hydraulic clutch won't disengage

i bled the system. getting plenty of fluid but no pedal and cant put it in gear on my 1997 ranger. when i removed trans from truck i noticed brake fluid inside bell housing and the release bearing had completely come apart. is it safe to say the slave cylinder (which is inside bell housing behind the release bearing) needs to be replaced?

That's correct. We've always put the clutch kit in and most came with the slave cylinder. All the work taking the clutch out makes it best to replace it then.

Re: hydraulic clutch won't disengage

i didnt realize that the slave cylinder was IN THE TRANSMISSION BELL HOUSING. i wish i would have asked the question before i put the truck back together. i should have known to replace any and everything i could while i had it out since the trans had never been out in 199,656 miles on it. thought about driving it to a better shop ( in 1st gear of course) but i dont know if the slave cylinder caused the release bearing problem or the other way around. it wouldnt matter if it wasnt 100degrees outside everyday. thanks for all your help i'm sure i'll ask more questions of you.
