Clutch Adj.

How do you adjust the clutch? My clutch doesnt engage untill the pedel is almost at the top. I've tried adjusting it from the bottom where the cable is connected to the arm on the transmisson.
But it still engages when the pedel is almost to the top.
I would like for the clutch to engage a little lower....Help

Re: Clutch Adj.

You need to loosen the adjuster on the bottom.Sometimes they are rusted solid. make sure to soak it with
rust penatrating oilbefore you try it.

Re: Clutch Adj.

There are two separate adjustments to your clutch. The first and easiest is a 14mm nut on the end of the cable. It is located on the passenger's side down by your tranny. This is typically used to adjust the freeplay in your pedal.

The second adjustment actually involves two nuts and is the more serious of the two adjusters. A few inches from the nut at the end of the cable is two more 14mm nuts. A little goes a long way to adjust in small 1/8" or less increments.

Also, check your clutch cable before investing too much time in fiddling with adjustments. The cables do fall apart over time and needs to be replaced for proper operation. Have someone put their foot on your clutch pedal while you inspect the entire length of the cable.
