What is the next person going to do when their stock unwelded clutch pedal has play?

Are there any other sources?

I thought anyone could remove their stock one and have it welded?

Maybe, but if the parts were worn, couldn't it be welded in the wrong position e.g. the position where there was play. I don't think it takes much play in the components to run into issues so you'd have to be spot on when welding no?

Huh, I have seen that a thousand times but never really read it. Seems to me that you don't need to worry about worn parts if you follow that procedure.

I had a machine shop make me brass bushings for $20, and welded the end. The stock rebuild kits just fail again snyway.

Just a note on this--

There are some other manufacturers out there making the bushings out of Brass as well, and typically they're close in price to our bushings.

We make (and have always made) our bushings out of Bronze, not brass.

It's twice the material cost of brass, and typically a little more expensive to machine, but when you're welding these pedal assemblies together, they're not easily taken apart to replace bushings without starting again from square one. That's why we spend the extra money (almost double the material costs) on the bronze.

The brass may work fine in most instances, but since it's a somewhat "permanent" setup once you're done, we felt the material costs were justified.

We discontinued making the bushing for the opposite end of the clutch pedal (the pedal side which you're not welding), as out of the 200+ pedal assemblies that we've welded over the years, I've seen only one or two bushings on that end (and for the brake pedal) that were worn to the point of REALLY needing to be replaced--it simply wasn't worth the costs to sell those to people.

If the splines are worn out and their is play welding it will fail down the line. I have tried replacing bushings and welding and the weld cracks within a year.
