While running, it rolls forward while in reverse and clutch depressed and roles backward in 1st while clutch depressed. Momentum feels the same as when in neutral.So you push in the clutch while in gear, and the truck will roll down a slope? That means the clutch is disengaging. It may not be disengaging 100%; the weight of the truck may be enough to overcome any leftover drag. I would try jacking up the rear end and spinning the tires by hand with it in gear and with the clutch pushed in. The wheels should be easy to rotate by hand. If not, the clutch may be dragging.
Pilot bearing is still my guess, because it happens when the engine is running -- the input shaft is still spinning even with the clutch pushed in.
I did encounter one clutch that was dragging because the friction disc was coated with grease and oil, but the inside of your bellhousing looks clean.
I did an eyeball test with the clutch off it seems to move at least the distance of the collar. I am told the spec is 5/16th movement.
I will try spinning the driveshaft with clutch depressed. I will also see WHEN clutch pedal's travel the truck starts rolling.
