HELP!!! FAST!!! changing clutch master cyl....

I need help! I cant seem to disconnect the rod off the top of the clutch pedal.

If you can help, please reply here and also give me a ring...i'm in a bind and need the truck fixed by sunday night. I've been playing with it for about an hour now and starting to get pissed/frusterated in 95 degree weather.

found it from this: http://www.clarks-garage.com/shop-manual/clutch-04.htm

Removal

1. Place the front of the car on ramps or jack stands so you can work under the car and get to the clutch slave cylinder to bleed the clutch once you're done with this project. It also raises the car to a level you can work at without ruining your back.
2. First, you will discover that, unless you remove the seat, you're going to be on your back in a small space until you get a few pieces off. I don't know how large people do this. Have patience. You can do it.
3. At the pedal cluster, there is a plastic cover over the connecting rod between the master cylinder and clutch pedal. I think it was put there to keep large feet from ripping all that wiring out, but it also keeps you from getting the clutch master cylinder disconnected, so you need to remove this cover to get at the connecting rod/spring clip/bushing.
4. Using a 10mm socket, remove the three nylon nuts that hold a plastic cover in place. There are two on the left edge (as viewed from behind the vehicle looking forward) and one on the aft right corner.



5. Remove Spring Clip from clutch pedal where the clevis (exploded views 14, 28) connects to the clutch pedal assembly. Simply pull down on the clip with needle nose pliers. Mark with a paint pen where the clevis connects to the clutch master cylinder connecting rod. This rod will need to be adjusted for the proper play when you reinstall the clutch master cylinder. Do not remove the clevis from clutch master cylinder push rod until you've measured the length of the push rod / clevis assembly (detailed in installation section).
