Hydraulic clutch

I have a 85 CJ7 that had a 4cyl engine with a hydraulic clutch. I plan on putting in a 6cyl 258 with a T176 tranny. I would like to keep the hydraulic clutch set up with the 6cyl. Has any one done this swap and have any info on it. I want the hydraulic so I don't have to worry about the body flex and body lift problems associated will the belcrank style. I have most of the set up for the Hydraulic.

I will be doing the same thing with my 1980 CJ7. I think it will work because there is a page that tells how to convert from a linkage system to hydraulics. Here is a link that I am referencing: http://www.monsterslayer.com/jeep/Hy...ydroClutch.htm

If you get it done before me, let me know how it goes.

Good Luck,
Kevin

I did a very similar swap. I have a 304 inplace of the 151 in my 1980 CJ-7. I have a T-176 tranny and the only problem was the angle that between the clutch fork and the slave cylinder. The clutch fork was too high for the cylinder. What I ended up doing was getting a piece of the clutch fork cut off toward the end(leaving the dimple as one piece) and rewelding on a little lower by using some scrap metal as a bracket. I hope this helps.

How far did you have to drop the clutch fork down? Can the slave cyl. be dropped down to match the clutch fork height? Does everythink else work okay? Enough power to push the clutch okay?

Sorry for the delay I was gone this weekend. The end of the fork is lowered about an inch. The slave cylinder is actually slightly lowered too. Both were done as a compromise so one was not moved too much. There is plenty of power to move the clutch. It was much worse before with the severe angle.Let me know if have anymore questions.
