Look at the pinch bolt...it might be differently oriented from when you dismantled things.

The bush in the P-clip on the pedal rod (inside the car) was 100% knackered as was the one where the rod emerged into the engine compartment. The parts book showed felt pads and God know what but mine just had bronze bushes sitting in a crumbling mess of tarry old rubber. I’d guess that the rods didn’t rotate in the bushes but that the bushes moved in the crumbled mess. ie a lot of “slop”.  You could have a look at that.
