Adjusting clutch engagement. (diagram inside from helms)



Can someone please explain to me which is the actual part I'll be adjusting that will advance or retard the clutch engagement point. Is it clutch switch A? The push rod is just for adjusting where the clutch pedal sits when completely pressed and completely released right; ie the start and end point for the clutch pedal basically.? So do I not need to adjust the push rod if right now it is currently fine?

I basically want to adjust my clutch engagement point so my clutch grabs sooner than it is. Right now it grabs about 1/3 to 1/4 of the way off the floor, I want it to engage sooner than that. Almost instantly on release basically. That's how I used to have it before my swap and I loved it like that.

Thanks guy. Also did a search, there's only a write up for a 5th gen (http://preludeonline.com/showthread.php?t=162200), but the person that made the write up took pictures and described much different things than how the helms look. Well not totally different, but enough for me to raise question to make sure I'm doing it right

TIA guys.

Undo locknut C, screw the pushrod out until the pedal has just a little bit of free play (I put mine at 1mm). Adjusting all the switches is probably not necessary. I didn't bother with it.

One of them is to prevent the car from starting unless you depress the pedal and the other is to disable the cruise control if the pedal is depressed. I think... they might work in conjunction with one another. One of them went bad on my car so I had to put a jumper in the cable to get it to start. My cruise control does not work now.

btw, you might want to reduce the size of that pic in your sig
