"Can the broken clevis on the clutch pedal really be accessed w/o
removing the clutch and brake pivot assembly?  Freds comment "access is
limited" is an understatement.
To those who have done this, is it worth it to remove the pivot  
(Being 6'4 isn't helpful in this instance)
At least its pushing 35deg here in my snowy Idaho driveway!"

It's been a number of years since I did this, so as best as I can  
recall.. the clevis can be removed
without removing the whole assembly.
That said, it is an incredible S feat to do this upside down and  
backwards on a cold snowy Idaho driveway.
IF you are lucky enough to have broken the threaded portion of the  
threaded rod somewhere where you are left with some thread on both  
sides of the break,
I would highly recommend trying to connect the two broken halves with  
a "coupling nut"
I'd say this is just as good and possibly better than a new MC... and  
way easier.
