I had a 1985 Ford F-350 dump truck that was used to haul a chipper around for my tree service business. I was at a customer's house getting ready to leave after a long, hot day of climbing trees. The rod that gets pushed when you depress the clutch pedal broke. I took this tube with a seam along the length of it off of the buckle of my climbing saddle. It probably has an internal diameter of a quarter inch. I stuck both ends of the broken clutch rod into the tube which acted like a coupler. Then, I took two small hose clamps off of the fuel line of the chipper and clamped them around the tube. It lasted for the ten mile ride home and probably would have lasted for several months. The next day I went to the hardware store and bought a stronger steel tube and some brazing rods and fused it all together.
