Clutch linkage?

Anyone know where I can get a clutch linkage for a '74 CJ5 that has a SBC in it? Mine broke today and it was a PO "custom" job. Any help would be appreciated.

no doubt that the bolt went through the pipe looking piece on the linkage..it may also go through a support bracket on the outside of the pipe..remove the old and replace with a new grade 8 bolt

while you have it apart,make sure the pipe has a grease fitting in it..keeping it greased will make the clutch pedal smoother operating and probably make the new bolt last longer

Ideally you should swap to a hydraulic linkage. If you're using an early 60's bell housing there should be bosses to mount a slave. And adapt a master to the fire wall.

Another alternative is the chain. http://www.advanceadapters.com/downloads/716640.pdf

It's for floor pedals but it's not too difficult to adapt.

might be ideal for some but I prefer simple mechanical linkage

I think this is what's left of a small block Chevy cluth pivot ball stud that the linkage plugs onto
