Re: \'83 CJ7 clutch adjustment

If it has mechanical linkage there is a threaded rod between the bellcrank and the arm sticking out the side of the bellhousing. Screw it together to shorten it. Don't go nuts - take it a little at a time.

A 1983 CJ with I6 will likely be mechanical linkage. So like Jim said, a little at a time.
Somewhere I read that there should be 1 1/2" of free travel at the top of the peddle movement so that's what I try to set. Seems to make the peddle feel right.
You might want to make the adjustment with the motor cold, it's between the exhaust pipe and the frame rail. Long hex adjuster with a jam nut, almost enough room to get you hands in there.
