Clutch adjustment description.

My newly installed clutch is engaging too close to the floor for my liking. Its hard to shift smoothly as it engages almost as soon as you begin to let off the pedal. How do I go about adjusting this? I am familiar with the adjustment rod that rests on the clutch fork just cant remember the adjustment procedure. Been too many years since I did it.

Re: Clutch adjustment description.

Just loosen the jam nut and turn the rod that contacts the fork in and out (sounds like yours needs to come out). Use a tape measure run from the floor to the pedal and adjust until you can only push the pedal 1" to 1-1/2" by hand before feeling resistance. Return spring must be connected for this.
