clutch adjustment

Postby Rob in NH » Sun Feb 16, 2020 7:35 pm

I replaced the clutch on the 47 , adjusted the fingers and now I don't have any free play. Should I readjust the fingers or the clevis?

People on here have said they needed to make the pressure plate finger height about 1 1/8", on the Cubs with the internal free play adjustment.

You didn't say what height you set the fingers to.
You could try setting them to 1 1/8", or a little lower than the 1 1/4" height for the Cubs with the external free play adjustment.

Then if there is not enough pedal free play, you will need to adjust the clevis. :)
