Clutch linkage

I have swapped in a 454bbc and a th350 in my 1976 CJ5. I need to make some sort of clutch linkage. I use a floor shifter. Any suggestions to how I could manufacture a clutch linkage? If some of you guys have any pictures, it will be cool!

Re: Clutch linkage

The TH350 is an automatic transmission, no need of clutch linkage.

Re: Clutch linkage

Can a 350 handle a 454?

Re: Clutch linkage

Best bet would be to use a TH400, but the TH350 may hold up if the Jeep isn't used seriously. As far as the "shifter linkage" your best bet is to probably buy a B&M Mega shifter or something similair because it includes all mounting hardware and cables to make your transmission work. Also need to get a kickdown linkage either off a donar or a cable one from Lokar.

Re: Clutch linkage

Hey, autos can have clutches. They were popular about 35 years ago and I think they are still using them. Thing is, they're for the drag strip so I think he meant shift linkage.

I'm also wondering if the TH350 will handle a 454 firing on all cylinders.

Re: Clutch linkage

we modified an automatic for a clutch in a drag car, it was the ulitmate stall convertier once you got moving it drove like an automatic just push the clutch at complete stops.

Re: Clutch linkage

[img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] Didn't they used to call those Mopar auto-tranny-with-clutch transmissions "Clutch Flites" ??? [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: Clutch linkage

Thx for all your help. I from Denmark, so bare with me. I had no idea that it was called a shift linkage and not a clutch linkage. Well, my question is, anyone has any ideas of making a SHIFT linkage for the TH350 in my '76 CJ5? And yes, the TH350 can be modified to handle the 454
