Re: Clutch Pedal Linkage Questions
I believe that is a very common problem for the old chev manual clutch linkages.
The rod which connects from inside the cab to the bell crank wears on both contact surfaces, The nub(? teh piece sandwhiched between the two jam nuts) on the adjuster rod wears out like the upper rod does, and the bell crank itself gets worn out at the ball/socket joints.
It may bedifficult to find clutch linkages at the wrecker that are not worn similarily to yours (and mine), but they're out there. And you should be able to just replace it all.
Hope that helps, I'm not sure if you can get these parts from GM anymore, or if guys like LMC Truck would have it.
Anyone got a link to those heim-jointed rods for GM clutches???
