I'm wondering if anyone else on the list has redone their fulcrum pin 
bushings.  I ordered a replacement bushing set and new fulcrum pin, but 
on examining the new set, the fulcrum pin was as loose in the new bushing 
as the old one I was trying to replace.  The smaller capped bushing was 
OK, but the larger one (that takes grease fitting) looks as if the hole 
was overbored before threading.  This allows noticeable slop even when 
threaded all the way onto the fulcrum pin.
My question is, how much slop is acceptable?  Does anyone know a source 
of bushings made to an acceptable tolerance?

Also, You will soon have a new brake and clutch system completely 
rebuilt.  Do you choose silicone or original fluid and why?

                Thanks to all who reply,
