Frankly, I'm sure it'd be a selling point if it did. ...

I broke the post on the upper spring perch, and installed the new Steeda spring with it that way. Pushing the clutch in and out a few times convinced me I did not want the upper and lower perches going in different directions as it travelled through it's range of motion. Fortunately I was able to find the pin where it had fallen behind the upper edge of the carpet. I bonded the post back on with JB Quick Weld and placed a 3/32 roll pin through the top of the upper perch and the center of the post, also bonded in with the JB. A little dusting of black spray paint, and you can't even see the repair. Not only do I have my original part, it is now stronger than it will ever need to be. For any of the Forum members who have had this occur to them, if you have a small home shop drill press, the upper perch has enough flat surfaces to make it easy to jig up and keep things centered. I used a 1/16" pilot drill through the stub side of the upper perch before bonding the broken guide pin to provide a pilot hole, then slowly worked up to 7/64" from the top of the perch down through the rebonded guide pin, giving about .020 clearance around the roll pin to allow for the JB Quick Weld in the final hole in the rebonded upper perch guide pin. Even if you have to buy the JB and a package of assorted roll pins you have maybe $15. invested and a couple hours time. Definitely faster and less expensive than replacing the whole assembly!
