the sleeve bearings work great, but dont allow rotation on the outside.
which means they work but only for pressing into each component individually

easiest way to make this work is to drill the pedal to m12 (i have a bulk of m12 drill bits now) press/hammer in sleeve bearing (once i cut them in half)
then drill the clutch master cylinder and place a flanged bearing through each side

once i have the flanged bearings i will post pics of how it works- this will fix the problem entirely, no wear on anything but the bearing and the pin.
bearing is graphite coated and oil impregnated (on the inside), and my pins are machined smooth.  

one time fix that wont need parts replaced.

stock replacements still on sale + used with the bearing setups
stay tuned

awesome. I'll be down for a set. I attempted to do this a while ago with that same bearing, but never started, so a kit will get me motivated.

Flanged bearings have arrived
only waiting on a clutch pedal for testing, then finishing touches

As of now, the DIY kit will include
  12.9 grade polished clevis pin- with clip pin
  m12 drill bit  
  3 bearings- one for the pedal arm, two for the clutch master cylinder

The Mail-In option is to remove your clutch pedal + clutch master cylinder and send them to me
it will return with the pin, bearings, and a brand new (or rebuilt) clutch master cylinder

Once test fitting is complete I will determine the prices for each option
Stay tuned

P.S.
Pressed a bearing through some steel i had, pin fits like a glove, no slop whatsoever.  
Inside of the bearing is graphite lined, the polished pin spins effortlessly

Price for the DIY kit is $40 shipped  $35 shipped (lower 48)  (shipping a bit less than expected, brought it down from 45)
[$70 for two]  
paypal: Aaronwork4@gmail.com

Comes with:
-My custom made Pin (w/ washers and clip pin)
-M12 Drill Bit
-Long Bearing for Clutch Pedal
-Two short Bearings for the Clutch Cylinder

I also want to offer a mail order deal, where you can send your clutch pedal and i will do the work-
Pressing the bearings into the clutch mc arm can be tricky and I've come up with some tools to do it without bending the arms.

Hoping to be able to get clutch master cylinder cores from this that I can rebuild and send out brand new with the pedals.
Also, have non-bushing type (all metal) mc adjusters (from a nissan) to replace ours (with the rubber bushing) to tighten up pedal feel.

Let me know where interest lies
Thanks

Put it together on a starquest pedal & mc today
here are some pics

forgot to take pics during the installation, but the ovaled out holes were completely re-rounded by the upsize, and the bearings fit perfectly
no slop in any direction

Reinstalled this nice system which works nice and smooth as advertised with no play. No more clickity clack of the clevis pin ovaling out the pedal hole and pushrod connector bracket. Only tried it up to third gear yesterday, but really I could tell without even driving it this was a huge improvement. Here are a few before and after picsPosted Image Posted Image Posted Image   Posted Image

Working on the second batch of these

-New prices: (shipped to lower 48)
$12 for stock sized replacement pin
$30 for kit (includes pin, bearings, and drill bit)
[$50 for two kits]

as proven above, they work
one time fix for your sloppy clutch pedal, that is now cheaper
