Clutch / Linkage Adjustment
Posted: Mon Apr 13, 2009 7:13:54 PM

We bought a used truck from Ryder, which came with a clutch thats just about the worst I have ever seen out of adjustment...

However, I think the the linkage is out more than the clutch itself.

Whats the protocol on an Eaton clutch / linkage?  Is the linkage supposed to be tight, or have a little slack, then but 2" in the clutch?

1 1/2 to 2 inches in the peddle. 99% of the time the linkage is fine and the clutch itself needs the adjustment. Do you know how to adjust the clutch through the hole on the bottom of the bell housing? If not I could tell you how.

Adjust your clutch to have 1/2 inch between the release bearing and the clutch break, then adjust the linkage so there is 1/8 inch between the clutch fork fingers and the release bearing. The 1/8 inch adjustment should give you the correct travel at the pedal.
