T-18 Clutch linkage

I'm putting a T-18 behind my hi-po 360. I was planning on replacing my "iffy/kinda rusty" clutch linkage. Should I go stick w/a linkage for the old T-150, or do I need a T-18 linkage. I'd love a new hydralic kit from Novak, but the 410 hp motor busted my budget a great bit. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks, hutch

All of the non hydro linkage is the same. You can buy a linkage set from morris for under $60 and get all the parts new. Look here.

Are you running headers or manifolds? If you run long tube in frame headers they will often interfere with the hydro linkage. The 4 cylinder CJ's came factory with hydro clutches. So if you want to go that route you can just buy the CJ parts. Parks Mike also make a hydro conversion kit.

Look here. In that post I have some pictures of the differences in the pedals from factory hydro and factory mechanical linkages.

The factory clutch linkage is the same for both as are the actual clutch components and bellhousing.

Thanks, both of you.. I am running Pacestter, in the frame headers, they seem to be short/med length. I didn't want the exhast to be the 1st point of contact on a rock etc... So I get to save some Cash on the hydro unit. YEAH! And Thanx for the Morris tip too!
