whats with my f350 clutch???

I have a 2000 f350 super duty, powerstroke. Recently I had the slave cylinde replaced for the clutch which is hydraulic of course. My manual says that its self adjusting, but the problem is this, I've got tons of free play in the pedal, and then at the very end of the stroke I finally get some resistance. But even with the pedal all the way to the floor I can barely get it in gear, like the the preasure plate and clutch disc aren't seperating completely. I checked the reseviour for fluid and Its fine. Anybody got any Ideas?

Re: whats with my f350 clutch???

those are terrible for bleeding out all the air, i've found that if you just keep pumping the pedal it will get it out but ittakes awhile, even when it feels good and you think youre done the next morning the pedal will be low again, just the first few days though. sit there and pump it until your legs are numb and when you can shift without gear clash then drive around if you want(more interesting to use the clutch driving around then sitting in the driveway staring blankly out the windshield i do believe). post again if its still stubborn
