1972 jimmy need new clutch linkage sm465 hydraulic

Coming back from work yesterday my clutch linkage went out on me couldn't even get into neutral this part gave out . Anybody know where I can get replacement 350 with sm465 4x4 np205 hydraulic setup
This is another picture of my custom clutch rod lol the part with an arrow has a clamp that is supposed to tighten down and is adjustable but the teeth on the clamp are worn down and just spins when I push the clutch in and doesn't disengage clutch anymore what are you guys with conversion kits running for master cylinders and linkage

Re: 1972 jimmy need new clutch linkage sm465 hydraulic

Custom isn't the word I would use to describe that set up. I think Mac Gyvered is more appropriate. I can't speak for the hydraulics side of this system, but I can speak for the pedal assembly with the rotating lever arm. On a non-Mac Gyvered clutch pedal assembly, the lever arm is attached to the horizontal shaft with splines and a pinch bolt. Sounds like your splines are wiped out, or your pinch bolt is loose or non-existent. I'm assuming that the piece of channel iron is welded onto the stock lever arm, covering up the splined end of the shaft and pinch bolt.

I just ended up in welding the hell out of that joint on the bracket and made a new pushrod out of an eyebolt,carriage bolt and turnbuckle works 👍
