    the clutch feels like its either on or off, it engages at the very end of the pedal travel. so id like to adjust it. but how? i see no linkage to mess with down by the clutch fork or anything, annd inside i dont see anything to adjust on the pedal itself. its an 88 with a 465, 350,208 if it matters.....

    Sounds like you have a hydraulic clutch, and if so, there is nothing to adjust.

    Check the fluid reservoir (drivers side fender wall I think). If it's fine, then it's either normal, or you have a bad component (clutch itself, clutch master cylinder, etc ...)

    Good Luck,

    Thomas.

    I stand behind what Stoop said. Check the reservoir for fluid level. '85 on up manuals used hydro clutches and you cannot adjust them.

    Now my 87 has the hydraulic clutch and the rod that goes from the slave to the clutch arm is adjustable. I adjust it so that I disengage clutch about 2" from the floor. Allows for more free play and less wear on throwout bearing. I have about 1" play in the pedal before the clutch arm begins to move.

    A good firm grip is my idea of gun control!
