Samurai Clutch Adjustment

I just picked up an 88 Samurai this weekend and everything seems to be ok, accept there was a horrible noise every time you pressed and let-go of the clutch pedal. Seemed like the cable was making a loud grinding noise. Anyway, I pulled the cable out from the clutch pedal and sprayed as much lube down the cable as I could. Seemed to fix the noise, however I now had another issue.

About 2 inches before the pedal was completely pressed, it just drops to the floor. There still is tension, but not like when you initially press the pedal. Just guessing, I would say that it's not adjusted properly.? Anyone know where to find a good tech article on how to properly adjust the clutch?

Good article at:

Some folks believe that the factory clutch cable is better than others. All clutch cables stretch eventually. Thinner cables have some spring to them that seems to give the clutch a slightly uncertain feel, IMHO.
