Re: Tracker clutch adjustments
The adjustment for the clutch is just under the starter on the bellcrank that the cable passes through. According to my Haynes book, there should be 1-2 milimeters of free play at the bellcrank lower end. That's not very much play.
You can adjust how far through the bellcrank the cable end goes at the rigid mounting point near the motor mount, Do this if the cable end, where it threads through bellcrank is at either extreme end of the threaded portion of the end.
If your clutch is slipping badly enough that the engine is revving going up hill as described, then either your clutch cable adjustment is too tight, that is, no free play, or your clutch is shot and its time to replace it. Seems to be about $90 on Ebay all the time for clutch, pressure plate & throwout bearing.
I adjusted mine tighter last night and its working ok now, though I think I damaged the shifter to tranny connection somehow as today it feels loose and sloppy. Hopefully nothing that can't be fixed without too much trouble.
