1984 CJ7 that i am trying to get running again

Ok here goes, i am new to working on jeeps but have been around them in some way all my life. Right now i have an 84 CJ7 with stock 5 speed transmission and a hydraulic clutch. It had been sitting for about 6-7 years because of registration issues and emissions, it was not mine so i did not have much say in the issues but now i have taken to getting it road worthy and bringing it back to life. My first task was to get the clutch working again, i took it off cleaned both the master and slave and put it back in only to realize that i was broken before i even touched it because the push-rod for the slave had nothing to attach it to the clutch "swingarm" (i know that i not correct but it is the best way to describe it) so even if it would engage it would have now way to pull it back when the clutch was let off. I am at a loss of what i need to do at this point, i think i need a new slave but the only ones i see have now way to connect it to the clutch it is just a rod. If anyone has pictures or anything that shows how this thing should look that would be amazing because then i would know where i need to be with this assembly. This is my first project jeep and while i may not have the greatest mechanical knowledge out there i am pretty quick on the uptake of information once i see how something should be done. Thank you for your assistance and i look forward to getting some pictures up soon .

Thank you that gives me a good place to start and see where things are going wrong. I suppose a more direct question would now be how does the hydraulic slave pushrod connect to the throwout lever on the clutch

A spring holds the clutch fork against the pivot ball inside the bellhousing and another holds the clutch fork in place and in the forward position, if the springs are missing or broke they will not hold the fork forward. The rod fits between the slave cylinder and the fork, spring pressure holds it in place.

X2 on the clutch fork holding the slave rod in place.

BTW, I looked at your profile and you have a Chevy V8. If that's attached to a T5 and you're running the stock gearing (possibly 2.73s), that transmission won't last long.

It would be wise to fill out the technical aspects of your Jeep more fully.

Thank you guys so much now I know exactly what I need to do. I do believe that the T5 is what's in there as it is a 5 speed and the stock transmission running as far as i know stock gears.
