A few members..(shox ) went and bought a clutch stop from america for £9.50.. its basically just a bolt but they try fob you off with some poo talk so i decided ide make one... And it looks a lot more sturdy than their one!
Heres what they are selling..
Went to my local nut and bolt type place and got:
1 x 10mm threaded rod connector.
1 x 10mm threaded rod or bolt.
Cost me a pound..
Tools you will need:
Vice is handy.
- I first took the old clutch stop out.
- Then screwed it into the connector.
- Then inserted the bolt into the connector.
- Cut the bolt/rod leaving about 25mm out of the connector.
- Fit it to the car and turn the engine on and engage 1st gear.. If its stiff then dont force it take it back out and chop more of the bolt off.
- Keep adjusting until the connector is flush with the floor. This will give you the tiniest bit of travel before the clutch engages.
- If you find it too long still then you will have to cut the connector.
- If your happy with the results then loctite the bolt/rod into the connector but i didnt loctite the old clutch stop incase i wanted to remove it.
