F-8000 Clutch Adjustment

Hello all. As some of you may know I have been working on a 7.3 IDI motor and some of you have helped a great deal. Now I have some other questions. We have an 85 F-8000 with a 3208 Cat motor. 5-speed tranny with a split rear. There is a clutch adjustment in the clutch they say, but am not sure how to do this correctly. I know there is a linkage adjustment, but need to know how to internally adjust the clutch, could someone shed some light on this topic? Thanks!!!

No it is not that style. It seems to have 2 bolts as a retainer, then an adjusting screw/bolt in the center. Am just not sure tho, dont want to mess with it till I know.
