Default Porken clutch saver.

Is the porken clutch saver still available, or does anyone have one for sale, riding the clutch too long.

Do you mean the clutch pedal stop? I have one to go because it doesn't fit my '78. But you need to be patient because I am fabricating one myself. Ineed the old one as a template.

Sorry to hijack the thread, MrSpencer.

I will be looking for the same for my OBs. Can you (Ad0911)elaborate how the PKlutch is not working for your '78?

thanks-Hoi

Sure, the arm of the pedal goes left of the adjustable rest. Not on it.

I have plenty in stock for $49.95.
IIRC it does not fit RHD cars but did not know about 78.
It may be because the clutch master cylinder is different on the 78/79 9" Booster cars.
The MC is the location point for the PKlutch.

thanks so much. Guess I won’t be needing them for my OBs.

Ken, would you mind commenting if this is true and whether you’d be adjusting some for the OBs?

thanks

The clutch arm is shaped differently pre-81. (There was a thread about this within the last year or so.) I am not inclined to make a special one for those years, although I know someone local with an '80 I'm fairly sure I could test/measure on.
