Omix bell crank rebuild kit

Has anyone used the omix part #5360104K clutch bell crank kit? Runs about $60 most places. Looks ok, just wondering about quality. Any info appreciated!

I'm curious as well, I have the part bookmarked for when I have the spare change. Like most Omix products, I'm wary.

Yeah, that's kind of where I'm at. There's also a rugged ridge kit for a little more moolah. Need to do sumthin soon tho,PO has it tie-wired and there's a freakin hose clamp in the equation too!

Omix = Rugged Ridge, for what it's worth. I think your original part number is a Crown product, though. In general, I'd prefer Omix/Rugged Ridge over Crown, but the margin is slim compared to OEM.

What I might do is refurbish what I have - sand down, paint, new bushings if I can find them, etc. I bought a new Omix clutch release rod a few years back and have been happy with it, the rest may still be usable.
