Clutch fork dropping

I have a 4.0 hooked up to a T-5 and the clutch fork will drop/fall out of place after I push the pedal in a few times. This causes the Push Rod to come out. I have yet to put any springs on the fork since I cannot figure out where the opposite side attaches.

Is the fork supposed to drop? If not, can I fix it with our pulling the engine? will a strong spring hold it up? Can someone help a brother out and take a few PICS?

This is the last major thing I have to fix before I get it on the road and FINALLY DRIVE IT.

THANKS

Sean

There are 2 springs that attach to the fork. There is a small one in the bell housing and a longer one on the outside. Here is a picture of how mine is on my T5 on the outside. I have a T176 bell housing with the spring that I could get a picture of the other one if you need. I imagine it would be the same.

Fork Dropping

I have the Hydro system. I have been crawling under every CJ that I see hoping to find one I can copy.

When I get home I will crawl under mine and take some pics and post them.

Thanks
