I just bought machine but clutch pedal seems to push easily...somewhat mushy
Mechanic: John Oliver,
 replied 6 years ago

man i hate to say it but something in that clutch assembly has let loose. may be the pressure plate itself has failed and not releasing the disc. basicly you cant get it into gear because the trans wont uncouple from the flywheel via the clutch. wish i had better news or an easier fix. that peddle should be fairly firm

Mechanic: John Oliver,
 replied 6 years ago

i guess its worth a shot but if its that bad i dont think it will help. adjust so you have aprox. 2 inches of free travel
