    Default 604 clutch problem

    I am looking at a nice 604 manual which goes well except for a strange clutch action.
    The clutch releases normally but is reluctant to engage properly. When released the pedal can take a long time to come up. After couple of push/release sequences it will engage and there is no slip that I can notice.
    the car has had only occasional use recently. Ideas?

    The flexible clutch line between the slave cylinder and the rigid line to the master cylinder has swollen internally, restricting fluid flow. Cheap to replace.

    They can also be kinked or bent so much as to crimp the hose, restricting flow. In which case it probably needs replacing anyway.

    I have found that the pushrod is not original and has twice bent. It was also probably not fitted on the correct side of the pedal arm.
    Does anyone know if a 504 or 505 pushrod may be the same and if so does anyone have one to sell?

    Could anyone advise possible sources for parts generally please?
