This was sent to us by our customer, Dowie Soetenga a Mechanical Design Engineer. We wanted to share it.
CJ-3A Foot Control Mod:
I took it upon myself to re-engineer the CJ-3A foot controls using modern engineering and Kaiser Willys parts. I brought all the Kaiser Willys parts into CAD and did a full dimensional analysis. I thought I would share with you my final design.
I basically took the parts I bought from you and modified them to accommodate bronze sleeve bearings, bronze thrust bearings, precision shims, spherical ball end links, and grease fittings on the clutch release bellcrank. The OEM design has its issues of which I’m sure you are well aware. This design uses parts used in modern foot control and linkage engineering. It works perfect with no slop, and glides like glass.
Thanks again for all your help in getting my Willys restored.
