Icon4 Help! Clutch R&R Problem...

1985 Ranger 2WD 2.3 w/ code 5 (Toyo Koygo) 5 spd. trans. In the process of installing the new clutch and got to the disconnect the slave cylinder part.
The slave cylinder connection seems to be on top of the bell housing, nearly impossible to get to, with what appears to be a heavy wire loop, possibly a retaining ring, near the connection. There also appears to be a disconnect attached to the master cylinder, but with no "white ring" in evidence. This device is approximately 1" in diameter and about 2 1/2" - 3" long. Looks like it should cone apart about 5/8" back from where it connects to the master cylinder. Manual is no help, no pictures, and a simple "remove clip and pull line out" description. Been wrenching cars for many years, but this one has me stumped! Can anyone help?

Thanks!

From what i understand, your problem is that you cannot disconnect the slave cylinder connection?

That would be my problem :( I can't really see/get to where the line goes into the trans, but the thing on the line from the master cyl seems like it may be a quick-disconnect... I'm in the process of improvising a tool since mine wandered off.

That sounds about right, Unfortunately, i don't know all that much about pre Gen 3 rangers, i've never really done much work to them. maybe another member on here will have more information.

Old pieces of crap are usually my forte, but my beloved Ranger is constantly testing me, haha.

Looking at rockauto.com pics , it would appear that there is a clip that goes around the slave bleeder screw area , the straight end of the clip holds the line in.The curved side goes around the by the base of the bleeder.

That's exactly what it was, thanks so much for the pic! We ended up taking the master cyl off the firewall and carefully dropping it with the trans. we couldn't see or access the pin until we dropped the trans.
