I suspect either the pedal cluster (the "Gordon pin"), the clutch tube in the center tunnel, or the bushing on the clutch throwout arm.

Check the roll pin in the pedal cluster by removing the wood floorboard that goes underneath the pedals. Push the clutch pedal and pull it back all the way. The pedal should have a roll pin that connects it to a cross-shaft, and that shaft should turn as the pedal pivots.

Check the clutch tube by adjusting the clutch cable. If it quickly goes out of adjustment again, the clutch tube is the likely suspect.

The most straightforward way to check the bushing is to remove the transmission from the car, then pull the clutch throwout arm out. Then inspect the bushing.
