Shown in the picture below,there are 2 nuts used to adjust the pedal height.To adjust the clutch pedal height, loosen the locknut on the clutch switch until it no longer touches the pedal. Then loosen the locknut on the clutch pushrod. Turn the pushrod to adjust pedal height then tighten the locknut. Turn the switch until it contacts the pedal arm, then turn it an additional 3/4 turn. Tighten the lock nut.

You should also pay close attention to the clutch free play,to my knowledge it should be around 10mm of free play,so have your ruler ready.

Serial number could be found on the transmission itself,as far as swapping transmissions.F series are interchangable because its almost the same motor,but you want to switch your manual transmission to an auto?

If you slightly press on your clutch with one finger,you should notice a bit of play,called "free play" this is normal and should be around 10mm distance back and forth without putting pressure.
