Default '89 F250 clutch pedal problem

Re: 1989 F250 2WD 7.3L Diesel 5 speed tranny

All of the linkages that connect the clutch pedal to the clutch are worn out. I have to push the pedal to the floor for the clutch to engage. It seems the only way to fix this is to change the whole package under the dash, including the brake pedal and linkage. Is this correct? Are there any other suggestions?

Thanks

Uh, what's a clutch!
More than likely many different points of movement,
plastic bushings.
Best of luck!

Likely has a hydraulic clutch and a slave cylinder that exerts pressure on the clutch. First check the hydraulic fluid level, many actually use brake fluid. If fluid OK check slave cylinder for movement. There is bushing at moving joints and they may need replaced but they are also unlikely your problem.

I had a similar issue with a 1988 7.3 super duty dump truck years ago. It felt like I had to push the clutch pedal through the floor also. Replacement of the pedal assembly was the fix. IMO, You’re on the right track.

There is an after market fix for this, you remove plastic part and install a bearing joint in place. I did it on my 96 stroke. Search powerstroke clutch pedal fix very simple fix for 10 bucks

Yea, I think this is the only resolution. My problem is not just on or 2 bushings. My problem is the whole cross bar and related linkages are worn out.
Thanks
