View Full Version : Clutch pedal travel

The clutch, on my 50 champ, catches very high in the pedal travel but it does not seem to slip. It has about one inch of free travel when depressing the pedal, which, I think, is about right. Is it normal for the clutch pedal to come up so high before engagement starts?

Thanks,
Dick

It's a matter of adjustment, clutch, pressure plate and flywheel wear and personal preference. As long as it's not slipping under load, I don't see a real problem with it. You could PROBABLY adjust the linkage to make it catch earlier as the pedal comes up.:D

Miscreant at large.

It works just fine and doesn't slip under a load. Just not what i'm used to. I've tried to adjust it so it catches sooner but then the pedal doesn't rise to where it should be when released.

Thanks Mr. Biggs for the feedback.

If the pedal's not coming all the way back up after engagement, quite likely, the pedal return spring's broken or missing altogether!:(

Check the coupling on the clutch pedal shaft. There are two pins in it, each at right angles to the other. Usually one of these pins will break because the zerk fitting in the bellhousing never gets lubricated. radioRoy
