That is such an improvement over the original clutch linkage with bearings, bushings, and solid milled yokes.  Very nice job!

One more step ,
i'm doing the gas tank now,
first of all had to get rid of the surface rust on the inside of the tanks, i used Rust Remover for hat and let it rest for the night .

after reaching bare metal,  i rinsed it with water and dried the hole thing .

step 2 is coating the tank from the inside ,i chose a specific epoxy material that is used for industrial chemical and fuel tanks. (Tnemec 61 http://www.tnemec.com/product/view/Series-61-TnemeLiner)
After mixing the 2 components and adding some thinner i filled the tank with 2 liters and  turned it over and over so it will reach every inch on it.
The immersion time is 5-7 days, after a week the final result is an Emile-like top coating, completly rust proof .

the tank is ready for 60 more years of servicing
