There should be a post for the little things not forget when doing major jobs!

I just found out about the soft clutch line the hard way(that was the one thing I didn't change with the master and slave)

And now I'm worried I didn't change the clutch fork and slippers!

a good tip for the clutch fork is to replace the fork and pivot with the cast type used on early V8's they dont snap on the arms or wear through the pivot.

you can also buy a modified arm that has a tab welded across the back of the arm over the pivot socket
you should look at the pivot in the belhousing, make sure it has not worn a shoulder into it off the pivot as the will shag a new arm pronto.

Better safe than sorry so i'll change the pivot also and weld
reinforcement on the arm.

Damned, before you know the all clutch is new !

I was wondering what would cause you to need a clutch that soon.
