Re: Clutch pedal

Is the pedal stop supposed to hit the collar stop before pedal hits the engine mount? Seems to.me it should.

Re: Clutch pedal

I would say yes. The pin in the bell housing is in line with the pin for the collar. The space between the collar stop and the pedal stop is almost 1/4 from each other when the pedal hits the mount....

Re: Adjustable Drag Link

I used a tie rod that got bent in the middle. Cut it too length and reused the reversed thread side and used a regular die on the other. Cheap to do and was able to repurpose an otherwise bad part.
