Re: 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.
A self adjusting type clutch mechanism is used. The adjust mechanism consists of a spring loaded ratchet quadrant attached to the clutch cable. To accomplish this adjustment, grasp clutch pedal and pull upward, then slowly depress clutch pedal. If a click is heard during the procedure, an adjustment was necessary and has been accomplished. This procedure should be performed at least every 5000 miles.
If this does not remedy the condition, either the cable or linkage is binding.
