Ford F100 1965 truck, Need temporary fix idea to get my truck to shop with broken clutch linkage
The part of my clutch linkage (looks like a one inch pipe about 6 inches long with levers at 90 degrees to each other at each end) has evidently come loose on the passenger side end, allowing the clutch pedal to go all the way to the floor without transferring the action to the clutch. The end that's broken loose has slid toward the front of the bracket about and inch. I can push it back nearly into alignment but as soon as I depress the clutch pedal it pops back out of place. I just need to get one more ride out of it so I can take it to the shop. Any suggestions?
