    Gotcha. The 4.75" number came about after testing. I kept adjusting until the release was correct, then measured that number, not the other way around.

    Really, the only factors that are variables are the flywheel thickness, pressure plate design, and the length of the throw-out bearing.

    First of most failure is :The clutch pedal is no foot rest!

    Here is a picture from the result! And be sure, to push this arm you must have a foot
    like a mammoth. This arm was a real cable eater before I help a friend!

    Clutch Problem - ROOKIE MISTAKE!

    After doing all that I knew to do, I revisited the adjustment. I've always adjusted the clutch by measuring the stud and never had any problem. With that being said I tried the 4.25" with no better results. You know, if you remove the clutch lever spring and lightly push the lever forward for the 4.25" measurement you wind up with a fairly light clutch pedal.

    Bouncing Speedometer Needle Mystery

    I've had problems with the speedometer needle bouncing for some time and it whined loudly during the cold weather this winter. I finally got around to cleaning up and lubricating another speedometer which appears to have fixed the problem.

    I'm not sure what was causing the speedometer to whine but I believe I've figured out why the needle wasn't steady. Check out the broken speedometer drive shaft in the picture. Probably happened when I topped it out.
