Clutch push rod refurb!
« on: May 19, 2018, 09:34:33 PM »
some of you probably do it already but maybe not , but if you're a skinflint like me or can't be bothered wait for a new one ,if it's got the grooves worn in it where the seal has been just turn it around and reuse it ,,of course you have to make the first 10mm narrower  to fit in the cable arm thingy , I put it in a drill which I put in a vice then angle grind it narrower  ,easy peasy .
oops i think my powerbands snapped .

Has the same problem on a 400 I had once, got a mate to build up with weld then I re ground it, that worked too.
