    Default flu419 clutch pedal pressure HELP

    our flu419 seems to change gears well without grinding but the clutch pedal is pretty heavy. After I parked from its first job today and got back in our cherokee I thought that I had lost the clutch in the cherokee . So can anybody share an opinion how much force it needs to depress the clutch pedal.
    I checked the linkage in the cab and that has no friction. Could not directly find the slave cylinder location so may be something is up there?

    Thank you ,

    They are heavy clutch pedals. I mean equal to that of a deuce and a half or an older 5 ton. about 3x the force of a normal car would be. I used to always nearly push my F250s clutch thru the floor after exiting a MV. The slave is adjustable

    Hmm. I never thought that my clutch pedals required much force. And I have very bad knees so I'm fairly sensitive to such things.

    haha, nice Simp... yes that is exactly what I did getting back in the cherokee. FLU may be you have to much fun in the 419 to notice the pain in your knees? I am more sensitive because working on the clutch in these seems to be a horror story. Is there any opening where you can actually peak in and see the clutch? I will check the bell housing drain plug tomorrow id something got rusted up in there.

    If anybody has a specification then that would be great.

    Have you flushed your silicone brake fluid? Can and do get water in the system that gums it up. The slave cylinder is visible under the driver side of the cab.
