Clutch question

Should there be free play in the clutch pedal?

If yes, how much?

Is there a clutch adjustment instruction to follow?

I found the Pelican instruction to replace my clutch.

Thanks in advance for the help

No pedal free play apart from a small amount on the master cylinder rod.
No clutch adjustment required - any wear is taken up automatically by the hydraulic actuation....

Thanks Steve for the information.

This is my first Porsche, still learning about the car.

If you have not done it already, bleed the clutch hydraulic system. It uses the brake resevoir for fluid

Uh, you better have a small amount of free play otherwise the clutch will never fully release and you will burn up that clutch in a hurry!
