You can always adjust the angle of the stick shifter with a little bit of heat.

Does Stan have a press, or can he use your butt cheeks to fix it that way?

I was waiting for this. . .
 
It was said before.  I believe Ed questioned the length of the slave cylinder.  It doesn't have enough travel.
 
I think I mentioned, some dodge trucks had hydraulic clutches.  I think it was the second generation.  (96 to '02)  I know the 250's in the first gen were mechanical

I still have the link for that neato Dakota complete setup by rhinopac from Rock Auto.  Think I should just bite the bullet and buy it?

You just need a slave.  The rest is all good

Can you get to a salvage yard and pull the whole thing from there, saving a little money and actually seeing how it mounts and all that? Or at least have a buddy with a Dakota manual that you can look at?
 
Let's check the travel at the fork itself. Take some kind of measurement from a fixed position, then from up above, press the clutch in and do a 2X4 measurement from the pedal (in the down position) to the front edge of the seat. You can cut a second 10inch 2X4 to lay against the face of the seat side to side and then jam the 2X4 in there and it won't hurt the seat. Crawl back under there and see how much the fork moved. From there I don't know how far it needs to move but I am hoping someone else has that measurement, 3spd or 4spd should be the same during that era, 4spd would be best. My best guesstimate would be that the fork needs to move about two inches or more at the slave cylinder point due to the ratio to engage/disengage the throwout bearing to release the clutch.

The outside end has to swing about 4 or 5".  I was wondering  about a lever and reverse the slave.  He can increase the swing that way . . .   But there isn't allot of room

Adjust the clutch as far out as you can.  Then start thecar and see if it disengages then.  If it does, you just need a longer slave

That's why I don't know if the pressure plate is binding or if the slave just doesn't have enough oomph.

Then you still have air, or a defective master

Put a hose off the end of the bleeder into the can of fluid.  Pump the crap out of it.  Remember where that bleeder is. . . .

You can use the board thingy to depress the pedal so you can, by yourself, open the bleeder and close it, by yourself. I had to bleed the Charger brakes, all new system, lines and hoses, by myself, and this is how I was able to do it.
