    I know this has been beaten to death but I am experiencing some issues adjusting my master cylinder. I am experiencing the 2G pump up in the clutch. I had my clutch replaced last summer and the master and slave cylinders replaced about 2 weeks ago. I went out of town so I didn't get to drive the car around so I'm just now finding the pump up. The issue I'm running into is I turn the nut on the rod and it just turns and turns but doesn't move. Also the top of my pedal doesn't look like the pictures I've seen. Below is a picture of where the rod connects to the pedal. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    There has been some revisions of the piece that attaches to the pedal, not all of the OEM clutch masters look the same.

    Follow the video. From the sound of your post you are not spinning the actual rod. You need to grab the part of the rod that has no threads with a pair of pliers and rotate it clockwise (If you are underneath the dash looking at it upside down) into the clutch pedal assembly.

    I've seen the jacks video. Is the nut I have to break loose the one on the front of the silver thing? If so, that not won't move. I turn it and turn it and it doesn't move on the threads. I can't see anything else turning that I'd have to hold in place while I turn to break it loose.

    You need to loosen the jam nut that sits between the pedal end and the master itself. You want the nut to move away from the pedal, so it's not preventing the rod from moving in or out.
    If you're turning it the right way and it's not moving toward the firewall, then it's probably stripped.
    Turning the rod is the adjustment the jam nut simply locks it in place.
