For this i remember having to get under the dash and with my head by the pedals, you will see a little rod connecting to the top of the clutch pedal. there was a nut on there you have to loosen i think, and then with pliers you can rotate the rod clockwise / counterclock wise depending on if youre trying to engage sooner or later. ill try to find a post that helped me..

Default Re: Clutch adjustment

I have been working with this the last couple of days. Did it once and forgot to tighten the lock nut. Behind the pedal there is the nut and adjuster. The adjuster is a spline line device, not something you can put a open end wrench on. If you are comming from the bottom and you put the pliers from the bottom. Turn it from the Passenger side to the driver side to raise the engagement point. A little bit goes a long way. Try it about .5 turns and tighten the lock nut and test drive.

Hope this helps
Christian
If you need it I can get pictures

Default Re: Clutch adjustment

Ok guys, here is the picture, I think everything is on there that is needed. Just remember it is important to tighten the lock nut because it will move on its own.

I like my pedal pretty close to the floor so i adjust it some, start the car, put it into first and floor it (on a level surface) with the clutch all the way in. If it doesnt move then I am golden.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks
Christian

I know this is an old post, but here's some additional info. from Jacks Transmissions, that tells you how to adjust the clutch properly, and problems that can occur if it's adjusted incorrectly. Jacks Transmissions LLC — Tech Articles 3000GT

When I adjusted mine, my blower motor quit working. Reason why: I bumped the blower motor relay loose. Just something to be aware of.
