95 f150 bad slave cylinder?

Last weekend one of my buddies got an 88 crew cab f350 Diesel stuck in a field. I didn't have a chain or tow strap with me, so I pushed his truck with my grillguard. When I was pushing his truck, my clutch pedal sunk to the floor, and my clutch started burning really bad. I immediately stopped pushing him and backed off. I pumped the clutch pedal a few times and it returned to normal function. I finished pushing him out, and spent the rest of the night with that burnt-clutch smell in my truck. The weird thing is that my truck is actually shifting a little smoother now that I burnt some clutch off. Am I looking at a slave cylinder going out?

Thank you 36 people that looked here and were kind enough to post. I appreciate the speedy and accurate responses that I always get in this section of the forum. If I had asked how to replace a headlight bulb I would have over 100 responses by now...

You havent heard any noise out of the bell housing area or nothing? I had a ranger that did something very similar to this thought it was the sleigh cylinder but turned out one of the spings in the clutch broke and was stuck in the finger springs on the pressure plate causing it to stay diengaged. If your trans has an inspection hole take a look through there and see if you can see anything out of the ordinary. Have you seen any fluid running out of there?

No weird noises, no fluid, everything looks normal. Was just a weird situation. Not low on fluid or anything like that, and it is actually shifting smoother now. This just isn't making any sense to me.

My motto in these situations is drive it till it breaks cause guessing and replacing parts can get expensive. is it an external sleigh cylinder or is it inside the bell housing? Is it manual linkage or does it have a clutch master cylinder?

Its my 95, so it has a master cylinder and it is an internal cylinder. Sorry I didn't specify better.
