    I switched back to the original style clutch cable. I have always had a lot of clutch chatter in reverse, but over the years I have gotten used to it. Now my son gets in the jeep every so often, when he gets the chatter he basically says "that really sucks, dad".

    So reading through our site I was reminded the '71s should have come with a clutch cable, which I knew, but I didn't realize it would solve the chattering in reverse problem until I read about it here.

    Anyway, the Jeep backs up like any car now, nice and smooth.

    Out with the roller chain linkage:

    In with the new cable from https://thejeepsterman.com/products...-commando-992533?_pos=10&_sid=2ae7cf08f&_ss=r:

    If I decide to stay with this setup I will probably switch to the stainless steel cable setup from in line tube along with the rubber bellows Kyle used on his setup. The Crown cable will find a home in the jeep's storage bin for field replacement.

    The bracket I got from Kyle @Norcal69 is in its' proper place to complete the job.

    Took a break from servicing front hubs and bearings to finish this gear carrier and trash bag. I bought a military surplus large rucksack (pack only, no frame) and made a few sewing modifications to attach it to the spare.

    20240623_202917_copy_1209x1612.jpg

    Removed extra straps and clips. Repurposed them to make the straps and clips to attach to the tire.

    20240623_204719_copy_1209x1612.jpg

    Put straps around spare at 10 o'clock, 2, and 6.

    20240623_205537_copy_1612x1209.jpg

    Snap pack into the straps. Added a small carabiner to the top strap to hold the pack while attaching to the snaps.

    20240623_205729_copy_1209x1612.jpg

    Used ruck was less than $20! Pack comes with two side pouches, drain grommets and the bottom zips out.

    This cable is night and day better than the POS Crown unit.

    And today he's sandblasting the bed for the Willys pickup. This is at Pikes Peak State College, where he's taking a summer "hobby" auto body class.

    Is a cable linkage a good idea on an intermediate Jeep? I’ve been thinking hydraulic but am not locked in to that option.

    The swinging pedal would, of course, need a completely different setup but it could still work.
    I put pedals from an intermediate CJ in the Willys wagon and a hydraulic clutch cylinder, just because. That one uses a “pull” slave cylinder rather than a pusher. A cable would accomplish the same thing.

    Finally had a chance to install side steps. They're import reproductions but seem adequate. The biggest hassle was pulling the driver's seat and gas tank to install those bolts in the floor.

    My motivation for getting them was to enable my 6 year old to get in and out of the Jeep by herself. However, I'm finding them quite handy myself.

    I'm not sure what the intermediates originally came with. Theoretically I guess it could work.

    My ‘72 and ‘74 parts donors both have/had pushrods and bell crank linkages; brackets on the frame & engine for the bell crank.

    I have now upgraded my clutch cable to an In-Line tube brand. It is very well made. The other one (OMIX) I had installed recently is rolled up and stored in the jeep tool box. I didn't ever have any trouble with the Omix but I want the best cable, I hate having to limp home with a broken clutch linkage.

    https://www.inlinetube.com/products/sftj01

    The pedal end of the cable uses a fork, the one from In-line tube is too small for the early jeep pedals, so I had to flatten it out and re-bend it, but that was no biggie.

    Here they are side by side:

    In-line tube version installed: (I really need to get the garden hose under there and rinse the dust off!)

    That is a confusing description on their part, it is a clutch cable. It certainly doesn't match a 71 CJ5's parking brake cable.
