no clutch travel

I have an 86 turbo coupe that is soso shape. The clutch pedal does not have enough travel. It seems like im trying to push the pedal thrue the floor to get it to disengage. Also hte pedal is real hard to push, my 69 f 250 had an easier clutch than this. I was wondering if there was anyway to adjust the clutch cable so the clutch will disengage sooner in pedal travel.

Re: no clutch travel

Check the rubber bushing on the firewall where the cable comes through. If the bushing is gone or worn significantly, it will cause a loss in about 1/4" of travel which equals alot of pedal travel. Check your clutch pedal bushings and the quadrant in the car too. There could be more wrong- but this is the best place to start looking. Anything else is going to require some bell housing access. If you go this far- you are probably looking at a clutch kit.
