Clutch won't disengage ~

2002 F-250, 7.3L, 6 Speed, 97k miles ~

I am 200 miles from home this morning and stop to get some fuel. I come to a stop, transmission in gear, clutch pedal on the floor and start creeping forward. I think I must be on a bit of a hill and step on the brake. The rear tires start spinning and the truck insists on forward motion. The clutch pedal will not come up off the floor, the stick will not come out of gear and I am burning out in the dirt. So, I shut off the ignition. I restart the truck and pry the clutch pedal off the floor with my toes. Put it in gear and go to parts house to top off hydraulic fluid ~ which was not low.

Highway traveling was fine, not any problems shifting into 4th- 6th. The trouble came whenever I had to stop. So, I just throw it in neutral and coast, no biggy. Then the light turns green and she won’t go in gear or stay running. I have to all but start it in gear so we’re starting and going at the same time. Made for some busy driving.

So, I realize that the clutch is not disengageing and the throw out bearing is not ‘throwing out’. The local dealer replaced throw out and pilot bearings in March along with input shaft and 1st -4th syncros. So, I will be taking it right back for some warranty work. My question is this ~ Is there anything I can do to ‘jerry~rig’ my truck so I can get it to Ford without mowing everybody over along the way?

merlynr is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I'm not familiar with your setup, but if it has an adjustment rod associated with the hydraulic clutch, maybe you can "maladjust" the rod longer to compensate for clutch not disengaging properly until you can get it fixed.

Unfortunately there is no adjustment on the hydraulic assembly in your clutch. I'm afraid your only options are to either do what you've been doing or call a tow truck.

I was afraid of that... It's OK though, I got the rhythm down pat! Ha! Ha! We'll 'dance' our way to Ford tomorrow! Thanks!
