helped a buddy replace the clutch in his 93 f150 4 speed transmission with a 4.9. The retaining clip that holds the slave cylinder broke, what is the part number for this? Also we rigged it up until we can get the part, the slave cylinder moves a little would it cause it to shift hard? We can put it in first and will grind, it will do it to any gear but if you put it into 2nd gear first then it will go into any gear.
Part number for the retaining clip is?
also how do you bleed this thing, it does not have a bleeder on the slave cylinder?
I'm not sure about a part number, but I think to bleed the slave requires manually moving the slave cylinder held vertically with the hose end up to push the air up to the master cylinder. If the slave is moving at all in its mount, it could definitely keep the clutch from releasing fully (as would air in the system) which would cause difficulty getting it to go into gear.
