Picture needed

i NEED A PICTURE OF A CJ TUB LEFT SIDE WHERE THE CLUTCH ROD POKES THROUGH THE FIREWALL. I AM PUTTING A WRANGLER TUB ON AND THEY HAD HYDRAULIC CLUTCHES SO NO PROVISION FOR A MANUAL CLUTCH ROD. I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE I POKE THE HOLE THROUGH IN THE RIGHT SPOT.

AND YOU HAVE DECIDED NOT TO CONVERT TO A HYDRAULIC CLUTCH? WHY ARE WE YELLING AT EACH OTHER?

I have a 1978 and an Ď80 tub. I can measure but I donít know 100% that it is the same any your Ď85.

Not yelling

Sorry I have very poor eye sight and capitals make it easier for me to read. Sorry. I have everything set up for the stock clutch and would rather not run a hydraulic unless you talk me into it! LOL

clutch

I may have listed the wrong year. T he one I took apart was possibly not an 85. There is mechanical linkage and I have already prepped to use it. Not really interested in the Hydraulic set up.

Here's a picture of the location from measurements I took off of my 84' tub to be transferred to the Replica-Tub I replaced it with years ago.

Establish the 10-5/8" center line first and foremost from the outside edge of the tub. You must make the hole 1-5/16"W x 1-5/8"L as the opening is elongated for the clutch rod clearance.

My 4 cylinder model was hydraulic from the factory, my Brother-in-law's 86 with the 258 was linkage from the factory.

Looks like you got the info you need to pole the hole in the firewall.

Every 20 minute job is just one broken bolt away from a three day ordeal.

You didn’t list any year for anything. I was going by the 1985 in your profile.

My ‘78 had mechanical linkage and the donor ‘80 tub was hydraulic. I figured everything had gone hydraulic by the mid 80’s.

My 85 had a mechanical clutch mechanism.

I believe only 4 bangers had the hydraulic clutch. My 80 was a 4 cyl and had the hydraulic setup which was transferred to my current setup.

That's true, only the 4 cylinder equipped CJ's had the hydraulic clutch from the factory, all others were mechanically linked as far as I know.

My wife's 84' came equipped with the 4 cylinder engine and hydraulic clutch.

Agree to disagree. I have had both and IMO, a properly functioning hydraulic clutch beats a properly adjusted linkage clutch any day. Admittedly, getting the "properly adjusted" aspect can be a bit challenging when building or retrofitting a hydraulic system from scratch, but for me it is more than a fair trade for not having to worry about pivot point wear, plastic bushings, pivot point brackets pulling out of the bellhousing, bent pushrods, lost pushrods, etc.

Everybody else says the Heim stuff is just as good-----They were not around over 10 years ago when I made mine EZ and bullet proof with longevity.
