: The thing is, even if I cut off a quarter inch from the bolt, it wouldn't go in any further.
: You see, the red rubber stop and the nut are screwed all the way down.
: One solution would be to shave down the rubber stop and trim down the bolt (on the rubber stop end) but i'd rather not.

: : : I've had my uuc clutchstop installed for a week now and I love it. The problem is, 1st gear and reverse have been a lot more difficult to engage. (The clutchstop is in as far as it will go). I can correct the problem by forcing the clutch down to compress the rubber but I'd rather not.

: : : Any similar experiences? Advice?

: : : Thanks in advance.

: : What I did with mine was take out my trusty dremel tool, and cut off about a quarter inch from the bolt...Now, I can truely adjust it...Before, I found, like you, that even screwed all the way in, I wanted it to go in more, hence the cutting. Try it.

Let me understand this...You say you can screw it in so far that the red rubber is resting on the ground, and, its STILL to high?! You truely are in trouble then! Usually, what happens is the bolt portion is too long, so naturally, by sawing that off, when its screwed in as far as it will go, its now a quarter inch further down, hence, the peddle goes down a bit further, etc. I did mine with Ron Stygars clutch stop, and here, we dont have a thick red stopper...No, we have a thin black stopper like stock, so it wasnt an issue....If your red thing is so thick as you say, then it really doesnt sound very adjustable, and if I were you, I'd return it to UUC, and order Rons, but tell him to lop off 1/4 inch before he sends it to you, which he'll do..
