<VV> Clutch question
Sun, 8 Aug 2004 20:01:24 EDT
I've had a very low clutch release point in my '66 Corsa for ever. I have the
cable set up per the shop manual, the undeflected point is about 3/4" off the
trans mount. I can't see any flex in the different components, the clutch rod
starts to move when the pedal is pressed. I have a small amount of deflection
before the throwout bearing contacts the fingers, I don't want to preload the
bearing as that will cause it to wear out (again). Could the disk be too
thick? what else am I missing to get the release point off the floor?
BTW: As I'm getting close to having the silver coupe "finished", I'm heading
off to LA for a week. I'll be working second shift but may have some time to
go visit Larry...
