The clutch master cylinder is on the drivers side under the hood behind the brake booster.

There is a reservoir for the hydraulic clutch under the hood , driver side just above the brake master cylinder reservoir. The clutch also has a bleeder valve on the driver side of the clutch bell housing. full size K5 blazer in 83 does not have hydraulic clutch. small little s-10 blazer does possibly, in 83 but may not until 85 also., you need to know which blazer you have, little one or big one they are TOTALLY different trucks., there was no hydraulic clutch in the full size trucks until 85, including the K5 blazer

85 Lude, old school cable clutch... No hydraulics (fluid)

There are two normal causes. The clutch is worn out or there is a leak in the hydraulic clutch slave or master cylinder. To check the clutch, press the clutch slave cylinder down. If the clutch slave cylinder bellows compresses down to the slave cylinder, the clutch is worn out. Check the clutch master cylinder fluid level. if this is low, then the clutch cylinder need to be checked. To check for a hydraulic leak in the clutch slave cylinder, remove the cylinder's bellows and check for any fluid. If fluid is present, rebuild or replace the cylinder and bleed the system. To check the clutch master cylinder, check the back the of clutch master cylinder for leaks. If fluid is present, replace or rebuild clutch master cylinder and bleed the system. In my experience, hydraulic leaks occur at the clutch slave cylinder.

On a 1996 Ranger the manual shows to lift the clutch pedal every 5000 miles to adjust the hydraulic clutch - I have no idea if your's is the same

Dot 3 brake fluid is an acceptable fluid to use. It is the standard clutch fluid for most vehicles.

The clutch master cylinder is under the hood, drivers side, on the firewall. It is between the brake master cylinder and the drivers side fender. The cylinder is very small in comparison to the brake master cylinder. The reservoir is the small white plastic canister above it.

85 feet - when the reservoir is full

You can't. Those units are factory sealed and cannot be bled. I know cuz I had to replace the clutch on my truck and it makes that job tough. The cluth, rod, reservoir and hoses are all one unit.

Chances are that your clutch is not FULLY disengaging the transmission when you are depressing the pedal. The clutch is hydraulic with a master and slave cylinder and a hydraulic hose connecting the two. It is basically the same type of system your brakes use. If you get air in the line due to either cylinder or the hose being faulty, it will feel as though the clutch is working but it is not. This can range from a complete clutch failure or just having the clutch "drag". Any force from on the flywheel at a stop will prevent you from being able to put the car in gear...

No, the 86 has 7 clutch plate and the 85 has 6 so the 85 clutch cover is not deep enough. I had the same issue

It cost me $185.00. That includes $85 for new reservoir tank and coolant & $100 labor.

I don't mean to insult, but are you sure you are looking at the clutch master cylindar and not the brake? There is no way fluid from the clutch could make it to the rear wheel. The slave cylinder is most likely the problem if it drips near the wheel. Replace it with a rebuilt unit not a kit.

85 US fluid ounces is 2.5 (2.51375) liters.

shared with brake master cylinder.

Simply loosten the line, pump it one time , tighten it let your foot off of the brake and loosten it again and pump it one time etc until no more air comes out then do the same for the slave cylinder.Sometimes it is hard to get all of the air out but persistance will prevail. DON'T PUMP THE PEDAL as that muxes the air in the fluid.

Valve adjustment is generally a thing of the past after the introduction of hydraulic lifters (no adjustment). In 1994 your engine should have hydraulic lifters and are not adjustable.
