Re: [T3] clutch cable, pedal stops.

Item 1: Yes, if your clutch hasn't needed adjustment for a long time and
now does suddenly, you probably have a clutch cable starting to fray.

Thanks Russ. Guess I'll go out and get a cable. I suppose I should have already had one. :)

Item 2: You shouldn't have to bend it. You should be able to lift the
bottom edge, and then finagle it out without bending it.

And replacing it will give me a chance to try and get the backing plate out more nicely.

might try using a vice grip on the nut side and wedging it so you don't loose
the entire setting, as the brake pedal stop plate only has to move a little bit.
You just need something to lever over the plate. I hope this helps.

Thanks bob.
I think mines' already loose though, as it's just a nut with washers.. and
the floorboard seems to be slotted now, as the whole thing slightly moves.

I need to drive this one right now, so I'm hesitant to touch it and
make it worse, and be in a state where I need welding to be able to get it
drivable again.

Someone had a Kennedy clutch in there.... they always tear the stop plate
out of the floor among other things. You can remove it and bend the tang if
you dont want the pedal as far forward, or loosen it and slide it back and
forth. I eliminated about half my clutch pedal travel as it does no good.
So long as you can completely disengage the clutch, and then an inch or so
extra your fine. You also need the freeplay of coarse too.

Thanks Keith,

Yeah, I have plenty of freeplay to get rid of at the front of the brakes
and the clutch.

I don't understand what you mean by being able to "remove it and bend the tang"
at the moment, I would like to repair it the easiest way possible. as I've got
a lot of type 3 tasks lined up, and i want to be driving this one so I'm interested
in ideas.

i don't think anyone ever had a kennedy clutch in there. as far as I know
I'm the "2nd." [ or 3rd.. i purchased it from the 2nd, who had it for a week,
and didn't transfer title. ] owner, and I think I have the stock engine which
i had rebuilt. fuel injection and all.
