Well I have decided that the only other thing that could be causing my clutch problems(see earlier posts) is the play in my support bracket.
Has anyone done one of these and can anyone offer some tips ,words of encouragement, or just moral support.
I am hoping that this will fix my clutch releases problem,oh and by the way now I find the rear wheel cylinders are both frozen. I REALLY gotta take this car out more.....

I replaced the bushings in mine while doing the Hi-Po restoration with a steel aftermarket replacement. Since then I think an even better bushing replacement is on the market, one that uses needle bearings. A friend has used it and is very satisfied. The biggest hassel is getting the darn bracket out.

Virginia Mustang (VAMustang.com) has a nice little kit that replaces those wimpy plastic bushing with steel - should last you until the car becomes cosmic dust. About 12-15 dollars, IIRC.

There is a vendor who makes a needle-bearing unit (needs your core) - but it is expensive ($80 - IIRC) and overkill.

Didn't have much trouble getting it out, but getting it in has been a challenge. Had to go work on something else for a while, but I'll be back and I will win!
