clutch

My clutch suddenly got very soft and it never gets fully into gear and i cant over take cause the engine will just rev and the car won't accelerate well at all. Is there anyway i can adjust the clutch it is the factory cable. All help is appreciated

Lift up on the pedal until you hear a click. I have an adjustable quadrant, but im fairly sure this is how the factory setup is adjusted.

Idk about your particular model, or how much power your pushing, but for an oem replacement on my 97 cobra is around 100 bucks.....but high end twin disks can cost quite a bit more than that, all depending on what company your most comfortable with

You really don't need a twin disc clutch. It would be harder to push in and I'm sure you aren't in need of that set up.

You need to verify that you have the stock quadrant, if you don't then the clutch pedal adjustment won't work. If its an aftermarket quadrant then you will likely have to get under the car to adjust it if you don't have a firewall adjuster. If you adjust it and it still slips then a stock replacement should do fine, or the king cobra clutch is a cheap and effective upgrade.

I do have the stock quadrant i believe but the clicking on the pedal when pulled did help some. I can get up my driveway now but still no making full contact. I've found a FRPP clutch. Is that a good upgrade its $200

I just installed the orielly clutch grabs really well was only 80 or so, get your flywheel resurfaced, get a new pilot and throwout/release bearing, to adjust your cable get under your dash and find the stock quadrant, with one hand depress the clutch fully with the other grab and hold the quadrant and release the clutch its hard to hold, but you'll feel it click 3-4 times (thats the best way to do it). Let me know if you have questions
