lynn Replace the entire linkage. Quadratec has a kit
Rod Links CMP7560 - Rod Links Clutch Linkage for 76-86 Jeep® CJ - Quadratec

They also have a kit to use with body-lifted rigs
Rod Links CMP7560-1 - Rod Links Clutch Linkage for 76-86 Jeep® CJ with 1-3" of Body Lift - Quadratec

Lots of info out on the web on CJ forums, search for "CJ heim joint clutch linkage"

Rusty Knutt Can ya blame a guy for trying?

sean112280 I think I temp fixed it until I upgrade to hydraulic clutch. I took off the "ball" and added washers to move it over. So it seems to be working for now. I'll have to pass on giving it up Good try though

Rusty Knutt Oh and it might just be the retainer clip in the end of the rod is wore out....replace it. < hope its this one, its the cheapest option.

Rusty Knutt OK, I have given this some thought.....

Number 1....Are you running a bodylift? If so perhaps you need to lengthen one rod and shorten the other.

Number 2....Are you body isolators just slam wore out? If so maybe you need to replace all of them.

Number 3....Go hydraulic?

And if these are not to your liking...just give it away, to me. I think I could deal with it.

Clutch issues

Ok so here is my problem. My clutch keep giving out on me. I've come to the conclusion that is bc the shaft is right on the steering shaft and when I hit a bump it comes off. Now my question is how do I go about fixing this problem? Is there a longer "ball" that I can put on to make the shaft connect further over or what? Any suggestions will help. Thanks
