Try modeling the clevis as a separate family, then nesting and constraining it. That seems to work out the best when you are trying to rotate elements.

Here is one that I made.  The key for me to make this work was to have a reference line between the two pin locations and then draw the clevis attached to the reference line.  This one is made for a specific case (1 1/2" diameter rod / 3 1/2 clevis) but could easily be made more parametric.

 

See if this does what you wanted.

I modeled this as a line based object.
