Addressing further potential issues I've had with the clutch linkage on 'Betty' I purchased and installed this kit while she was deadlined on unrelated issues.

An important point of the installation of the upper rod is the correct end to bellcrank and roll angle of the rods not mentioned in the instructions. While in most pictures (including the exploded view in the instructions) it appeared as though the two bends are centered when in fact they are not. The short end goes to the pedal, the long end goes to the bellcrank.

Further, use great caution in achieving the correct roll angle to avoid interference with the brake pedal arm.

After tuning in this linkage, I must say it's very smooth and judging by the ball joints and rods, seems very substantial. Time will tell.
