CLUTCH PEDAL HEIGHT
The clutch pedal height should not be a periodic adjustment but may be checked after components of the mechanical clutch system have been replaced.
The proper clutch pedal height should be 0.2 in. (5mm) above the brake pedal height
If adjustment is necessary, loosen the locknut and turn the adjusting bolt until the appropriate height is reached. Once set, keep the bolt from turning and tighten the locknut to secure the adjustment.
CLUTCH PEDAL FREE-PLAY
The clutch pedal free-play should be checked from time-to-time in order to assure proper clutch operation.
The proper clutch free-play should be 0.6-1.1 in. (15-25mm).
