Where in the world, can a guy find clutch linkage?? (232 ci, T-150 3-speed) I was busy getting my CJ5 running today, and I happened to notice that the clutch rod to the throwout arm is missing, and then to accomidate this rediculous home made body lift, the primary rod through the firewall was scabbed together with a 3-4" extension... there is also a bracket that was added to mount the z-bar below the body that will need to be delt with.

She runs great though! Of course, I can't drive it until I find 'the missing link' , but it does run!

Think about using heim joint ends. Works so much better without binding near as much during flex.

Think about a hydraulic conversion. If that linkage is marginal, it may cause problems under frame flexing.

I would if I were going to keep it, but this CJ5 is going back to stock and then getting sold.. I'll be ordering a complete kit so marginal won't be a problem..
