Questions: I have a 1948 cj2a. I bought your bell crank repair kit and found the mounting bracket that's welded to the frame under the radiator crossmember is worn out a bit. The new shaft wiggles around to much for comfort. Is there a brass bushing or a replacement bracket available? Thank you.
Question By: Kevin on Jul 15 2019 12:45 AM
You may have to try to fabricate and repair your old bracket or even tack the pin in place.

Questions: How tight should the castle nut be? I can't locate a spec for it in the manual.
Question By: Les Berg on Mar 22 2018 10:52 PM
I dont believe there is a spec but will check. You want it tight enough not to bind but have no side to side slop either.

Questions: You say this fits up to serial number 199079, I have serial number 27441 and this is the closest one to mine that I have found on your website. the only difference is mine has a bushing not needle bearings. I would actually prefer needle bearings as long as there would not be any other issues? Can you shed some light on this?

Questions: Finally got the taper pin out, is the 3/4 shaft with the castle nut that holds the Bell Crank part # 915762 also tapered? If not which way would you beat it out, from the top or the bottom? Thanks Dopug
Question By: Doug on Dec 3 2013 12:00 AM
I believe the taper goes down. You need to drive it out from the small side.

Questions: I have the 3/4 Bellcrank (downfacing ball) and your kit. Do I recess the two caged needle bearings inside the bellcrank hub deep enough to allow the grease seals to be flush with the outer hub surface, or a bit proud of the surface? It appears that if I recess them too far, I will cover, or obstruct, the grease fitting port. Thanks and regards, Jeff
Question By: Jeff on Mar 25 2013 12:00 AM
They stick out just a bit so you shouldnt have any trouble.
