Re: Clutch pedal

It does have the correct hub. Could I have the wrong clutch arm? How could I tell if it's right?

Re: Clutch pedal

I did check disc and it was install correct. I'm going to experiment with the fingers at 3/4. If the fingers are closer to the disc and I adjust at pedal it should release higher on the pedal. Either...

Re: Clutch pedal

Is the pedal stop supposed to hit the collar stop before pedal hits the engine mount? Seems to.me it should.

Re: Clutch pedal

I would say yes. The pin in the bell housing is in line with the pin for the collar. The space between the collar stop and the pedal stop is almost 1/4 from each other when the pedal hits the mount....

Re: Adjustable Drag Link

I used a tie rod that got bent in the middle. Cut it too length and reused the reversed thread side and used a regular die on the other. Cheap to do and was able to repurpose an otherwise bad part.
