Welcome to FTE INEED2SPEED.

Go ahead and install the replacement system you bought. These things are very difficult to properly bleed, but the system is easy to replace.

While I don't know for certain, it seems that these slaves fail internally and just push the fluid around without creating any pressure.

I've replaced my hydraulics twice for the same symptoms you described. Replaced just the slave on a guys truck last week and it took two days of filling and pumpng the system to get all the air out. Big PITA.

The 99's had a weaker arm that goes from the slave into the bell and to the throwout bearing. That can bend. There is also a plastic fulcrum that it pivots on. It can totally distort.

I had a really good experience putting on the master/slave combo and needed no additional bleeding.

99 Superduty Powerstroke Clutch Slave Bleeding

Hi Cookie88, Thanks For Your Quick Response. Im Going To Change The Whole Kit Today. As Much As I Have Worked On The Old One, It Seems Im Beating A Dead Horse. I Guess Im More Mad That It Only Lasted 40, 000 Miles. Sounds Like Its Going To Be A Ongoing Problem. Thanks Again, Ed

I'm not sure what Rod you're refering to. The arm is a stamped steel piece about a foot and a half long that comes out of the bell housing. The slave cyl pushes on it. This arm tends to bend or break. You can't replace it without pulling the trans.

There is a rod that comes out of the slave unit. Do not take the plastic retainer off of it. It will break under the first usage and be fine. If you break it, it will be a pain to install.

There is fluid already in it.
