I have a 84 CJ7 with a 94 tub. I am swapping in a 1974 Mopar 360 with a NP435 4 speed and bellhousing from a 87 D100 and the Dana 300 transfer case that came with the 84CJ. I am using Novak adjustable motor mounts and a Novak trans to Transfer adapter. I'm at the point where the motor mounts are now tacked in to where they need to live and the transmission crossmember/skid plate has been notched and reinforced to accept the big 'ol NP435. Here is my dilemma- On the bellhousing, the pivot point for the clutch arm is no where close to where it needs to be to use the stock clutch set up. It needs to be just forward of the fire wall if I'm going to use the stock set up but it is actually going to have to live a few inches behind it. The motor cannot move any more forward. The only option that I can see is using a hydraulic clutch set up, but I don't know squat about how to set one up. Does anyone have any advice they can offer? Thanks.
If you have a 94 YJ tub then it is already setup for a hydraulic clutch on the firewall. And if you also have the YJ petals in the tub then you will not have to do any modifications. Just install the master and slave cylinders with the line and you will be set. I'm not sure how the slave will bolt up to your NP435 bellhousing though. If you are using CJ petals, then you will have to do a few modifications. Here is a link showing those mod's........http://www.monsterslayer.com/pages/jeep/HydClutch/HydroClutch.htm

Hopefully this diagram is helpful as to the parts.
I have two of these so if you need any further help I can try and find the pictures.
nshefbuch does not have the standard fit system, it looks like the slave is mounted further forwards with no arm (or a very short one) on the front of the cylinder and a bracket. No reason it should not work, it is only a 3/4" bore hydraulic cylinder in the standard system.
