Questions & Answers
Questions: Can I change out my clutch release cable with the clutch release fork and transmission still together? May be a dumb question but I’d like to change out my release cable with everything still intact in the Jeep. Thanks.

Yes, there is an access cover ontop of the bellhousing that allows you to see down in there. The ball on the cable just goes thru the slot in the fork and it kept under tension.

Questions: I have read that Willys installed a shorter clutch release cable (10.25" #640124) on the earliest models of the M38. The cable currently on my M38 is 11.25" but the clutch disengages too soon (at about 1" off the floorboard). The threaded portion of my current cable is not long enough to make up the 1" difference. !s it possible that I need the shorter cable in order to get the clutch to engage/disengage further from the floorboard?

A5120 is the shortest cable i have. That may work once adjusted.

Questions: Is this the cable that gets connected to the crossmember frame on the drivers side through the frame member hole?

It connects to the clutch bellcrank via a clevis and runs forward to the clutch release fork in the bellhousing.
