Hydraulic clutch on an 85 Bronco
Hey ya guys, my 16 year old got himself an 85 Bronco a couple weeks ago that belonged to my neighbor. Anyway, the thing has had problems with going into gear forever by what my neighbor has said, and I am pretty certain that it is probably the slave cylinder that is causing the trouble and I am wondering if any of you can suggest a swap in hydraulic system that will allow replacement of the individual parts in the future so I won't have to ever remove and replace the slave cylinder and master cylinder and line as an assymbly again? Or is there something else that may be the cause of his troubles? Specificaly speaking, it will grind going into any gear from a dead stop. Clutch seams to be dragging like it's not fully disengaged when you come to a stop sign, enough so that it will stall the truck occasionaly, and problem gets worse as the truck gets warmed up. Shifts fine from gear to gear while moving, but has a DISTINCT and DEFINITE whine in 2nd and 3rd gear but is fine in 4th. Did search but didn't find much that seemed like it was helpfull so figured I'd ask. Any other tips regarding this ford thing would be apreciated as I am a mopar jeep man and don't have huge expierence with ford trucks. Thanks guys.
