Default Clutch adjustment on a dump truck?

It's a Peterbilt and the guy said the clutch has to be adjusted at times.

What's the complaint, grinding trying to put it in gear, slipping ?

It should have 1-11/2 inches of free play, and if the pedal is pushed all the way down, it should stop before it hits the floor, like about a 1/2 inch...that means it's hitting the clutch brake.

Thanks RAF,
No complaint, just something new to me, I've never had to adjust a clutch after installation.
It has a clutch brake too? To stop the trans shafts to get into gear easier?

Most all of the big trucks use a pull style clutch, the clutch brake is splined to the input shaft & goes between the throw out bearing & front of the trans. It slows the input shaft down to be able to get it into gear, 1st or rev. If the linkage has been messed with, you usually have to adjust it for free play & clutch brake. There's an internal ring where you can move the throw out bearing towards or away from the trans to get the spec, then the linkage if need be. Normally a 16" dual disc clutch.

The newer truck have hydraulic clutches, normally have to stroke the pedal 20 times or so & it'll set it's self. They are usually 17 or 18" single or dual disc clutch.
