It seems a lot of people are asking how to adjust their clutches and although this post was in a couple of threads I decided to just put it by itself as a STICKY to help finding it a little easier. Let me know if anything needs to be added. A special thanks to AJL719 for providing the picture for this.


I hope AJ doesn't mind me using his picture for this because I borrowed it. I can't remember off the top of my head what size bolt that is, I think 17mm, but you remove that bolt and inside you will find a set screw with a lock nut, which I think is a 12 or 13mm. With your transmission in first gear go ahead and break the lock nut loose. Now go ahead and use the Phillips screw driver and completely remove the set screw and lock nut. You will not mess anything up doing this. Now after you remove it take the lock nut off of the set screw, this will ensure that they both move freely which will make it easier to adjust. Once you have separated them go ahead and put the lock nut back on the set screw just a few threads and reinsert the assembly back into the hole only using your fingers. Now tighten the set screw where you barely feel it touch the plates inside of the clutch. While holding the set screw with the screw driver use your fingers and snug the lock nut up. Now double check the set screw and make sure it is just barely snug against the plates still, then loosen it about an eighth of a turn and use a wrench to slightly tighten the lock nut against the set screw. Once you are sure that they are somewhat locked together take a socket and snug it up really well to make sure it isn't gonna loosen up on you. Now replace the cover nut and try it out and see if it does the same thing or if it fixed it.
I'm sorry for the long explanation but it is just how I describe things.

Nope, i don't mind at all Thomas. If it helps someone in knowing what to look for and it's helpful i don't mind at all. If you need to use any other of my pictures for other helpful hints feel free. We are all here to help each other out any way possible.
