And save/replace that little rubber snubber at the end of the rod, it keeps noise from happening as the clutch fork is being worked in & out.
Huh? I am pretty new to fixing my own cars and do not know what you are talking about other than OEM parts. I will do a bit of googleing today to see what parts I need to order. If you have some links I would love to check them out.
As always though, I appreciate your response. I have looked over a lot of threads and its great that experienced guys like yourself are willing to offer advise to greenhorns like me.
