    As some of you may remember I was wondering a while back about how to fix my clutch linkage that kept slipping off any time that my engine torqued any amount. The pivot rod that goes from the frame to the bell housing kept slipping off the bellhousing. Well, I finally got where I had had enough of it. So, I welded a 3/4" extension on the bell housing end. Since then I haven't had a problem with it, even when I tested it and tried to get it slip off.

    Just wanted to give some small thing back to this board. Happy wheelin all.

    I hadn't thought about going that direction with it, but I was looking for a cheap and quick fix. And seeing as how my dad has all the important tools and scrap it just seemed like it fit the bill.

    ya, the threaded rod and drillin a hole works killer, i dont like to weld stuff that will need to be eventually taken apart..

    I didn't weld it in place, I just welded a 3/4 extension on it since it seemed to barely be holding on on level ground.

    It was a little harder to put back on, but I figured that if it was harder to put on it would be harder to come off when I'm wheeling. Which I just back from putting it through some more testing, and it seems to working great.
