I just got the rebuild kit for the clutch equalizer bar, What is the purpose of the large felt washers?? Do you lube them or something.
Thanks, any advice on the z-bar refirb will be appreciated.

The large felt washers help hold grease into the ball pivot areas, and keep dirt out. A primitive seal for the ends of the z-bar. Did you get new plastic pivot balls?

Use wheel bearing grease inside the tubing and around the "balls". Don't grease the felt washers, that'll happen on its own. Good luck

That's a great idea, my CJ-7 Jeep is that way from the factory. Just keep the tube full of grease.
