I will check it at WOT. My also seems to grab really low.LargeOrangeFont said:Make sure you can bang all the gears at WOT and you should be fine. My clutch starts to grab less than an inch off the floor.
wwmost said:man i wish i knew what the heck i was readingg. my clutch pedel is so long in my gt. is this the same for gt's and cobras? this seems pretty complicated, is it hard to install all these items?
i have a 99 cobra it had a stock adjuster,quadrant, stock clutch and stock cable. I bought a ldc freeplay kit, fiore firewall adjuster and a steeda quick release quadrant. I installed it all as describe in this thread and modified the stock cable peice as in the CORRECT way picture. once everything was buttoned up i had to screw the adjuster all the way(clockwise) into the base in order for the pedal to have a small amount of slack. im pretty sure its the original 80k mile clutch and i am thinking since the less wear on a clutch and the whether its a stock clutch or an aftermarket clutch makes for a variable in deciding to modify the cable one way or the other. Once i modified the cable as in the INCORRECT way picture i had room to adjust the cable to near the middle way on the firewall adjuster.
i didnt buy the pedal height adjuster but with the CORRECT way i wouldnt have been able to use it cause i couldnt put any slack in the cable.
This is a great thread i just wanted to let people know that some will need to modify cable spacer differently.
Hmmm, I'm thinking if your TOB is touching your flywheel, you have bigger issues that cannot be addressed in this thread...
If your tob is riding on the pressure plate fingers you will go through tobs like crazy, there should be a 1/8 -1/16" gap between the two when the clutch is engaged. You can pull the cover plate off the bell housing to make sure the tob is not riding on the p/p.
Great write up, this is a must do mod for most of the members on here. Makes adjusting the clutch so easy.
:lol: I have to agree with you on that one
Do you have a jack/jack stands as well? The ramps will make it real tight under the car. But jack it up once you're on the ramps and support it with the jack stands and you should be able to get back there
I have a set but I'll need to purchase another. Shouldn't be a problem though. I'll eventually need them for other mods. Maybe I should do the subframe connectors first then it will be "safer" to get under the car. I know there's a writeup out there on where to put the jack stands. I need the search button back!!!
I never had this kit.I ended up taking this kit off because I couldn't get the TOB to not ride on the PRESSURE PLATE fingers. If I did get it adjusted off of the fingers, I couldn't get a long enough throw for proper dis-engagement.
