Hydo clutch converstion question

I am rebuilding my CJ7 and have a YJ tub that's in very good condition. The YJ tub doesn't have the hole near the floor for the mechanical clutch linkage rod. Since my linkage is pretty worn out, I thought it might be a good idea to just go to hydro clutch setup.

Will my pedals (which attach to the mechanical clutch) be adaptable to actuate the clutch master cylinder? Or will I have to find new pedals somewhere?

Also - would I be able to use the master/slave from Autozone?

Slave Link: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/par...ier=69715_0_0_
Master Link: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/par...er=733832_0_0_

Almost forgot - my transmission is a T5. Would that autozone slave bolt on?

Thanks

I converted mine over years ago using generic parts from Rockauto, instead of those pricey kits. There should already be holes in the bellhousing to accept the slave cylinder. The only issue I had was the piston did not have enough reach for the clutch, and I had to rig up an adapter to give it an extra inch or so of reach.

Couple of threads on this forum addressing rod length. some use a threaded rod and couple. I just kept the pedal set up form the YJ tub as it came with it.

There are many options on Rockauto - will any of the CJ slave cylinders bolt up?

Here's the link to the whole page of em.

I think my best bet might be to try out the autozone one. It's pretty cheap and I would get something in my hands to test out. Plus if it doesn't fit..It's easy enough to return it.

I'm always paranoid from ordering parts from a catalog that I'm not sure will fit

Interesting point about the threaded rod. If mine is short I could always go that route. I could probably also weld/custom fab my own.

My YJ tub didn't come with pedals - So I don't have too many options there. Either I find some way to adapt my CJ pedals or I need to go out and get another pedal/whole pedal set.
