Clutch Pedal Adjustment

The free pedal clearance is adjusted by lengthening or shortening the clutch control lever cable. Correct clearance is 1 1/2" (38,1 mm.). This clearance is essential to disengage the clutch release bearing and prevent unnecessary wear and possible clutch slippage. When adjusted as outlined above there is a safe clearance of approximately 1/16" (1,58 mm.) between the clutch release bearings and the clutch fingers. Correct clearance is 1" [25,4 mm.]. To make this adjustment, loosen lock nut, and unscrew cable to proper adjustment then tighten locknut. Free pedal travel is measured at the clutch pedal pad.  (J-3, p156)
