Default 2005 PT Convertible shifter issue


Just bought a 2005 PT Convertible with the base 2.4L standard motor, & a 5spd transmission. I have a couple of questions concerning it, tho I really can't argue with the price or mileage on it.

1. The clutch pedal disengages/engages almost on the floor, & after driving it for a bit, it gets better in distance. Could this be air in the line? The clutch bucket (fluid fill thingy) is full to the brim of clean fluid. Some talk of an adjustment screw somewhere under the dash, but I can't find it or a photo of it.

2. How many parts are interchangeable from my 2001 Limited 5spd (my wonderful car that I've had for the last 11 years, but now has a shot motor do to "crank walk")? I'm turning the 2001 into a tow-behind trailer, so the entire front end will be cut off, & I'll then have a surplus of parts in my basement (cleaned & polished). I bought a brand new clutch kit for the 2001, & if I need to replace the clutch, can I use the same clutch kit for the 2005?

3. The specs on the 2005 are: Electric Blue with a Black Vinyl top, 5spd, 2.4L base motor, & only 62k miles. Last owner was a 20-something kid who didn't need it anymore, & I bought it. I'm the 3rd owner. The original owner was a 60-something retiree who pretty much drove it on sunny days only. The undercarriage of it is mint. Not a speck of surface rust anywhere.
