Ok, the thing is he is able to shift with no grinding, no trouble shifting, BUT normally it would be the pressure plate, & probably is. The spring that retracts the clutch is to just keep the throw-out bearing from riding the pressure plate. The Ford Ranger I had you could shift no problem by not using the clutch.

One other thing is if there is a slave cylinder, it is operated with break fluid, & may need replacing as seals go bad in those after time. The slave cylinder operates the throw-out bearing to disengage the clutch. Can't remember if there is one on a Ranger.

Well if you shift without using the clutch you should be able to get quite a bit of grinding.

Ok here guys, what is the deal? What is the benefit of answering a 2 week old question, with no response from the question-air? :)
