If it wasn't engaging right at the bottom of travel beforehand he was
telling porkies. However, the clutch is self-adjusting but wear in the
mechanical linkages in the pedal box can cause quite a lot of 'lost motion',
I calculated about 1" at the pedal on my roadster before I welded up and
filed out the hole in the pedal and replaced the clevis-pin and push-rod.
