Default Adjustable clutch stop

I wondered why this was missing from my '85 when I bought it. Most other manual transmission cars I've seen from other OEMs have them.

Lets you know where the clutch is totally disengaged, instead of just pushing all the way to the floor 'just in case'. Adjust it with a lot of room for feathering, or closer for faster shifting ('85-up ) from less time spent disengaging/engaging the clutch. I'm able to sit a bit farther away from the steering wheel now that I don't have to push to the floor.

It appears that single disk clutches ('87-'95) need a lot less throw to disengage compared to the doubles ('78-'86), and can have a lot of dead space taken out.

I reckon it would be ideal for Colin's new Super Shifter.
