Tired of Junk Clutch Hydraulics

Synchros shot? Weird noises while shifting? Not sure what needs to be replaced?

Whelp, I am hopeful. It is now three weeks since they bled the Ranger clutch hydraulics. This time they actually stood the Ranger up nearly onto the back bumper and bled it that way and the clutch is still working beautifully. There was a slight loss of pedal at first but it seems to have settled out, and I am not having any problems shifting.

Paul,
Have you considered, given your abysmal history with the clutch release system on your Ranger, "Clutch Release System Conservation"?
You really ony need to use your clutch to launch from a standing start. You can even eliminate that usage if you can start the vehicle without depressing the clutch pedal. You could perfect your no-clutch shifting and save that clutch release system for when you will your Ranger to your grandchild.
