clutch linkage

My older brother used to have the Warn franchise in Reno Nevada and did a lot of Jeep 4 X 4 engine swaps and installed a lot of other equipment. I followed his suggestions when I did the first V 8 swap into my jeepster. I moved the clutch linkage cross bar back into the chassis, made new brackets to mount the pivot brackets then ran longer linkage rods foreward, I had to drill a hole in the end of the clutch fork and used a half ball with the threaded hole on the end of actuating rod for adjustment. Also the relocated and longer rods made less movement of the clutch pedal from engine torque rocking the engine on the mounts
