[DML] Re: How to change the clutch engagement?


You could install the adjustable link rod hat John hervey sells on his site Or I should say, 
clutch master cylinder linkage rod. You may be able to make the adjustments you need by 
doing that. I happen to have one of Rob Gradys adjustable clevis links he used to sell but 
are no longer avaliable. I also happen to have the Centerforce clutch in my car but mine 
has the weights installed on the diapragm spring. Center force no longer does this 
because of a design change made by Valeo several years ago. My clutch disengages at 
about one third downward pedal travel. I have driven a car that had a severally worn out 
clutch that would engage and disengage just of the the floor which ment the clutch was 
barely disengaging in order too shift. yes, he had shifting problems. That all went away 
with the new clutch we installed last year. Now his pedal engages about 1/3 travel  now.
