I was wondering if someone here would know what is wrong with the
clutch, or if any adjustments are needed. The problem I have is that
the clutch only comes up almost half way back from the floor. It
doesn't come all the way up, unless you put your foot behind the
pedal, and pull it back up.
The real problem is, it doesn't start to catch until about halfway to
3/4 of the way down, making it impossible to shift gears or put it
into a gear without it grinding.
I'm new to clutches so hopefully someone can help.

this clutch has a manual (wrench) adjustment, and you need to add
length to the linkage to allow it to fully disengage, and that will
also solve the pedal height problem. Leave about 3/4" or so "loose"
pedal at the top when adjusting the linkage, do go too far to where
its "tight" against the stop. You want the clutch to be able to fully
engage and not hit the stop for the pedal.
BTW, the Muncie 21 four speed is very classic gearbox, I put one in my
'65 Chevy II that was orginally in a beat up Tempest. We had to
fabricate the linkage to the transplant clutch housing.
