My 86 has the self adjusting mechanism.  To re-adjust I do the 
following.  1.  Contort yourself to where you can get your arms under the 
dash somewhat freely.  2.  lift up on the clutch pedal (it should move 
about 1/2 - 1 inch upward).  3.  find the plastic, self-adjusting pawl under 
the dash (the funny white arch-looking thing with the teeth on it...above 
the brake pedal slightly toward the console) and pull/rotate the front 
(closest to the firewall) of it downward.  4.  Let go of the clutch 
pedal...it should fall freely about half way to the floor.  5.  Press the 
clutch pedal a couple of times...you should hear a ratcheting sound as it
