Ha!

Well I fixed it. Kinda had to rip into it a bit more than I expected to get this done. I blame the headlight squirters. I think cars without allow the lower trim piece below the headlight to come out easier. Whatever, it's done, looks fine.

Just glad to get this 'needs fixing' item off my to-do list.

Trouble shifting into 1st. Seemed like it was more when cold (cold here is relative). I thought internal leak on the slave or master so replaced those, cheap and easy enough so. When replacing the slave cylinder though I felt the shift fork and it was all wobbly around the place and could pivot er... rotate clockwise or counterclockwise way more than I thought should be. Googling said common for the pivot pin to fail. Ordered up new brass/bronze? pivot pin for more burliness and then towed it over to a shop. Sorry, no dropping transmission on my chest here.
Sure enough, that was the problem. Shop said didn't look like there was any grease applied to either pivot or TO bearing. :finger: humph.

New parts in, and she's good to go. Clutch feel is way different. It's smoother and easier.
Small update, :beer:
