Installed the clutch adjustment kit from AM today. Everything went on fine but I'm not sure how to make the clutch shorter and engage sooner. The way we set it was half way on the cable, half way on the adjuster, and on the first quadrant hook closest to the firewall. Need to know what to do to get it to engage closer to the floor. Thanks guys

The correct way to do it is to get the clutch pedal height adjuster that I describe in this article: Clutch. You can also do it by loosening the firewall adjuster and giving the clutch cable a lot more slack, but it's going to feel very sloppy and it's not safe or recommended.

I see what you are saying in that write up. To clear it up though, the more slack inbetween the cable and clutch fork=pedal engagement closer to the floor?

Repped btw

More slack via turning the firewall adjuster clockwise (loosening the clutch cable tension) until your clutch gets closer to the floor. Many people do it, though it's not something I'd recommend.

Turning the adjuster out will pull more slack from the pedal and make it engage higher. Spinning it in(closer to the firewall) makes it loose and engages closer to the floor.

I could probably afford to loosen it just a bit then because right now it is snug on the fork with no slack whatsoever...

So the MM and Jegs pedal height adjuster will retain the function of the cruise control and 2-step, correct? And the UPR and Steeda doesn't?
