1988 - 1997 Ford F-Series w/ 5 speed manual transmission

Part Number(s):



This rod end assembly, coined the "heim joint mod", replaces the factory bushing and eye of the clutch master cylinder pushrod. Doing so eliminates problems associated with pushrod bushing wear, poor clutch disengagement, and clutch pedal swing arm wear.


The clutch master cylinder pushrod attaches to the clutch pedal swing arm. The pin on the swing arm and the metal eye of the pushrod are separated by a small plastic bushing. The service life of this bushing is extremely short and it wears rapidly. As it wears, slop develops at this pivot point and clutch pedal throw is reduced. In time, the problem can become severe enough that the clutch will not fully disengage. This results in rough gear engagements, harsh shifting, gear grinding, and increased transmission wear. This product completely and permanently eliminates this problem.
