'99 & up Upgrades and Aftermarket - 7.3L EngineUpgrading or adding OEM or aftermarket equipment to your 1999-Up Super Duty or Excursion with 7.3L Power Stroke diesel engine. Please confine discussion of topics in this forum to those items that are specific to the 7.3L Power Stroke engine.
Clutch pedal went to the floor and stayed there today. After searching this forum I suspect the master/slave cylinder needs replacement. Found some posts saying this was a quick and easy job when replacing with the pre-bled kit from ford but found no instructions.
Any help would be appreciated. Looking for tips or detailed instructions on this job.
First check and make sure the clutch master pushrod did not fall off the pedal. If it didn't, then it sounds like the hydraulics are bad. The master & slave cylinders remove by pushing in and turning 1/4 turn CCW then pull them out. The pre-bled kit number is 2C3Z-7C522-CA and was about $110 when I picked mine up.

RIP Steph F. & Trista J., 4/27/07, you will be missed by many.
When you replace them make sure and get the pre-bled kit and the replacement pushrod for the master cylinder- its almost impossible to get the old one out. Take the slave out first, push in and 1/4 turn ccw, pop the line out of the retainers/clips, then disconnect the master cylinder from the clutch pedal (the little plastic clip will probably break). Under the hood pop the reservoir off the truck (leave the hose connected) and pull the master cylinder (1/4 turn ccw). Same thing in reverse to reinstall everything. If this doesn't fix your problem its time for a new clutch.
Before taking the slave cylinder out make sure that the clutch pedal is off the floor, It will still have some pressure and is hard to get push it in and turn a 1/4 of a turn with all the pressure. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] Been there done that.
