Hi, just had a question about these. Looking at the pivoting dowels on these, should they lean in slightly towards the main arm of the lever? Or should they be straight up towards each other?  (example pics below..not my one)

Current: Triumph Vitesse 6 convertible with O/D 1964

21 Years ago...and my first car! : Triumph Herald 1200 Saloon/ Tristan conversion 1966

Straight ....    the other one is bent

of they have flats worn on you can drill them out and weld in a clevis pin as a repair

if  the throwout is only 15mm thick add a washer under the lightly pressed in spherical post this realigns the lever as orig bearing was 19 mm thick   all the losses add up poor action.

if the carrier has worn  by the lever pins ,remove the anti rotaion pin and drill elswhere to use some unworn groove


1964 1600 Vitesse 6 Cactus and Black , now  sold
now have T2000   Mk2 saloon in French Blue/grey trim  been  restored without running since 1997
now has power steering ,poly bushed and Alfa 156 seats
location  Luton

I thought that was two pics of the same lever, just either side?

If it was made by man, it can be dismantled and rebuilt by man. Usually just not as easily.
