So I'm ordering a new clutch pedal (and bushings) from The Fiero Store, and want to get an adjustable banjo clip from Rodney Dickman, too. Rodney sells two different styles, early (84-87) and late (88), based on the diameter of the pin on the clutch pedal bracket, but TFS only has one style of pedal that they advertise as 84-88. The picture on TFS is not large enough for me to tell which clip to buy, does anyone that's recently purchased a pedal from TFS know which style of pin it has on it?Pics of the two styles on Rodney's site.

Thanks!

Now I'm even more confused. The Fiero Store's clutch pedal doesn't need the bushing to the master cylinder rod/banjo clip, but what style is the pin? Or does it not matter?

This problem has been documented in the past, and I can't find the thread. I think the Fiero store pedal is the larger pin....but not positive yet.

TFS clutch pedal is the large diameter pin. So order my early/large diameter banjo kit. All Fiero clutch master cylinders will fit on that pedal but you will have steel to steel for a wear surface on the pin. My early adjustable banjo has a oilite bushing in it to fit the large diameter pin.

Thanks, getting ready to order everything now. Went out yesterday morning to see if I could drive it, as some days are better than others (thought maybe temperature was causing metal parts or fluids to expand/contract? Was driving fine on warm days but then we had a cool spell and that's when the problems started up again), and there was no resistance in the clutch pedal, at all. Able to get it in gear with the engine off, so definitely just a clutch issue. Probably going to just order new master and slave cylinders while I'm at it.
