The pin you're talking about can be replaced; but you can't buy one on its own. You either need to find a good used one, or buy a new clutch master cylinder. Having said that, your chances of replacing it in situ without losing clutch fluid are very slim. As such, I'd take this opportunity to replace the master cylinder, or at least rebuild it with new seals. -- Grunff
