My CJ3B has a cable just below the clutch release cable with a ball end attached to a forked fitting on the transmission crossmember and a threaded end going forward that is hanging loose. Is this an engine stay cable and what does the threaded end attach to?

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Sounds like a stay cable but that is usually on opposite side of engine. Prob your hand brake cable. Please email

I have heard that these were used on the T86-AA and V6 combination on CJ5s in 1966 and 1967. Will this one fit between the mount on the cross member and the bellhousing? My OEM crossmember has the post for the ball.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
These really would be specific to the CJ-2A only.

Is the engine stay cable ised on a 1948 cj2a? If so where is it located on the motor. I can't find where.

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
Yes, you should have a spot for it on the lower passenger side and a slot on your cross member.

Does this cable fit the 1951 cj3a as well? (L134 engine)

Willys Jeep Parts Tech:
They really didint use this on your CJ-3A but length wise i would think its the same.

what is the purpose of this cable?

WIllys Jeep Parts Tech:
These were to really tie together the drivetrain in hard use.
