ok posted this in the old site no respons every one was probley here by now ... so. I just bought this 89 f-250 love the truck. However, about 1000 miles ago he put a new cluth and tranny in. the tranny came out of like a 92 truck. now i took it for a test drive and the cluth is down a little meaning the pedal is about two inches from where it normailly rest. then the catch and release point are way shore. I know what a ford clutch feels like this is not it, too soon to quick on the way up, any ideas?

Hydraulic Clutch linkage = Bleed it.
Manual clutch linkage = adjust it.

I'm sure that the manual trans for an '89 and '92 are fully interchangeable.
I'm not exactly sure what your issue is. Is it that you don't care for at what level the clutch pedal is when the clutch engages and disengages?

If so that is just an adjustment of the clutch pedal linkage. I am assuming that the clutch linkage on that is still a mechanical linkage, and not a hydrolic one. Do you know?

and yeah it how the clutch pedal sits, i want more travel out of the pedal, because it engages so quick that it hard to find the proper let off point, i know how to drive a manual but its so quick that im either over reving or underreving the motor to go

It should be a hydraulic clutch, IIRC they started switching to that in 1981, I had a friend with an 81 F150 that had a hydraulic clutch.

this is an old post but i found out it was none of the above (i was searching through some of my old posts) and it is actually the busing between the clutch pedal and clutch rod is worn and so is the housing it sits in ... now to find out if i can just replace the rod and bushing ...........
