snafu EB2 clutch

Any members with 3 pedals know how to modify or check the clutch pedal effort?

My wagon is way stiffer than any of my Land Rovers ever were. A few years ago I took care of a friends VN manual 5.0l commie for few days and it was stiff too - but not this stiff!

Is the answer a new clutch cable? Anyone fitted one?

Umm

It might be possible that the cable is grabbing in the hole on the firewall and a new cable will fix this.It could be also possible that the throw out bearing has lost its lube on the input shaft which it slides on and this may also be pitted as it is separate from the gearbox itself and made from alloy.This can also be replaced as a separate item.The bushes on the pedal may need replacing too.Worse case the diaphram in the pressure plate maybe on its way out and clutch renewal is needed.The input shaft 'sleeve' must have the gearbox removed to replace this.It might pay to have your mechanic look at your car before you crack your firewall and break off your clutch pedal.

Thanks for the info. It gels with what the mechanic mentioned; that 'EAs get bent arms'. I had better buy a Gregorys Workshop guide to the EA-EB...

If you can, try adjusting it, my EF XR6 has a H/D clutch and is a bastard to use, every now and again, I give the adjuster nut a bit of a turn clockwise (looking from front of car) and its lighter again, pedal height goes up though,

The mechanic had a quick look to advise me and said that it is adjusted up. The clutch engages about half way up and slips with just a bit of pedal...
And I put it in for servicing today. Lo and Behold, Verily the clutch cable perisheth and has passed away. So he says. He put in a new cable...

While its in there I had the injectors cleaned too. So the result: when I drove it - it was like a different car; faster, smooth changes and the engine is revving nicely.

All in a good way to spend $136 (and it was $132 for the injectors).



Me happy boy.
