Just finished fitting a new H/D clutch to our 4Runner and now when you press the pedal its not engaging the clutch fully.Have bled the clutch.Adjusted the rod on the mastercylinder to max length and clutch engages but you only have about 25mm pedal travel from floor to engagement.Vehicle was originaly fitted with a STD clutch.Any ideas??

Hi Nick,
Don't know if this is any help or even on the right track, But some vehicles have an adjustment inside the cab on the actual pedal. From memory my old rodeo was measured from the floor to the pedal and if out of tolerance needed to be adjusted there as well. Maybe worth checking a manual to see if this might be the case?
Sorry can't be more specific,but will look forward to seeing what it turns out to be as I have a Hilux and may need to do something similar one day.

Some clutch plates can only be put in one way, is it the right way

Two things,
I know you said you have bled the cluch but i once had trouble bleeding a cluch and had to draw the fluid through with a large syringe to get all the air out like you do on some motor bikes.

Also when finished seting up the cluch make sure you dont have any pressure on the cluch fork from the mastercylinder rod as this will flog out the thrust bearing very quickly ,ie 5-10,000 km.

Good luck.

Also i noticed short cluch travel on ny Hilux after installing a H/duty cluch and think the extra travel was to create the extra force to compress the stronger springs in the cluch plate, i may be wrong !

I just got used to it.

Thanks all.Think I tracked problem to the mastercylinder itself(maybe leaking back past seals).Going to fit a new one this week,let everyone know once fitted.
