question for 1974 jeep cj 5 owners
 
on your clutch linkage j-bar or whatever they call it,one arm on the one end is long and the other end arm is short.my jeeps clutch was extremely hard to push so after investagating i found the clutch pedal side was attached to the short arm side and the throwout bearind actuator was hooked to the long arm side.long story short i reversed this bar and the clutch is extremly easier to actuate but the throwout bearing actuator rods travels less distance the clutch works good just less movement per pedal press.which side goes where on your stock jeep ?long =clutch pedal side?>short =clutch pedal side?any help would be apreciated

I'm working straight through for the next few days. I'll check mine out monday evening when I have some time. Which engine/tranny combo are you running?

i should stress that the clutch was so hard to push it would try to lift the body away from the frame when u depressed the clutch pedal.after i reversed that j bar and now it pushes like butter.

Mine was the same way, every time you pushed the pedal the side of the jeep heaved up. It eventually broke one of the body mounts. I have since ripped all that garbage off and went with a hydraulic setup. Best thing I've done to the jeep so far and it only cost $200.

I have a 72 same thing.The stock linkage sux.Everytime I would twist it up the linkage would bind.Do yourself a favor and go to a junkyard and get a hydralic clutch.I got mine for 35.00.It takes a little fabbing to make it work but it is well worth the time and money.
