A clutch is usually adjusted from underneath the car if it's a mechanical clutch.

Your comment that there is very little play at the top indicates an improperly adjusted clutch. You should have about 1/2 - 3/4 inch of play before feeling the clutch in the pedal.

How do I ajust my clutch on a chevy 1983 k30 1ton dump truck


Should be an adjustment on the linkage to the clutch fork. Adjust to give some free play at pedal.

Interesting problem. A bent fork is not impossible, but this would usually make the clutch not release fully. Try increasing the pedal free play, so that you can guarantee the slave cylinder is not holding the clutch slightly open. If not this, then it all has to come out again ...

Burnt smell from clutch when im in 3rd gear


It sounds like the clutch is close to being worn out as the pressure plate is not gripping the clutch plate with sufficient force when power is applied. Before you consider replacing any thing, first check the clutch free travel adjustment because as the clutch plate wears the free travel does decrease and if there is no free travel, then there will be some releasing action on the pressure plate allowing cluth plate slip. Hydraulic setups are usually self adjusting but you should check the free travel of the clutch pedal which should be about 3/8 to 1/2 inch measured at the pedal rubber. This is done by adjusting the push rod that links the pedal arm to the piston in the master cylinder. Adjust by first loosening the locknut on the rod at the end where it attaches to the pedal arm and turning the rod in either direction to obtain the correct free travel. One adjusted retighten locknut.
For a cable setup there should at least 1/8 inch of free travel of the cable before it starts to move the clutch fork on the outside of the bell housing. To adjust, hold the operating fork so that the release bearing is touching the fingers of the pressure plate. You will need to turn the cable adjuster so there is only about 1/8 to 1/4 inch of free travel of the cable where it attaches to throw out fork before it starts to move the fork when the pedal is depressed.
If all adjustments are correct and clutch is still slipping then the pressure plate diaphragm spring has lost its tension and /or the clutch plate has worn down to the rivets. Either way you will have to do a complete clutch rebuild.

I have a 97 golf and my clutch pedal just hit the floor. I see a rubber piece on the fork that looks like it might have had something to do with holding the cable in place. can anyone tell me what part is...


Since its not a hydraulic clutch, the cable might have either slipped off the thread or possibly broke. Also check the spring to make sure that is still in it.. just look underneath the pedal.

The clutch keeps slipping, but it is fairly new. Someone said something about putting a clutch disc in and I'm wondering if that would solve it or if it needs a brand new clutch again.


If the clutch is fairly new,hopefully it hasn't been damaged.Under the dash is an adjustment for the clutch.You have to get in the car with your back on the floorboard looking up with a light.Locate the clutch pedal and follow it up to where it is mounted under the dash.Look forward to the firewall and you will see a gold colored rod coming back from the firewall,and attach to the clutch pedal.Where the rod is threaded,close to the clutch pedal,is a jam nut,and it will be either 12mm or 14 mm in size.Loosen the jam nut and back it off several threads.Now turn the gold rod inwards towards the rear of the car,and that should make the clutch engagement point lower on the clutch pedal travel,or closer to the floor,and should make the clutch stop slipping,unless,of course,it is damaged beyond adjustment,and needs to be replaced.This is the adjustment procedure for the clutch when a new one is installed,and once a year,after that.
