Question Can you adjust the clutch to get a bit of extra life out of it

Hey Guys..
I am looking at a 83 944 for a Daily driver.. and was wondering one thing tho. I know lots about the 911 but not much about the 944 can the clutch be adjusted to get a little bit more bite out of the clutch?

Thanks in advance.

No, it's hydraulic. I adjusts as you go along, just add more fluid.

???

Very difficult to "adjust" a rubber center clutch disk that has come apart.

The 944 clutch "IS" or it "AIN'T".

Note: A separated rubber center clutch disk has a noticeable amount of movement from acceleration to deceleration and a loud clank at each end of movement. The replacement is a spring center disk. Besides having to take half the drive train out it's not that difficult to do. In many cases you can get away with just replacing the disk.
