Do you still have one good side of the OEM fork? If so, drill out the pop rivet, cut a new fork into the opposite end (make a template by tracing what's left of your OEM fork, flipping it over for the missing ear), then re-pop rivet the retainer 180 degrees flipped around.

Fired up the old 98 machine to get a pic of my repaired clutch fork (2003):

(Damn my 35mm camera took way better pictures than The World's Cheapest Digital Camera -- perhaps I should upgrade?)

67 euro from delorean.eu, sounds like a good deal.

Only purpose of that clip is to keep the clutch release fork from falling off the input shaft until the transmission is mated to the engine. Once the input shaft is slid though the pressure plate it is superfluous.

Ive seen clutch forks for other cars where they are set up on a hinge arrangement within the bellhousing. No loose parts. Seems more stout to me.
