Adjusting Clutch Master Cylinders

Following a new clutch installation there is nothing worse than experiencing slipping or release problems. Many times installers even begin to believe that the new clutch kit is defective. This is not correct, in most instances! The majority of the time a simple, quick adjustment will alleviate any problems. Most Japanese/Korean imports use an adjustable clutch master cylinder. When a new clutch kit is installed, the master cylinder (Figure 1) needs to be re-adjusted to work properly with this new kit and avoid release and slipping problems.
