Now you know the adjustments will respond.
i agree with this .. but be warned .... getting the helper arm off can be a bear.. this was the problem with mine as it became seized on the shaft and made the clutch impossible to adjust .
it is held in place with a roll pin to stop it dropping down ( which i personally feel is unnecessary ) . I had to drill that bastard out to get it out.. then reinstalled with two seals, one below and one above after putting spline grease on it.

no problems since.
