I think the lingage might have broken on the clutch pedal. I have a shaft attached to the pedal about 3" long, that goes into the fire wall. How hard is this to replace and where can I find a diagram of this?

Re: broken clutch pedal
The shaft attached to the pedal connects to a device that changes the forward motion of the pedal to a backward motion to the clutch. These shafts are attached with cotter pins and you might be lucky and simply broke one. Check this site for how a clutch works: http://auto.howstuffworks.com/clutch.htm
Reattaching the shafts with new cotter pins isn't hard. But if one is broken, you have to get a replacement. Try a junk yard, it's cheaper.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Hi, Look in the foot well (where you normally have you feet) you should see a return spring attached to the clutch pedal, if missing or you can see broken spring you need to buy another spring, you will see parts of broken spring where they fit not a very hard job to replace. Please leave me feedback thanks, Malcolm Campbell.
Keep the hell away from it, many things changed after the first model year which was 91, Spend another 50 bucks and get a 92. Pull up the shifter boot and look at the shift cable ends where they attach to the bottom of the shifter. Most likely the bushings will be broken.
If hydraulic actuated mechanism, loss of fluid, defective master cylinder or slave cylinder at the clutch. Missing pin or other part between slave cylinder and clutch arm. Loose or broken slave cylinder mounting. Missing pin or broken part between pedal and master cylinder. If mechanical linkage, look for broken components or missing pins at moving joints. If you tried to shift into gear with engine running, you may have damaged the transmission gears.
