Hi. I have finally gotten around to changing my clutch m/c. I bought a m/c from PIM last year but realized the m/c is for a car with the clutch reduction mechanism. After reviewing some posts here I swapped out the long pushrod from my old m/c to the new unit. 

Two questions:

1) The old m/c had a long spring which the pushrod sits in outside the m/c unit. Any idea what the purpose of this is? It definitely seems to make the clutch effort stiffer. Could it be to stabilize the longer pushrod? I have a attached a pic of the new m/c with the old pushrod and spring swapped over. 

2) Are the dust boots for the longer pushrods still unavailable? Any leads on a solution? I will try PIM tomorrow but didn’t know if there was a NAPA replacement. 

Thanks,

I spoke with PIM and they recommended deleting the long spring around the pushrod, and re-using the smaller new boot that came with their m/c. 

I did find some Alfa 115 m/c rebuild kits on eBay from an Alfa store that looked like they had a long enough dust boot to cover the long spring but a little pricey at $45, for what it is. 

Still curious if anyone knows what the purpose of the long spring is on the m/c if anyone knows. 

Thanks,

Shashi
