Would anyone have an interest in 1970 Jeepster Commando

I've got a 1970 Jeepster Commando that I've been having clutch problems with and my wife says it's time to get rid of it. I replaced the clutch disk, pressure plate, throw out bearing, fork, cable, and fork pivot and the clutch still won't disengage. It runs good with about 94,000 miles (v6). I've read the article about the "hard clutch" on these commandos and re-replaced the throw out bearing and fork pivot with longer ones and it still won't disengage. So, if anyone would have an interest in the Jeep, I'm located in Northern Michigan and willing to sell it at a resonable price. See the pictures on my profile, it's in pretty good shape. Mike

its the bolts on the pressure plate they are too long bottoming out in the threads of the flywheel before pulling the plate down all the way. Check the bolt lengths and make certain you have washers on them. (shortens them up) .
