CLUTCH PEDAL FREE PLAY

If free play is not as specified, loosen equalizer bar-to-clutch release lever rod lock nut. Turn equalizer bar-to-clutch release lever rod until specified free play is achieved. 2. Ensure disengagement height is correct when clutch pedal is fully depressed. Minimum disengagement height is 1.5" (41 mm). Tighten equalizer bar-to-clutch release lever rod lock nut to 9-12 ft. Lbs.
