Default legacy turbo clutch pedal travel

so, other owners of Legacy turbo's -

how much free clutch pedal travel do you have?

mine goes quite a bit (about 1/2 travel) before i know I'm disconnecting. Letting the pedal up - the clutch engages very close to the floor.

any ideas?

air in system?
bad damper?
bad activator?
worn master cyllinder?
play with adjuster on end of master cyllinder rod?

tia,

Roger

there is very little play in my clutch on my legacy, the overall pedal movement is 1/3 what the movement is on my obs. it is amazing the difference in the cable and hydro. if you are going to the dinner on the 24th, you can drive my car and see if its like yours or not.

ok cool - cause there is some other stuff I want to check to.

mainly, why my clutch return spring keeps coming off of the fork.

I did see this one the act site:
On some applications when a Heavy Duty ACT pressure plate is installed the engage/release point may become closer to the floor. This change may be due to flex caused from the added forces placed on the pressure plate and linkage from the increased pressure. A disc that has excessive marcel could also cause this change. The marcel is the wavy metal between the linings that allow the disc to gradually engage. If the marcel is too wavy it takes extra travel to release and engage.

In most cases, a small adjustment of the master cylinder pushrod reducing pedal freeplay will cure the problem. This adjustment is made by screwing the pushrod farther into the master cylinder to allow it to actuate the cylinder sooner. You may also desire to increase pedal travel by adjusting the pedal stop (when equipped). You should never preload the master cylinder. Good repair manuals include instructions and adjustment specifications, which is a great starting point. Adjustments are not usually needed if you are using sintered metallic linings because the lack of a marcel allows for quicker release/engagement.

There are rebuild kits for like $40 - new cyllinder is $150...
