    I just put a 3 inch body lift on my 75 f-250. I had to exstend the clutch rod that runs down through the floor of the cab. when i disconnected the rod a torpedo shapped piece of metal which i later learned slips over a piece of threaded rod where it goes into the clutch. Which way do i turn the nut to adjust it? I messed up the adjustment when I was trying to figure out where the threaded rod went. The clutch will engage enough to put it in gear but when you put it to the floor it does not spring back up?:confused: So my real question is which way do i need to adjust the adjuster and why does the clutch not spring back to original position?

    Thanks

    Don't know which direction to turn, but it sounds like the adjuster rod needs to be longer, to give your pedal less free play. It sounds like the linkage has gone over center due to too much travel, lengthening the rod should fix it
