Release bearing question

I am trying to adjust my clutch on my 39 WC.There is too much gap between the pressure plate fingers and the release bearing, about a half inch. The fingers are adjusted all the way out,is there any adjustment in the release bearing or do I need to rebuild or replace the pressure plate to get the quarter inch gap? Any help would be sincerely appreciated, thanks,Steve

The rod should be threaded where it attaches to the pedal. I don't have a WC manual so I'm not sure. If it can not be adjusted, then the new clutch disc is the fix.

Duey,I checked my clutch rod assembly but I could not see how to adjust it. The rod is held in place by a locking bolt which seems to go into a indentation in the rod. The bolt is pointed on it's end and I don't see any other adjustment.

Pedal free travel should be 1/2" to 1" measured at the level of the top side of the frame channel.
Adjustment can be made on the pedal rod or on the pressure plate fingers. You might try the pedal rod and if that won't do it, it means a new clutch disc is needed. Duey
