Need some feedback... Working on a friends 1999 1500 and when I picked it up I noticed a very late engagement of the clutch - that is to say, the lever is almost all the way out before the clutch engages...
If you have little movement of the lever and push rod before you feel resistance in the lever and just a tiny bit of pull on the lever from that point until the clutch disengages it's working as designed.
Just to recap, your complaint is that the engagement point is to far from the grip right?
Does your friend have small hands and wants the engagement point closer to the grip or is this just you chasing ghosts?
