zf5 clutch linkage.

Hey guys, today i was under my dash wiring in some gauges and notice WOW, my cluch linkage needs some help ASAP.

The clutch linkage goes onto a EYE that is the master cylinder, the eye on my clutch is egged out, and the pin the goes THROUGH the eye is also chaffed all to hell, there is a huge amount of play, everything else looks fine though. there is a broken up clip that just kind of fell apart when i touched it, didn;t see any bushings or anything, what is supposed to be there?

links to a new one would be awesome.

Ford makes a little push in plastic bushing for the rod, its like $3. If the eye is worn it will eat the Ford bushing in less then a month if your lucky. Mine lasted 40 mi. What I did is found a piece on rubber hose that fit snug and put a clamp on it to hold it on. Then you just cut several to length and toss them in the glove box.

^^^^^ Yup. If you catch it early, before the eyelet eggs out, you can use a piece of brass tubing to replace the craptastic plastic one, and a drill stop collar to hold the arm on. But once it gets this bad, the Heim joint is the way to go, since it replaces the egged-out eyelet.

Yeah, unfortunately I didn't catch it on time, the eye is egged so I will go with the fix for that, but then it will at least be fixed, I kinda noticed my clutch felt a little bit higher off the floor then it did when I first bought it, wonder if this is that cause.


I lost the broken clip so i actually just have the eye set over it lol, hasn't poped off yet but Im ready for my clutch to go right to the floor one of these times,

Until the Heim joint kit arrives, the drill stop collar will at least keep the arm from popping out completely.
