Ok. So the bush on the end of my Au's clutch fork that holds the cable has layed open, as they do.
Now apparently they are now obsolete and repco/burson can't get them.
What am I ment to do now?

its no longer a dampener, its just a direct hook to replace the dampener..
it will still work, the only thing I would think would be different is you may feel some vibration through the clutch pedal..

I have altered my clutch arrangement so that the throw-out bearing isn't in constant contact with the pressure plate fingers.
I had to install a pedal stop and a return spring at the fork end.
No vibes.
I run a PBR RPM clutch kit.

Well I've installed it.
Works as it should, has a new cable and pedalbox re enforced, fire wall is still good.
No vibrations either, thanks alot for the tip off.
