    they make it look so easy, in under 4 minutes! the only thing I am concerned with is the replacing the clutch release cable without taking the motor and tranny apart. it doesn't seem possible.

    You can do it easily enough. The clutch fork has a slot in the end to slip the cable through. Just carefully move the old one forward a bit and slide it off, opposite with new one. Is there some kind of inspection hole on the T98?

    Of course I meant the bellhousing when I typed this originally.

    Steps I took to replace the Bellcrank cross shaft. I unfastened the cross shaft ball stud bracket from the frame and slide the shaft forward (towards the engine.) The clutch cable becomes slack and I was able to disconnect it from the clutch fork slot. Then I took a measurement at the treads so when I unscrewed the old I would have a close length of the new cable when reinstalling. Put the new ball stud in on the transmission side (just like in the video for the rest of the cross shaft procedure) but before I slid the Bellcrank in it's final position, I reattached the new clutch cable. Now when you slide the shaft to the mounting holes on the frame rail, you will be tensioning the cable at the same time. Took only about an 1/2 hour, and that was from doing it underneath the jeep. Test the clutch and adjust the cable as needed.

    In the floor? No. It's not bad doing from underneath. I lay a nice heavy blanket down and a pillow (yes a pillow, lol) and a few beers beside the tools and just putter at doing it. If I had access to a hoist though...

    I understand... I saw another ad on CL yesterday for a 70's chebbie pick'em up with a 6cyl and a 'three speed with granny low'...

    every 3 speed I've driven, I always wanted another gear up or down... didn't matter... but alas, I still only had 4 if I counted reverse...

    thinking about it, the old forest service rigs we used to drive, from the fire engine to the crew buggies, all were cornbinders, all had those fangled three speeds with granny lows... but they also had that little red button a finger's reach from the shift knob, pull / push the button, let off the gas (and or clutch - dbl-clutch) at the right rpm, and click, a new gear... a split rear-end... so you could have a lot of fun shifting / ranging the gears on the flats and uphills, (but never split on the downs...). Ahh the fun of the old days...

    sorry, drug your thread sideways a little...

    I am in about the same place as you sort of, I'm just installing the t-98, will modify the bell crank it's a little orbed on the ends anyway, but I'm looking at the chain-control... there may be some other issues to overcome as well...

    Shouldn't have to modify what you just got, but......at least it is a relatively easy fix. Other thing is did they send it as a T-90 part even though you ordered for a T-98?
