I just put a new King Cobra clutch kit in my car and now I have no clutch adjustment. With the adjustable clutch cable loose in the clutch fork the clutch still catches way high. Anybody have any ideas what my problem may be?
I've got an alum quadrant with the cable adjustment at the clutch fork and there is still alot of threads on the adjusting rod. If I was out of thread I would buy another cable. I was wondering if the pressure plate would be bad. The quadrant and cable would adjust with the old set-up. I had the tranny out so I though I would go ahead and replace the clutch ass'y.
I'm not sure why I am the only one replying to this, however, here are a few questions
Where does the clutch pedal sit in relation to the gas pedal?? A clutch pedal with a lot of slack in the cable will tend to sit much higher than the gas pedal.
With the cable loose, do you feel slack then it gets harder all of a sudden?? In other words, can you feel the slack in the cable till it gets tight??
I think your cable may be routed wrong, causing binding. What you are describing is an adjustment that is too tight. Also, keep in mind, that it is supposed to engage past half way up.
I really think that your cable may be binding somewhere. If it was my car, I would ditch the adjustable cable, get an oem cable, and use a firewall adjuster.
Also, crawl under their, remove the cover over the cable, and see if you can see the pressure plate and throwout bearing. Have a buddy step on the clutch pedal, while you watch it's movement. Is it getting full movement?? If you can positively eliminate the cable setup, then you likely have an internal problem.
