I think you can ajust the little rod, that push in to the clutch master cylinder.

you have a little bit of adjustment in the rod between the pedal and the clutch master cylinder.

sounds like your clutch is at the end of its lifespan though.

Ya u should look into replacing it all. I know the clutch kit at the dealer is under 150 and much better than the after market ones u get at the autoparts

Oh and see if you can order the needle bearing input bearing instead of the bronze bushing. They wont list it for the trucks so you will have to get the part number from courtesy nissan. Basically this little guy will quiet operation and you wont crack/ wear out the stupid thing.

there is an adjustment on the pedal, its kind of a pain to get to but its worth getting right. climb under your steering wheel and loosen the bolts and the shaft will spin free, allowing you to move the pedal forwards or back. make sure you dont go too far one way or the other or your clutch wont fully engage/disengage.

There is a rod that comes out of the master cylinder and attaches to the pedal with a clevis. You can loosen the jamb nut on the clevis and shorten or lengthen the rod by turning the rod. This will change the amount of pedal movement required to engage or disengage the clutch. Tightening the rod into the clevis will make the release point be closer to the floor. Loosening the rod from the clevis will make it further from the floor. There are adjustment specs in the FSM for the clutch pedal. Don't forget to tighten back up the jamb nut (10mm).
