Hey guys 94 f250 7.3 ps zf5. Latly my clutch hasnt been doing well, whenever i go into reverse, it grinds like hell and wont stop, clutch to the floor, trick not rolling. Is my synchro out? Is there an adjustment? A clutch brake? From 1st to second it does it sometimes for a split second. Also from a stop sometimes it doesnt like to go into first, gotta hold it there for a min before it goes in. Only thing i can think of is a clutch brake that slows the gears?
There is a plastic bushing on the clutch push rod that can go bad if I remember correctly and cause this exact symptom. Another thing to check is to sick you head under the dash and move the pedals by hand and see if there might be a chance that the pedalbox (the bracket that holds the pedals) is cracked or broken. Someone with more experience in these will undoubtedly be along shortly, but this will give you something to look into in the mean time. It sounds to me like the clutch isn't disengaging completely.

If it isn't under warranty, I'll fix it myself.
