Problem: Avoid Release Problems on Jeep CJ


Clutch Kits Affected: 01-001, 01-010, 01-018, 01-020, 01-024

 
Check the condition of the pivot, washer, and seal attached to the end of the slave cylinder on Jeep CJ models with external slave cylinders. If any of these parts are missing, cracked, or severely worn, release problems will result. As a clutch wears, the diaphragm spring fingers move closer to the release mechanism. The diaphragm fingers on the new clutch will return to their original, lower height when installed. Excessive wear or misalignment at any of the release mechanism components will cause insufficient slave cylinder travel resulting in little or no release.

The pivot and seal are available as part number CRP113.
