I am guessing a new front sight and adding something back aways on the barrel to support the other end of the cleaning rod. Be my luck it can't be done but i think i'd like the look of it.

Nice! You might also look for a different gas tube with a built in guide for the cleaning rod. I am sure a standard RPK GT would fit, but you would need to measure.

I might get lucky and be able to drill through the collar that came with ar style foregrip to support that end of the cleaning rod. s it turned out the yugo fsb had no bayonet lug so i am going to do some more research on the fsb before i do anything. I really like the look of cleaning rods on ak rifles so now its a must for my 54 even though ots a 20" barrel.

You might try picking up one of the Romanian RPK kits that are still around and cannibalizing that one. In any case, post a picture when you get it up, I wanna see how this thing comes out!

If the cleaning rod will stick to a magnet (not home or I'd know), you can get a strong little, rare earth magnet [neodymium?] and put a spot of JB Weld under current FSB and it should hold the rod pretty good. I did something similar where my bayonet lug was ground on side to make non-functional and I put a magnet next to lug, and hold the bayonet on great for display and shaking around.
