Hey Gang

I recently replaced the clutch master cylinder/slave cylinder on my '86 coupe  Since the replacement, I've had to jump the start switch to get the car to crank and start.

The FSM page 8-B-15 gives clutch start switch procedures/adjustment and lists illustration 8B-3; however, this illustration is actually the w/s washer aiming illustration.

 

Any accurate illustrations are greatly appreciated.

Jonathan.....

The only "adjustment" that there is on it is to bend the wire that connects the pedal to the arm on the switch....and that switch is waaaaay up in there! Hard to believe, but it can get out of "adjustment" from simply replacing the master cyl. Moving the pedal without the master cyl pushrod connected can over-extend the lever on the switch, making an "adjustment" necessary.
I'll look in my manuals and see if I can find an illustration....

I emailed you the page...
