Question about 1985 Ford F350
I'm sure you've checked the fluid level, I would first try bleeding the system to rule out any air pockets. It also could be a fluid bypass situation, especially if the master/slave are old or the cup seals have been exposed to contaminated fluid. The seals can become hardened over time and will not expand along with their respective bore when hot. The cure for that is replacement of the clutch master cylinder and/or slave. The master cylinder is a fairly easy task, but the slave cylinder requires removal of the transmission. Bleeding this system can be frustrating, but you should be able to find plenty of information about the process around the web. Good luck.

the torque convertor clutch solenoid in the tranny is full of junk! / metal shavings starving the tranny from the front pump while in O/D

I had the same issue with my truck, the switch was the problem.
I solved my issue by process of elimination which started with the switch,,, easiest thing to replace first.

I suggest that the self adjusting clutch cable / mechanism has locked - taking up all the "slack" you gave it.
Check for a ratchet arrangement behind the clutch pedal - or maybe in the cable itself. You may need a new clutch cable fitting.

Did you replace the slave or master cylinder or both? WHats the reason for needing to bleed it? If it seemed like it was out of adjustment and you bled it, it may indicate that either of these parts are allowing fluid past when under pressure. If you replaced one and not the other, that could be where your problem lies. If you replaced both, then try loosening the bleeder and leave it undone overnight. This should allow the air out.
