If you mean the rods, no. They have no effect on the clutch. If you mean the adjustable bolt that rides on the cam of the brake lever shaft, you want the clutch either on or off, not riding (slipping) in between. That bolt should be adjusted so the lever straight up gives full neutral. It just applies or releases the clutch. See Page 246 in the Ford bible for instructions (with pictures) on adjusting the clutch.

Steve, I meant the bolt that rides on the cam. Thanks for advice. John

Often the link between the clutch pedal and the clutch arm is worn to the point that it is impossible to adjust the clutch properly. I've made several longer L - fittings to compensate for the worn parts on Model T's over the years. This makes it possible to properly adjust the clutch even with worn clevis and clutch arms. Just make one about 1/2" longer than the original.

To start with try adjusting the clutch as per the Ford shop manual.
