First time adjusting new bands. Went thru the Adjusting for free neutral and feel good about achieving "neutral" . Issue is low pedal sticking to floor. Hogshead refurbished using new shafts and cams. My clutch linkage has side movement when engaged. Hope you can see video. Suggestions?

My guess is that the pedal support cams may have been swapped around during reassembly. Sometimes when that happens, the pedals hang up like you have described.

Low pedal sticking to the floor is a symptom of the low speed linkage going "over center". There are two ways to address this:

1) Adjust the low band tighter so that the low pedal doesn't go as close to the floorboards. Depending on how far you have to go, it may cause the low band to drag and spoil your "free neutral".

2) The low speed link is too short for your combination, you'll have to fabricate a longer low speed link, like Royce did in this thread:

Some side movement of the clutch linkage is normal- watch the low pedal when you depress it, it moves sideways as it climbs up its cam.

The best way to post a video is to post it on Youtube, then copy and paste a link to the Youtube video into the forum, like this:

Hope this helps. :-)
