Re: Clutch Won\'t Fully Disengage ??
First off , make sure the clutch release arm is properly aligned on the bell housing , so it is facing just behind vertical at rest . If the vehicle has been sitting awhile , the clutch disk can actually rust right to the flywheel tight . Another problem is the center line of "throw" on the cable , whether it's too far away or not far enough . Try backing off the end adjuster on the cable , then moving the swing point back and forth with the cable housing adjustment at the engine near the passenger side motor mount . Also, look for signs of cracking in that mount , mine broke off one side not too long ago and had to be replaced . There is also a depth setting for the clutch on the pedal , this is more or less used to set the pedal height and throw length . Sometimes a new cable is a bit short or long compared to the one that it replaced , you just have to find the sweet spot .....
