Clutch adjustment

Post by Deckhand45 »



Was fixin to leave this morning to go on a run with friends and my clutch quit. After struggling it back into the driveway I figured "fix it simple". Clutch adjustment at the throwout arm. Popped the cap, and found there is interference with frame crossmember. So got the 180° and 90° bent screwdrivers out. Nope. Had to make a 45° bent screwdriver to do it. Took awhile.....
Anyone else had a clutch slipping so bad suddenly that it won't engage? Suddenly? And if so, is this a "bad sign"?
Is a teardown immanent?? It engages now but had a LOT of adjustment to do it.
Thanks in advance!!
