CJ clutch adjust rod questions

664 Views 3 Replies 1 Participant Last post by  **DONOTDELETE**
I finished swapping a T18 trans in the CJ a month ago and replaced the clutch. There has always been free-play in it, but I adjusted the rod out as far as it will go. I just came back from wheeling today and the clutch is still not disengaging completely, but it is now worse. I checked my buddy's Jeep( same set up 304/t18) and his adjustment rod is a 1/2 to 3/4 on an inch longer. Where can I get a longer clutch linkage adjustment rod to get rid of the freeplay. Is there another vehicle or make I can find one in? Anyone else have any expierence with this? Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure about longer rods, but have you ever seen those adjustable clutch lever pivot point bolts, (it's a bolt and jam nut with the head very round and you can turn it in/out to desired position, kind of like the steering stops on your front axle)

just my two cents............

Use a piece of 3/8 x 24, all thread with a 3/8 femail hime rod end. scerw the other end into the adj, piece, on the fork. bolt the rod end to the bell crank,
with a 3/8 bolt. Hope this helps
