The clutch on my '91 classic has been engaging at the very top of its travel. The other day I was playing around with it and noticed a bolt right around where the clutch connects to the car. After turning it about 10 turns counter-clockwise, the clutch now engages much lower.

Did I do this properly? I thought I read instructions elsewhere that made this seem like a much more involved task. Is this doing damage to my clutch? I've noticed it doesn't shift quite as smoothly, however that could be my imagination...

What do you guys think?

Where was this nut? I recently adjusted the clutch cable on my NX and had to remove a lot of stuff.. The intake, resonator box and some relays.

It sounds like you did adjust it though, and if your shifting is more difficult you probably overdid it. My clutch was engaging almost at the firewall, and I was having big problems shifting, to the point that I thought my synchronizers were shot. After adjusting the clutch everything got better which leads me to believe that the clutch previously was not disengaging all the way. You might want to adjust the engage point back up a little bit and see if it smoothes your shifting action.

You can see the nut by looking under the pedals, it's just right where the pedal connects to the car.. The clutch seems to completely disengae about 2 inches from the floor, but it still doesn't feel quite as smooth. Anyone know anything about this mysterious bolt?

Hmm.. I don't know about that. I would err on the side of caution and adjust that bolt back to where it was, and then adjust the clutch cable the hard way from under the hood. Call me paraniod, I like to know whats going on in my car.
