Clutch Linkage (mechanical) question
So I have a full load of stuff in the jeep, moving from one apt to another. Soon as I pull out of the driveway, press on the clutch pedal and bam, pedal goes to the floor, can't disengage the clutch.
Look underneath and the linkage between the pedal rod and the clutch fork (I think that's what it is) has slipped out, due to a huge amount of wear on the metal at the end where the rod is connected to the clutch pedal rod.
Anyhow, in looking for replacement parts, I have one burning question:
The thing they call a jamnut has a round end which seems to rest in the corresponding round divot in the lever sticking out of the side of the transmission (which I may have correctly or incorrectly called the clutch fork). I attached a diagram with the two parts I am talking about circled in case I am describing them incorrectly.
Is there no attachment between the jamnut and the divot? It just rests in there? Unless I lost a piece, there doesn't seem to be anything securing that end.
