Rather than the 1/4 - 1/2 inch that the handbook recommends for the clutch lever play mine has about 1 to maybe 1 1/2 inch travel. I can see where the adjustment takes place but I think I am missing something - there is a threaded pin which passes through the final short lever into the case of the engine - there is no nut at the bottom of this - I have still got a fair amount of adjustment available but how do you take up the slack? Can I tap the thing with a hammer to make it move or does something have to be twisted where the threaded part passes through? Or, should there be a nut at the bottom of the threaded pin which I tighten up? Hope this makes sense.

Many thanks,

Lee

Not sure whose handbook you are reading but the Ford manual calls for 3/4" free travel and that is always with the step plate installed! On the later 8N's you simply pull the small pin out of that short linkage and turn the adjusting rod till correct free travel is obtained. No nut on the bottom of the adjusting link, the top pin stops the threaded part from moving. You should never move threaded adjusters by moving them with a hammer!

You take the pin out of the top of the threaded part, and turn the threaded part to screw up and down as needed.

Thanks!

I assumed the threaded part moved through the lever with a nut at the bottom which you could tighten or loosen to take up slack!
