Clutch problems! Help asap please

My jeep wranglers clutch locked up on me today. I mean that as in, the clutch does not depress more than 1/2 of an inch before locking up solid. As if the rod was catching something metal and not moving.

If i press my pedal in ever so slowly the clutch goes in and it works. The clutch actuates fine in this case(meaning i can change gears and move).

It would seem as if the clutch pedal rod pops too far out of the cylinder causing it to catch on something.

Do you think adjustment will help? If so were can I adjust the rod's stroke?

If not the case, what would cause this?

Now that I look at it, it's not adjustable.

Looks like I need a new clutch master cylinder.

If you have a YJ the rod will come out to far and get hung. I installed a bolt in the metal bracket under the dash to stop the pedal from coming out to far. Theres already a hole that will work, ck it out before buying MC.

Let's hope that the new MC won't cause your SC to start leaking. Back when I first got my YJ, there was a lot of folks who posted problems with leaky SCs causing clutch failure.
