Good point.  I also did replace the rear bushing which holds the shift rod 
centered at the rear of the shift cage at the same time as the clutch 
replacement.  Mine was completely worn out.  Shifting becomes VERY imprecise 
whien this happens.  Only other real adjustments are in the shift rod 
linkages and not recommended (besides, they're above the tranny and you know 
how much room there is between the tranny and trans tunnel ;-).
