Squeeky clutch pedal

Anyone have any good suggestions for something to do to/put on my super squeeky clutch pedal? It's loud and annoying. Some kind of grease? Thanks

I apply grease to all the pivot points. Quiets things down and smoothens out the clutch pedal action.

The bell crank has a grease nipple on it for the ball joint pivots. Have you greased it?

Haven't greased it yet because I need to get some grease. I assume pb blaster wouldn't be very effective?

First time I greased mine it took about 1/3 tube! It was dry.

Any chance you have a photo of this bell crank grease nipple? Not sure where it is or what it looks like

The bell crank goes between the body and the engine. It has a ball and socket joint on each end and a grease gun nipple about half way across it on the bottom side.

These bellcrank fittings need to be greased as well as the tube itself needs to be filled with grease.





Plus, squeaks may be coming from the pedal return spring area and you might try stuffing the spring with a piece of foam or wiping it down with grease also.



I used rod ends and real bronze bushing on every pivoting part of the clutch assembly when I had it apart for replacement. You can do either or and make squeak noises disappear forever and wearing out the parts will be far and few between with these simple upgrades.
