I have a question that I am sure someone can answer for me. My clutch seems to work fine. It doesn't slip and my TT seems to go down the road just fine. My question is that my clutch pedal seems to have to travel a long ways before the clutch engages (appox the last 1" to 2"). If I would try to adjust it which way would I have to turn the screws to make it engage sooner? I have read the suggested method and I still would like someone with experience to give me their opinion.
Sounds pretty normal to me.
I've only had my T for a little over a year, so I don't qualify as an expert, but if your high clutch doesn't slip and you have a good, free neutral and a considerable distance on the pedal between low band engagement and high clutch engagement, consider yourself blessed!
Thanks Mark. Yes I do have a good free neutral. Yes the clutch engages and I don't seem to have slip. That is why I asked the question as I have never had something to compare it to.
I'm with Mark. Leave it alone. Sounds perfect to me.
It sounds to me like your low pedal linkage is out of adjustment, and you are wasting clutch travel.
Any other comments could be very helpful.
Thanks for being there for me.
If you want to check your low pedal linkage adjustment, here is a description of the procedure that has been posted several times in the forum:
If you have a standard Model T clutch, you should push it almost to the floor for low. It locks up in low between 1" and 1 1/2 " above the floorboard. And all the way back is high. The pedal will stop moving when you reach high gear and about 1 inch below high gear you will find neutral. I have heard of some TT's with auxiliary transmission which have the low band removed. In that case it would work like the clutch in a modern stick shift. It would still be in gear with the pedal all the way back.
