    yungin?? anything like an onion?? have never needed to adjust a clutch on something like what he is talking about. nor would i own a cutlass.
    only reason i adjust the clutch in the big truck is with normal wear over the process of 500,000 miles, one would expect some play there. i have to lockup that tool as the driver would be underneath there torqueing her down at the drop of a hat. fixing to break his hand off if he does one more thing to that truck.

    and on yours you adjust inside the housing not the linkage or it becomes a mess, to many people adjust the linkages instead of the clutch

    I drove an 01 sterling rented from ryder, if the mechanic was lazy he would mess with the linkage cause he was too lazy to do it right

    Well, all joking aside, you're NOT supposed to suck on parts.

    wasnt sucking. to gain access to the top filter, you must remove the lower filter and then remove the top filter and snake it around the mount for the lower filter. when you do fuel filter changes on big trucks, you must fill them with diesel. when i tried to snake it back up, the stupid thing fell to one side and poured fuel all over me. my mouth was open and everything as one might say. it was open because i was cussing.
