Well I went to both extremes on the adjustment and I could feel that "sweet
spot"  move around as I adjusted the cable.  I am not sure any other way to
explain it.  It is the point you reach in the clutch travel where if you
pressed your foot any further to the floor, the clutch starts to grab and if
you release your foot, it starts to grab ( like it should )  Right now I
have it so that it occurs when the pedal is all the way to the floor.  When
I loosen it up more than that, if I press too hard, it seems like the clutch
is re-engaging.  My current setting is about 1/8" clack in the cable ( if
you pull up on the clutch lever  ) and there is lot's of room to adjust
either way.
