Question about 1990 Ford F150
Sounds like your pressure head springs are weak. Has the clutch and pressure head ever been replaced? If not I would say this is most likely the problem.

Under the dash look to see if there is a spring attached to the petal or maybe under the hood. Or you might have something getting in the was of the petal arm. Good Luck and PEACE

Does your clutch feel soft or spongy ? Not sure if it would have a slave cylinder on that model or not ? if so there should be a reservoir under the hood for fluid, check and see, if so add some brake fluid and see if that works. Could also be a bent fork which has come off the throw out bearing.

The only adjustment is for the pedal itself. There is a master cylinder at the top of the pedal that makes the pressure which travels thru the metal line to a rubber hose to a metal line which goes to the slave cylinder which is what actually pushes the clutch rod in the transmission. Sounds to me like your problem is in the Master cylinder part. It is like the brake master cylinder, there is a rod with rubber cups on it, and it sounds like the edges of the cup folded over backwards and hung up inside the cylinder, when you forced the pedal back up they folded back the right way, and now they are **** up a little making them not want to push as easy. This problem will happen again, so You better start pricing a new clutch master cylinder. From what I saw while researching this It looks like you can buy the master and slave cylinder as a set. If any pieces of the master cylinder rubber cups came off during this they may work their way thru the system to the slave cylinder and cause problems there as well. The reason behind thinking its the master and not the slave is, if it were the slave that hung up the pedal would have come back up since it has a spring on it.

I'm not sure but I believe the clutch pedal has a cable adjustment . usually its two nuts one on top of the other, hold one and turn the other until desire pedal is achieved.
However ,if its a hydralic clutch I'll let the shop manual give you the bad news. Your gonna need the Shop Manual any way because it will tell you how to adjust "pedal free play" which is what your describing.
First check that both fans WORK.How? Fabricate two jumper wires and remove the connectors from the fan(s)
one at a time and jump them from the battery one at a time. If they work ok if not replace the one that doesn't work.
Next find the coolant temperature sensor check it for resistance , wiring ,and to see if its signal is making it to the ECU. Then check if the ECU is telling the relays to turn on the appropriate fan. Remember one fan is for engine cooling the other is for the condenser of the a/c system. If you turn on a/c it should work.
Use shop manual for more detail testing and specs. I'll help you any way I can. Good luck

the clutch disc probably finally gave up,, replace it,, have the pressure plate surfaced if needed,check the fingers for any wear , if they have any replace this part .. replace the throw out bearing,, and your good to go
