Wanted: Clutch Fork 'pin'

Post by Stinkwheel »

You know the one, that sits between the actuating arm and the actual clutch fork.

Suitable for a 1993 19n/a diesel.

It appears the new purchase has lost this somehow with its failure and slack in everything.

Pretty urgent please, anyone got one they could bung in the post?

Hi, Easy to make one up from a suitable bolt.



Adjust the nut/bolt about half way of it's travel.
Pull the arm apart.
Measure the distance between the arm and the cupped bolt.
Select a bolt or rod of suitable diameter and length.
Cut off the bolt head.
Form convexed shape to both ends.
Grease both ends.
Adjust As required.
Bingo....

Hint:
Used this method a few times now, when the adjustment is all used up.
Making a longer rod, extends the life of the clutch many many miles..

Just measured the one I have, 43mm from end of part spherical to ditto ie total length before rounding.
Should give you something to work with. Oh and Ø8mm so any old M8 bolt (8.8 grade) with smooth section would do nicely :)
