On the diesel stop they talk about a fix on ebay where you cut the eyelet off and put a new one on but I can't find it anywhere

You can replace the piece but it will brake again. I bought the kit on ebay. you cutt off the end of the shaft and bolt on a new piece that makes a permanet fix. I'll try to find it.

Found it on ebay
Type in "Ford Clutch Rod End" This is what i used and it works perfect. It is a pain in the ### to do but well worth it. Fixed for 3 years so far no problems. Good luck.

It just replaces the eyelet with the bushing with this piece. You cut the end of the shaft off and put this in its place. If you buy it you will understand better.

Like i said before its not the funnest thing to fix all upside down trying to get in that little spot with a saw. But it is well worth it when its done. The best thing that i found to work with cutting it off is the dremal tool with the flex extension cuttoff bit alot faster than a hacksaw. Good luck with it hope it works out for ya.
