Question about 1991 Ford F250
Yes. A worn clutch will slip when shifting or under heavy load. And, I would guess that a manual 1991 is probably past due for a clutch job. It will not get any better. This is a heavy job but doable if you have a strong friend and some tools. In addition to a hand full of sockets and end wrenches, you will need a transmission alignment tool that aligns the clutch plate with the pilot bearing in the fly wheel as you bolt on the pressure plate.
Get a box of band aids
What is involved? Drop the drive shaft (easy). Unbolt the transmission and rear motor mount (simple but not easy). Have a bottle jack under the engine to maintain that alignment. Unbolt the pressure plate - pretty simple. Be ready to grab it before it falls upon you or your friend. Remove the flywheel for resurfacing - (very difficult). Most full service auto parts supply houses can refinish the fly wheel - the process is called "cutting". You should also replace the throw-out bearing while you are at it.
Bust your knuckles on the 10th bolt - apply band aid.
Replace the newly refinished fly wheel - easier than removal (get advice on removal at the auto parts place). Buy a reconditioned pressure plate for your vehicle. Get a new Clutch plate. Get the alignment tool (looks like the transmission input shaft and aligns the shaft with the clutch plate splines and the flywheel pilot hole. torque all bolts to specs (ask at the auto parts place).
Move the transmission into place and bolt it together. Observe tightening order and torque. Bust knuckles on the other hand - apply band aid.
reinstall the drive shaft. - drop it on your friends leg
remove the little bottle jack
Take tool inventory
Return the clutch plate and pressure plate for core.
Expect to pay about $250.00 for parts, including the band aids
