Met a young man in a 72 wagoneer

I met a young man today in a 72 Wagoneer and learn something I did not know. It came stock with a 304. The decal on the inner fender said 304 and the air breather said 304 and yes I checked the engine it was a 304. He was having a clutch problem, his cable is sticking. Does anyone know where he can get one.

The 304 was indeed an option in 71/72 but the clutch cable thing doesn't sound right. I don't have a 72 wag and can't imagine two different systems since my 72 truck is all linkage not cable. My first guess is the cable is an after market lash up.

Cable was the only clutch linkage in 1972.

That was the way I felt about the cable, but after crawing under it and looking it over I did not see where there were any linkage or bracket or holes in the firewall for manual linkage. and this cable look stock.
If any one has any kind of picture of the 72 set up please let me know.

Not committing to the "only" linkage in 72 but after a search through the TSM a cable was used in 72. Thanks for the heads up.

'72-'73 had the AMC 304 as an option in the FSJs.

EDIT: Actually Joe has it down. The guy knows more than I do

if it helps, according to the parts catalog, the cable parts number is 998 794 for the standard transmission and 999 052 for the 4speed transmission

An old chiltons I have shows the cable for a '72 FSJ, so I guess it was used. The full cable, about a 6 ft length, was used in Jeepsters and I think CJ's. It was, politely saying, subpar. The one in my jeepster stretched and finally pulled the sleeve up through the floor. I've converted to hydraulic using an XJ cherokee master and hard line and an aftermarket slave and never looked back.

Yup. They are great in concept, but the cables would seize up in the sheath badly. Jeep changed back to mechanical linkage in 1973, and there was a service bulletin and retrofit kit to convert the cable-equipped vehicles to the later bellcrank setup.

You might be able to use a universal cable from McMaster-Carr or such to replace the original cable. http://www.mcmaster.com/#push/pull-c...-cable/=f6dhrz Or convert to hydraulic, as suggested above.

Yep, I am not to old that I can not learn something. The guy told me it had plenty of power and I told him that the early 304 had more HP than the later 360 and try to expland how they cut the HP back in 74.

Old6inarow has a clutch cable on his 72 J2000 with a 6cyl. If I remember right he had a heck of a time finding one to replace it.

Jersey Joe gave me a good lead called Control Cable Inc. in CA. looks like if they don't have it they can make it. Good information.
