Ok, just wanted some thoughts from others before I overthink things and make a mistake...
In the middle of my 4.9L swap ( //www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum2/HTML/129733.html
). I just dry fit the engine into the bay to check some clearances while I work on the exhaust. While it was in place, I figured I'd take a second and hook up the clutch just to check how it feels since it's a Stage III.
Nothing. Foot went right to the floor.
Quick background. I am using the Isuzu tranny, with a Stage III Kupp clutch. During the swap I simply unbolted the slave cylinder when pulling the 2.5 engine and never touched it again until now. The throw out bearing was low mileage so I didn't change it. The Kupp clutch (i.e. pressure plate fingers) is the same thickness as the stock 2.5 clutch. This should have been a simple bolt and replace situation with no adjustments required.
Assuming there wasn't some spontaneous failure of the master cylinder or slave cylinder while it was sitting there, the hydraulic system should be set perfectly. With the slave cylinder piston pushed in fully, there is about an inch and a half gap to the clutch lever. I used a breaker bar on the clutch lever, and clearly I can disengage the using the bar...which seems to indicate the clutch lever is simply in the wrong spot. My confusion is that I never changed anything (...yes I changed the clutch, but it was the same thickness...), so it should already be in basically the correct position. Should I unbolt the clutch lever at the transmission and adjust it there?
What am I missing?
