[DML] Re: Strange Clutch Problem (Perhaps Involving Adjustable Linkage)

This is one of those older issues that probably needs repeating 
again. Initially the factory (and some aftermarket providers?) tried 
to remedy the plastic clutch line expansion issues by providing the 
adjustable link to allow a bit more travel at the pedal. Problem was, 
a bunch of the adjustable links got out and installed that were not 
heat treated, so they end up wearing out and looking like yours. 

If you your clutch line has been replaced with a braided stainless 
one, you can probably re-install the original non-adjustable OEM 
link. these should not be hard to come by, I may have one or two 
around here too. I'm sure Josh has a bunch of them.
