Here you can see the push rod Jeff fabricated to work the fork.

Putting together the clutch linkage was a mix and match of different parts. The hydraulic clutch pushrod was custom made to fit the conversion, as well as the chipped paint on the frame (frame paint is something I'd do much differently next time). Although the cultch slave cylinder (and master) are off an early '80s CJ with Iron Duke GM 4-cyl, the clutch fork necessitates a pushrod change. I tried using CJ parts, but couldn't get it to fit the Chevy clutch fork.

I ended up using 3/8" threaded rod and 2 jam nuts to make my own pushrod. A hardware-store spring was added as a return spring. Also worth noting, but not quite visible, is the pushrod ball: to fit the indentation in the clutch fork, I got a chevy smallblock rocker-arm pivot ball & slipped it between the jam-nuts & the clutch fork - should last a lifetime in this application.



The hydraulic master and slave cylinder from the Iron Duke CJ will not be effected by frame twist. Having the clutch linkage fall apart on the trail is no fun.
