Clutch Adjustment
« on: July 25, 2007, 02:31:33 PM »
The clutch pedal on my 1979 must be depress all the way to the floor in order to shift smoothly.
The entire clutch was replaced i.e. pressure plate, throwout bearing, slave and master and hoses about 1000 miles ago by an MG shop. Is there an adjustment at the clutch master cylinder or is the clutch non- adjustable? ??? ???

Hi Tom,

 Sorry, the clutch is not adjustable.  I would check all the fluid levels and connections for any leaks or air getting into the hydraulic system.  Try bleeding the system again to see if there's any improvement.

Also, if the master and/or slave cylinders were rebuilt as opposed to replaced, even if done professionally (there's a reason none of the catalogs offer rebuilt clutch hydraulics anymore), I would take a good look at their operation and possibly consider an upgrade to new.  You might want to contact the shop you had the work done at to help.

Hope that helps you.  Good  luck.
