I don't think it's the pin, more the holes in the u-shaped bit of the link, but I haven't actually checked. If it is the pin I'll get one made for nothing by my lathe crazy Dad! If its the U link, I'll bodge it with correctly sized washers and epoxy. Not spending =A350+ for a bit of clutch play! I haven't sourced a new cruise switch yet so it's pretty irrelevant in the grand scheme of things. Thanks for the input, always appreciated. Al
