    I have recently been having some issues with my clutch pedal. I would depress it, shift, then release but the pedal would not return. After searching around on the forum i came to the conclusion that the issue was my clutch master and slave. After replacing both and bleeding things seemed fine up until a week ago when the clutch pedal again started to stick after being depressed. Also i started to notice it becoming harder and harder to to push. Again i figured there was just some air in the lines that needed to be bled out. After bleeding the pedal returned fine however, it was still difficult to push in. I thought since it was Thursday that it could wait till the weekend when i had more time to look at. That night when Left my house i got out of my driveway and felt that something wasn't right, pressed on the clutch and heard a snapping sound. the Clevis on the push-rod had completely broken. I managed to find a auto-parts store with a new master and replace it but i'm just concerned if i've done it right? does anyone have any experience with replacing these? i noticed that on the clevis the nut that connects to the push rod is not completely straight. Is there a certain way that is is supposed to go? how much thread should it be catching on the push-rod? and advice would be greatly appreciated. i'm not very experienced with these things but am trying to learn!
