Sorry for the delay. The shims were factory installed. I have some used ones if you decide you need them.

Peace,

Reviving an old thread

I had the same issue with the clutch pedal much higher than the brake. Solution was as others have suggested and I trimmed the threaded pushrod (a little at a time) until pedal height was in spec 6.2-6.5" (I think) off the floor.

Question: Some have talked about a design flaw with the brake and clutch return springs connecting to the clevis pin causing excessive wear. Of course I can't find the threads with the solution to drill a small hole in the pedal arm to attach the spring. Curious if anyone can share pictures and location/size of hole to drill.
