Maximum Clutch Adjustment

Recommended Posts

Seasons greetings all!

After having only an inch or so of clutch left (the rest of travel was free play) i decided i should sort it.

I bought a new master and slave cylinder but before fitting i thought id see what adjustment i could get.

I have taken the end washer off and just got a thread or so holding the outer nut on and so its maxxed out!

This is now working great although i can feel the master cylinder is bottoming out at the end of the pedal stroke.

So, is this going to cause me problems?? i.e. should i expect the clutch to fail if it only is working at this adjustment??

I should add that i replaced the slave cylinder only 16 months ago with genuine so would hope its not that!

Also, the fluid was looking pretty murky. I did Bleed too and at first this made things worse as my wife lifted her foot up while i had the nut undone! :rolleyes:

I know this is really a process of elimination but i really need the 90 at the mo what with the weather and our living 5 miles from anything!

Any tips or advice would be greatly received!

Many thanks in advance

Paul

clutch pedal adjustment from Defender workshop manual, if not correct the clutch will slip.

Thanks Western.

I had set the clutch up using this diagram but I did wonder what the maximum adjustment would be?

My clutch doesn't slip, in fact it feels spot on. But, as I can feel the master cylinder start to bottom out at the end of the pedal stroke, does anyone think i might damage it?

My OP probably didn't explain this too well!

Thanks again Western.

Went for a longer drive today and i ended up with no free play whatsoever so looks like it needs adjusting back a bit now anyhow! :rolleyes:

Cheers and merry Christmas!
