I just had a new clutch, master cylinder and slave cylinder installed in my trusty old Ranger and now it won't go into reverse! The mechanic can't figure out what the problem is. He used Motomaster parts, too!
There's no adjustment. Maybe there's air in the system yet. They are hard to bleed it all out. Does the pedal feel like it has about an inch of movement, then has more resistance? That's what it should feel like.
I had the same problem with my 1990 f150. I bled the clutch and the problem went away. The procedure I used was to let the system gravity bleed with the valve underneath open and me up top making sure the reservoir stayed full. I had to pump the clutch to get it started. once the fluid was completely changed, I used a two man bleeding process just like brakes. The difference between before and after was very slight but enough to get me up and running! :)
