    '76 40 w/ 350.
    My clutch pedal had been gradually getting softer and softer with bairly any accual clutch movement. This morning there was no clutch movement at all, just the pedal. I bleed the system, still no pressure. Any ideas? :dunno:

    Was there any hydraulic fluid dripping from the seal around the slave cyl ? If yes, rebuild or replace. If no, rebuild or replace clutch master cyl.

    I would replace the whole system. It's pretty reasonable. I have used the rebuild kits for the slave before...waste of money. It only lasted about 3 months and I was stranded again. You can replace the slave and master for about $100, that should solve your issue.
