clutch problem, confused
I just put a new clutch in a 77CJ7, 258, 3 speed. I had the flywheel resurfaced, new disc, and left in old 3 finger cover as it looked fine. New pilot bushing and throwout bearing. Tranny went in easy with tip found here on using short studs for alignment. The problem is the linkage doesn't seem to be long enuf for the existing set up, even when fully extended the pedal will go down about 2 inches before resistance is felt and it won't come all the way back up. Shortening the linkage causes the pedal to just fall to the floor. The new clutch disc looked like the old, just new, as did the throwout bearing. Put the "flywheel side" to the flywheel. What did I do to mess this up?
thanks for any ideas
