Ah! Number five of four:
5. Inside of the bellhousing, on the other end of the shaft of the clutch lever on the side of the transmission, there are two arms connected to the shaft. Those arms cradle the clutch throw-out bearing. If either that shaft or those arms are starting to fail (by slowly breaking off) you will have to potentially re-adjust the clutch free play to compensate until they totally fail. When that happens, you’ll need to pull the engine and replace the shaft by removing the throw-out arm on the outside, sliding the shaft inside to the right to remove it. Replace it with a new shaft and new bushings in the case to accept it.
Someone else on here had that happen in the past year or two and documented it in a thread.
If this is the case, Weddle sells a heavy duty clutch cross shaft. Instead of a couple cheesy welds, the shaft goes through the arms and is Tig-welded all the way round.
