CABLE



The clutch cable can be adjusted at the cable bracket where the cable is attached to the side of the transaxle housing. To adjust the length of the cable, remove the circlip and clamp, slide the cable end in the direction desired and then replace the circlip and clamp into the nearest gutters on the cable end. The cable should not be stretched out straight nor should it have right angle kinks in it. Any curves should be gradual.

PEDAL HEIGHT



Adjust the pedal with the return stop bolt, so that its pad is on the same level as the brake pedal pad.

Check to be sure that the stroke of the pedal is 3-5.4 in. (128-138mm). Check the clutch release fork stroke. It should be 0.67 in. (17mm).
