So, been doing several mods to 'Betty' over the last couple of years and the latest was installing an Class M clutch rod setup,?


as part of a compliance with that JP article regarding CJ fixes/upkeep a couple of months back.
My question is, despite the instructions (sketchy as they were) they were clear that no parts of the OE lower rod setup are to be used in conjunction with the Class M. So they have the threaded lower clutch rod end in contact with the throwout bearing arm directly. The OE? setup used a ball end threaded sleeve,

apparently to ease griding against the thowout arm. Any ideas if this is kosher?

Contacted the manufacturer and their response was "There are no additional pieces to the kit. The threaded rod insert is designed to recess against the clutch fork. We have been selling them for many years this way and have never heard of one excessively wearing the clutch fork. However, if you would like to put an acorn nut on the end of yours that would be fine and it would not negatively effect the linkage kit. The threads on that rod are 3/8" - 24 (fine thread)."
So I think I'm going this was to err on the side of caution. Cool
