it when you are done.

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 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.

I believe the switch is under the dash near the top of the pedal arm, just take it off and put a new one in it's place.

It is not usually necessary to replace the slave cylinder. Remove the cylinder and wash in metho. Exmine it for rust, pitting or grooving. If ok scuff the glaze from the cylinder walls with 320 grit w&d paper and more metho. Wash well with metho dry and fit a new kit of rubbers. Lubricate these with brake fluid ot rubber grease as you assembe. Refit the slave cylinder and bleed out the air. Job done.
