Brad I had the very same symptoms in my 87 9000 and found the line between the Brake reservoir and Clutch master cylinder had a material breakdown causing the clutch master cylinder to gum up. I purchased a rebuild kit (no metal just rubber)and took everything apart to clean it up with brake fluid. Put it back together and replaced the line, bled it as I would brakes. No problem as of yet and that was nine months ago.
