Clutch Pickup point

Quick question,
where does your R380 clutch engage?

Close to the floor board, Midway or at the top of travel?

Defenders don't wear out they just need more parts.

It should be like an other clutch, around the middle of the pedal travel.

Pissing people off on the "net" since 1983.

Land Rover. Turning owners into mechanics since 1948.

The Hydraulic system absorbs the wearing of the clutch. Once the disengagement is at the end of the pedal movement, you have a clear sign of impending clutch wear out and $$ in your future

Or you have a sign of bad hydraulic cylinders.
