Clutch Linkage Setup

I'm in the middle of installing mech clutch linkage in a former hyd setup cj-7. I have all new gear(rods,bellcrank,mts.,etc). The question is how does the bellcrank go? In other words, should the longer, straighter arm or the shorter arm of the bellcrank go on the clutch side? Silly question but two manuals seem to show it both ways. I figured I'd ask people who know or at least can look at their own.

It's a Jeep thing....At least that's what I keep telling my wife.

Re: Clutch Linkage Setup

The short arm goes on the engine or clutch side side where the adjustable pushrod hooks to the clutch fork. The longer arm hooks to the bar that hooks to the clutch pedal

Re: Clutch Linkage Setup

make sure when you install it.. that the rod on the engine side.. with the rod going to the throw out fork.. is straight up and down.. so when you push in the pedal.. you have as much throw on it as you can get.. or your clutch wont disengage all the way..

Re: Clutch Linkage Setup

Hey I know you are just about finished, but why not go get you some spherical rod ends and REALLY upgrade your linkage. They are easy to install, and will make your linkage last a loooong time.

Re: Clutch Linkage Setup

Thanks for the help and I did get the "bearing end" rods from 4 Plus. They should work great, last long time!
