Here's the one on my car, before it was refinished:

For reference, here's how it appears installed per the AIM:




Also, as a side note, I still need to touch up the bell housing bolts - they should be painted orange.

My original 69 is like the AIM. It contacts the fork at a slight angle.

Thanks for verifying.  Either way appears to work, just seems odd to have rod at angle the could increase the stress loading of the rod, especially around the connection point to the bell crank.   I installed per the AIM, and I'd guess about a 15-20% angle is present.

I'll probably install it wrong and go with what rszmjt has done....

Just looked at mine on the 68. Its installed like the AIM and it contacts the fork at an angle. Not sure if its right but its been working hard for 5 years. I can't remember why I didn't install it from the other side (straight). I'll check my original 69 later to see if its the same.

Thanks.  I can force it to fit if installed per the AIM, just seems really weird.  Curious how your '69 is set-up.

The clutch bell crank measured at 9 inches, so most likely correct  SB version.  Anyone else experience this issue?  I'm guessing it won't matter, but just puzzling why it's opposite of AIM  diagram.

Thanks Mike.  I'll measure the tube length tonight and see which version I might have.

Are you sure you have the correct Z-bar?

Mike

Not sure.  I assumed it's correct, but not sure.   How can I verify it's correct?   
9  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Clutch Lower Push Rod Alignment & AIM? on: July 07, 2014, 11:34:22 AM
I've been attempting to assembly the Clutch Bell Crank and Lower Clutch Push Rod.  If I follow the AIM, it appears there is a major mis-alignment with the lower push rod and the clutch fork.  If I flip the push rod to the other side of the bell crank arm, it appears to align well.

What is correct?   Do I have some underlying alignment issue with the Bell Crank & Clutch Fork?   

Here's the situation:

AIM Diagram for reference:




Lower Clutch Rod, installed per the AIM:  Note big alignment gap:




If I install the push rod on the other side of the arm, (opposite side of what the AIM suggests), it appears to align just fine.  What is correct??

Here's my info:

Hans L:   04B    VN    Z28  No Bracket

It's an RS as well if that matters...probably not.

I have pre-restoration pictures and did the restoration myself.  I can't find any signs of the bracket.  Pretty sure it was never there.

Here's some pics - I don't have a the exact pic with the location, but you can tell from these, it's not there.

To clarify Gary, single exhaust usage only, but ALL cars got it regardless.

Hmmm...just checked my '69 Van Nuys Built Z and no bracket.  Original floor pans.  No sign it was removed.   Sure all cars go it?   I don't have a good picture of that area, but can post later.

No idea on the points that could/would be deducted, but if it's a significant concern, pretty sure you can have the boss area correctly repaired.   Contact Jerry MacNeish - he's a top Camaro judge and maybe able to give you an idea on the deduct and he can also fix it.   Here's his site:  http://z28camaro.com/wp/restoration-services/

He restored my Camaro's Z drive line including some intake manifold aluminum repair - can't tell it was repaired.

If you are looking for excellent pretty much exact reproductions, Cranes Corvette has really nice ones.   Expensive, but pretty much exact.  He makes specific versions for all the applications.   I bought a set for my Chevelle.

Great to know.  I was aware of Pilkington's classic glass, but wasn't aware you had to be so specific.   Getting ready to order front and rear glass soon so your post's timing is good!
