Trying to do some preventive maintenance on my sillyspeed. No problems, but just to be ahead of it and keep it healthy! I have checked the clutch travel, and it's at 30.5 mm, so that needs adjustment. But I don't know if the free version of MES can be used to do clutch calibration?
the clutch rod length adjustment is a spanner job, but you have to keep the MES active and the laptop in the engine bay to see the result,
28 mm is the ideal , but .5 les or more is not crucial !
you need two spanners (flat ones) 19mm and 17mm (if I recall correctly), and preferably small hands (let you girlfriend or wife do it)
