Questions & Answers
Questions: My jeep needs a new bell crank and I have one, but it is the wrong style (points up instead of down). Can I convert from a pointing down bell crank to a pointing up by buying the appropriate bell crank repair kit and drag link?
Question By: David Richard on May 22 2020 11:48 PM
The main problem with that idea is that no one makes the early style drag link. They are only available good used. Give us a call toll free and we can get you set up. 888.648.4923. Thanks

Questions: The bellcrank on my '61 CJ-3b has a 7/8" brass bushing pressed into the steel center. I just bought a bell crank repair kit for you to remove "slop" from the unit. Do I need to drill or press out the brass bushing or replace the bell crank. If replacing, does 647008 have the right diameter to work with the repair kit (920556) I have?
Question By: Ellis Johnson on Apr 28 2019 2:05 PM
The bellcrank repair kit just requires your bellcrank. Any old bushings are not used.

Questions: I just installed new bell crank & repair kit and steering is very stiff, even with front wheels off the ground. Could I have overtightened something? Any suggestions? Thanks
Question By: jim on Jun 19 2018 12:56 PM
I would double check it by disconnecting the tie rods and drag link to confirm. You may want to check your king pins too and inside the gear box.

Questions: I believe I have a 48 cj2a I do I know for sure. I have a 3/4 bellcrank shaft I and when I install the bellcrank that bends up the shaft hits the frame and the one that bends down doesn't work for my shaft do I have the wrong shaft if so is I possible to cut off the end and turn it so it fits the one that bends down
Question By: Shawn on Jul 26 2013 12:00 AM
Please call us toll free, we can help you ID your vehicle and get you fixed up. If you are a 3/4 shaft then your bellcrank bends down and this is no the part for you. These are for 7/8 diameter shafts.

Questions: I have a 54 Willy M38A1. The Bellcrank is very loose which means I need to repair the gears in the gear box since the bellcrank is very loose. However, I am unable to remove the Steering Wheel, thus the steering box to repair. Can this be accomplished while still in the jeep, or does this require enough space? I hope I asked this correctly.
Question By: Neil on Jan 31 2013 12:00 AM
You will really need to remove the steering wheel. Order part number: WP300 on our site. It will get you fixed up.
