Default 1999 7.3 clutch problems. 3" of play in pedal, firewall part sloppy.

When I was researching this truck, I remember coming across the reason that this happens, but I can't find it now. The clutch pedal moves 3" before the actual linkage moves. Anybody know what this part is called?

I'm not sure if this is your problem. I found a TSB (99-1-6) about low clutch pedal. Its for 99 SD's built up to 9/12/98 with 7.3 and M6 trans. Its for Its talking about replacing the line to a line without a dampner and to replace the clutch pedal with one with more travel. Line P/N F81Z-7A512-BA. Pedal P/N F81Z-7B633-BC.

most likely a bushing in the pedal box, or something in the pedal box itself broke.

You need the plastic bushing that goes in the clutch linkage at the pedal. You'll need it soon, or the linkage pops off and the pedal will suck itself to the floor. :tonka:

I have a spare part in my truck, but I'm at work so I can't give you the part number.

LOL, it's funny when it falls off because the return spring on the pedal over-centers and THUMP! goes the pedal to the floor.

I carry an extra linkage bushing and an extra CPS in my glovebox.
