Clutch adjustment question

I need some help adjusting my clutch correctly. I still have the stock cable setup. I plan to buy a quadrant and firewall adjuster setup before winter hits, for now...

If the clutch is grabbing later (clutch pedal further out) than before, where should I make an adjustment at? At the tranny?

I don't think there's any real adjustment for them. You could do what the owners manual says to get it to readjust itself.

Thanks JDF. Yeah, I tried that, but I think that must be more for pedal slop. Hmmm, maybe the only way to adjust where you want it to grab is with an aftermarket quadrant and firewall adjuster...?

I think that's the only way. Let me look around because I remember reading somewhere that you could try and bend a tab on the quadrant and that would kind of adjust it. But I'm not sire so I'll check if I can't find it again.

Cool, thanks man! Looks like I need to speed up my purchase of a quadrant kit.

Do any of you know if you can change the clutch quadrant without removing the entire pedal assembly?

Yes I've done a few and you dont have to remove the pedal assembly. It's just very uncomfortable to get to.
