On rare occasions, the pivot ball helps the clutch fork can fail.  I have seen one instance where the pivot ball broke.  If the pivot ball fails, the clutch fork just flops around unable to actuate the clutch correctly.  Unfortunately, to confirm this, the transmission needs to be separated from the engine.
