Harald!! This is what I was talking about, I noticed cracks on the pivot dimple, so I took a 3/4" flat washer, I laid the washer on top of the dimple, spot welded the middle of it, tapped it down while it was still cherry red, and welded the edge of it as reinforcement.

@Uncleknuckles
How many miles on your Viggen pp before the cracks showed up in the clutch fork? Was your clutch fork new when you put it in?

Ha! Cracks showed up whilst using hydraulic setup on STOCK B21 PP and clutch setup.

I would keep an eye on it for sure.

Good eye for the bend, it also looks like the metal has some odd marks on it, they didn't wipe off with some hard scrubbing, No chemicals on it to try to clean off, almost looks like stress marks

Well let me be the first to second that plan. I can tell you that just the annoyance of the welding I had to do on the new fork to hope it all works out and lasts already is making me want to go to an internal TO bearing design and ditch the fork setup. Who knows if the added materials I put on will last, I guess in 20k miles I will have to pull the trans and check.

Heck you could also just take an off the shelf unit and make it work for our setups and resell that.

I know it would have cost more but the RHD fork and Ben's adapters would have been a bolt on solution, no welding required (unless you want to reinforce the ball socket).
