Hi I am having trouble getting it into gear so I checked the clutch cable measurement it is 640mm up and 740mm fully down thatís
100mm so it is 41mm out from what the Haynes manual says so do I need to loosen or tighten the clutch cable
to get the right setting.
forget measurements for now, it should sit level with the brake pedal and bite halfway up this point. Reverse is usually the gear thats troublesome if its not adjusted properely. The clutch bites with the pedal very close to the floor in those circumstances.
ok cool, quick fix then. lift up the clutch pedal as far as it will go, then prop it up with a hammer handle or whatever you can find. Then you should have enough slack in the cable to adjust the nylon lock on the gearbox. I presume you know what i mean ? Its a white block the other side of the clutch lever ontop of the gearbox under the bonnet.
You need to wind it clockwise a few turns, so the nylon block moves towards the bulkhead. You might find you have a circlip the other side of the clutch lever just to keep the cable safe, remove this temporarily. Give the adjuster a few turns and try the clutch, bit of trial and error.
oddball done as you said propped up the clutch pedal with a hammer was just about to put the spanner on the nut to adjust it when I
Heard a thud the clutch pedal fell off the hammer but when I looked the pedal is now higher than the brake pedal
I re checked the setting and its now 5mm out biting point is now about half whey up what has happened
Is there a fault in the pedal.
Everything seems fine except there is a bracket bolted onto the
Gearbox does this hold the clutch cable as mine is not in it
I have tried to get it in but the cable wonít bend enough and it
Would make the curve a bit sharp to the lever should i
Leave it were it is.
