These vehicles use a clutch cable with a unique self-adjuster mechanism built into the cable which compensates for clutch disc wear. No bleeding is necessary or possible. The preload spring maintains tension on the cable. This tension keeps the clutch release bearing continuously loaded against the fingers of the clutch cover assembly. The cable requires no maintenance or lubrication.
