When the clutch pedal...

When the clutch pedal is very stiff does that mean it needs a new clutch or just an adjustment? it does slip and when engaged while driving it takes a long time to pull off.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

2000 international 4700 yh267857

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing yet I'm looking for some guidance. I've had this truck for 3 years and has gone through 3 clutches. Im not sure if that is the actual problem.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not at the moment.

If the pedal does not have 1 1/2"-2" of free play at the top and is catching towards the top you need an adjustment

What if it does have free play but it is stiff and is slipping?
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I was reading online about the flywheel and the adjustment plate. Is that something that would fix this?

If the adjustment is okay and it catches close to the middle but slipping it would be a worn clutch... The flywheel should be resurfaced when doing a clutch to be sure it is in specs for long clutch life. Also a faulty pressure plate or poor driving habits can cause early clutch failure.

Does a stiff pedal mean anything though?

Either a linkage problem or problem in the pressure plate can cause a stiff pedal. If the pressure plate it means a new clutch. Disconnect the linkage and be sure it moves freely.
