My friend is a modern day mechanic, not a Model A mechanic ! Is there a tutorial for him to watch or follow to adjust my clutch? Thanks in advance.

What are you trying to adjust ? Fingers or free=play ?

You friend will know how to adjust the free-play.

Is the tranny full of oil?
Is the clutch arm intact, no cracks?

I assume that you realize that the A trans. does not have syncronizers.
Search youtube for How to shift a model a.

If it started grinding out of nowhere my bet is that the arm cracked.
