I too have an 87 4kcsq.  New clutch went in at about 155,000 miles.  I 
had been experiencing intermittent problems as you describe before and 
after the clutch replacement.

Just last week I lost all hydraulic pressure in the clutch, but no 
visible leaks from wither master or slave.  New master cylinder is being 
installed this week.

Easy thing to do might be to bleed clutch and put in fresh fluid.  If 
that does not make the sympton go away and if the new master cylinder has 
been installed, then one of the guys on the lsit who really understands 
these cars will have to help.  I'm in over my head.
