That is a common OEM part that gets worn to a point of shearing off and is exactly what has happened to yours. The pedal rod will do the same thing so it is best just to replace all parts with new or upgrade with either Oilite bushing for the pivot holes or rod end bearings which are 3/8-24 thread.

And save/replace that little rubber snubber at the end of the rod, it keeps noise from happening as the clutch fork is being worked in & out.

Huh? I am pretty new to fixing my own cars and do not know what you are talking about other than OEM parts. I will do a bit of googleing today to see what parts I need to order. If you have some links I would love to check them out.

As always though, I appreciate your response. I have looked over a lot of threads and its great that experienced guys like yourself are willing to offer advise to greenhorns like me.

You REALLY need to buy a copy of the REAL Factory Service Manual(FSM).
Haynes and Chilton just don't 'cut-it' in details.

All you need is a 3/8'' Heim joint, threaded rod, and mounting bolt.
LOOK again at Keith's pictures.

That kit is OK. It may have parts you don't need. That appears to be the same or similar kit that Morris sells:

http://www.jeep4x4center.com/bellcra...-5360104k.html

This page has a diagram of the clutch parts with pricing for each part (or set of parts). You might be able to find the individual parts you need instead of buying a kit with extra parts:

http://www.jeep4x4center.com/jeep-cl...bler/index.htm

I suppose it boils down to what specific parts you intend to replace. Note that the cams/lugs/tabs/arms (whatever you want to call them) on the bellcrank tend to wear out so you might need to repair or replace that also.

As with any old vehicle, sometimes when you have things apart for a repair it's worth the time and expense to replace other parts in the same area that are known to wear out.

Thank you for all of your help. I ordered the kit. Upon closer inspection the Clutch Release Bellcrank has one end that has wobbled and opened up to no longer hold a new bolt. Hopefully it will be here in 2 days and I can go wheeling this weekend.

Be sure to pump the bellcrank full of grease after you install it. This will help keep water out of it.
