    Default clutch linkage

    I am looking for the rubber parts for the clutch linkage for my '80 Scout II with 304 and T-19 (mech linkage).

    When I removed the transmission to rebuild it, I found that the rubber parts in the linkage have completely disintegrated.

    Superscoutspecialists sells a "clutch pedal bushing kit", but looking at the one picture, it does not seem to be the correct part. My local CSK had the throwout bearing, but no listing for the rubber parts.

    To elaborate, there is a rubber bushing inside the pivoting rod that runs between the bell housing and the frame. It has a ball on either end and is filled with grease. There is also a rubber bushing that seems to keep the thing centered. Without it, the clutch seems to work OK, but there is a clattering noise from the vibration. Also, the transfer case shift lever has a similar rubber part that is in bad condition.

    Thanks again

    The bushings that Super Scouts sell are plastic; I just bought the exact thing you're describing from them after I talked with a salesman about it. It cost me 12.00 for the set of four plastic bushing halves and the metal retainer. If you call them, ask for Bob; he's the parts guy who really knows his stuff.

    Thanks for the info, it really helps. On closer examination after cleaning out the old grease, it looks like the rubber "bushings" are actually pieces of braided rubber tubing. I am guessing a previous mechanic did some improvising instead of getting the plastic bushing.

    The clutch pedal never really felt right, and it would bind a little bit sometimes. Maybe this will fix it.

    Lol. Sometimes the right tool for the job is the one that gets it done, I guess. Would you be willing to take a picture of how your linkage hooks up to the clutch rod? I'm almost certain that I lost a part somewhere along the way of taking mine apart and trying to get it back together again.

    No Prob,

    I have been taking lots of pictures during the rebuild.

    I just ordered the parts today, so I'll try to post them after next weekend.
