Very early clutch push rod

There was also a very early clutch push rod that utilized a single ball as the bearing between the end of the clutch push rod and the inner body (MG# 12085700).

Thanks to Piotr Sawiak for providing the following information on this very early clutch push rod.

The length of this clutch push rod is 223 mm. The ball I had was 4.7 mm diameter, but it should be 5 mm I think.
