    Default Adjusting clutch

    Can anyone tell me how to adjust my clutch? It engages right at the very end of the pedal coming all the way out. I can just slightly push the clutch and the drive disengages. I am afraid that it is slipping right now when the pedal is all the way out.

    check your manual for the freeplay setting. that is how much you should be able to push the pedal before you encounter resistance.

    if it is too tight / no or negative freeplay, you will wear the fingers as they will be in contact with the TO bearing constantly.

    As mentioned the manual should give spec's, but as a general rule 1 - 1 1/2 inches of free play are usually the norm.

    If you have the correct free play..... well you might need a new clutch.

    Look for the linkage connecting to your clutch pedal. Somewhere in that linkage - between the pedal and the place where the linkage connects to a shaft entering the bell housing - is an adjuster. Adjust that to give you freeplay at the top of your pedal travel. Around an inch play is good.
