I would fill from the zerk on the shaft until you see the boots just start to balloon out showing that you have the tube and pivots full of grease.

The rubber in the Crown boots are much better now. Mine have been on for two years and show no sign of weather cracking.

just checking back in and I had purchased the Crown rebuild kit and it appears to be great and finished today putting all back together BUT, now I checked my pics of when I took it off and can see where it bolts to firewall but where does the other end attach? I didnt take as good a pic as I thought and after replacing the engine i am not sure where to mount the other end of the pivot, duh! any pic would be appreciated or just plain english. Thanks Mike

My stuff needed a good cleaning when I too k my pic.

Fourtrail has got to be a good housewife with his being that clean.

I posted my pic to show the position of the grease fitting.

You can mistakenly "Flip" the bell crank (Yes, it will wrongly fit!) and now the "longer arm" is not connecting with the clutch pedal rod.

It's now harder to push the pedal, you have lost mechanical advantage.

Moral of my story---in the relaxed position---the grease fitting points downward

here I am again and thanks again for both your pics cause after trying to install the pivot I realize that I am missing the adjuster assembly. It was never there. My son bought the Jeep sight unseen and we knew it had a blown engine so when delivered it was pushed into the shop and not familiar with Jeeps when taking it apart I didnt catch that it was missing the adjuster. But your pics both show it so I assume I should have one also. As the famous philosopher Roseann Roseannadana said "its always something"

There's also a rubber slip on bumper, or snubber, at the end of the Adjuster to eliminate rub through or noise as you engage the clutch fork in and out. Not many people know its suppose to be there.

Clutch rod

Nice. I used the plastic ice cream cone shaped point that comes on the AMX's set up

Keith,

Is there a source for the snubber?

clutch pivot arm

Yes, a short piece of rubber vacuum hose cut to length.
The steel tip of the Adjuster still makes contact with the clutch fork. The snubber just slips over the end of it. A little grease on the ball end enures squeak free operation.
AMC/Jeep actually called it a Seal P/N: J313 0998.
