Don't take it to a mechanic
take it to an accredited brake and clutch specialist shop and have the jib done properly
if you know that you need to replace the clutch master cylinder then why you not had it done
as a point of good service it is best to replace both the master cylinder and slave cylinder if you want a trouble free job
find out what caused the push rod to break as that is an extremely rare fault --so rare that it never happens in normal operation

hi considering age of car and that you have no leaks on hydraulics? may i suggest you try bleeding the clutch to rid of old fluid a couple of pumps may be suffice ? b/fluid does absorb moisture and heat over time hence recommendation tat fluid be changed at period specified in handbooks ie 12 monthly ?

SOURCE: a new clutch, slave cylinder,
Have you checked that the slave cylinder is attached firmly where it's supposed to be? Have you refilled the bowl of the master cylinder with braking fluid? And finally have you bled the circuit thoroughly after that?

SOURCE: clutch pedal goes to floor
It sounds like you need to bleed the system there should be a fitting on to slave cylinder near the fluid line you need two people one to push the pedel and one to open and close the bleederYou need to get all of the air out of the system check to see if you see fluid leaking anywhere in the whole system because if fluid is leaking out air is leaking in and you will never get all of the air out of the system put a clear tube on the fitting and put the other end in a clear plastic bottle like a soda or water with some brake fluid in it thats what you use for the chuch system hope this helps

SOURCE: the clutch pedal sticks to
check the slave if its leaking fluid. take off the bellows boot. if fluid leaks out, its bad. Pressure from the system usually pushes the pedal back up unless you dont have all the air bled out of the system.
