The rod will probably be fine if the roll pin is good and tight (it usually takes quite a bit of force to get any kind of roll pin into its bore.

When you install the new clutch cable you will want to pay close attention to how the metal portion is oriented on the bowden tube (small tube sticking out of the firewall) - if wrong, and the arch of the cable leaving that spot is not correct, you will have a first gear, takeoff judder that will make you shat your pants thinking a bomb just went off under the car (just kidding about the bomd sensation, but the car will shake violently when you first let the clutch out)! I will look for a link to a thread on this (many threads out there already).

And if you are not familiar with this, when you feed the clutch cable through the tunnel, you'll need to look into it, from the pedal side, with a small mirror and flashlight, to make sure it doesn't get wound around the throttle cable in any way. If it does, your throttle won't return/close like it is supposed to.
