Hello everyone. I'm finally in the re-assembly stage after months and months of cleaning, sandblasting, and painting parts. After installing the engine, I moved on to installing the clutch and brake pedals. When I went to install the clutch linkage connecting the clutch pedal to the clutch fork rod, there is VERY little room between the rod and the left rear motor mount/clutch housing. I was able to get the linkage on the clutch fork rod with some prodding. After connecting all the linkages for the clutch, I found the travel for the linkage to be limited when the pedal is depressed. When the clutch pedal is depressed, the linkage on the clutch fork rod rotates and hits one of the bolts on the clutch pedal mounting bracket. I went back through my photos I took before dissassembly and saw the bolt in question was left out. Has anyone here run into this problem and know of a solution? I thought about reversing the clutch linkage fitting on the rod, but it has a keyway and would still come up against the same bolt. Any help suggestions would be appreciated
