As you can see on the maintenance page, i am concerned about the amount of adjustment left (not much) on a new clutch in a 1968 with L35 with M20. I have a 1 piece rod and swivel. The shop manual says uas 2 piece rod on a Camaro V8. Most suppliers say the opposite. My original was 1 pc but who knows.

Any inputs?

All the B/B 4 speed cars used the 1 piece clutch rod with swivel, the S/B 4 speed cars used a 2 piece clutch rod, this is shown in my 67-70 Camaro GM parts book.

Hi copo

Very odd the 68 service manual says ALL Camaro and Chevy II V8 use 2 piece and L6 use one piece.  Hmmmm but PN shouldn't lie.

The '67-'69s used the same subframe and clutch linkages whether SB or BB from my experience, and all had the same geometry. Back in the day I helped a friend swap a 396 into a '69 where a (gaaaccckkkkkkk) 307 had been, and everything went back flawlesssly using the SB parts with the 396. I've never seen a 1-piece clutch rod with no adjustment on a Camaro--assuming this is the rod between the cross-shaft and the clutch release lever in the bellhousing. Can someone clarify what constitutes a 2-piece clutch rod? I'm confused. By its design the base clutch rod is 2-piece because it has a female body attached to the cross-shaft with a male threaded rod that contacts the release lever. I've never heard of a mechanical 3-piece clutch linkage, which is the 2-piece you you guys suggest. Maybe its semantics. Maybe I'm just dense, but they all had a pushrod from the clutch pedal to the cross-shaft, then an adjustable rod from the cross-shaft to the release fork in the bellhousing. Call it oversimplification, but I still think Arno has mismatched clutch components. There is simply no other reason he has such limited adjustment. Good luck, Arno, and when you resolve this, please post it. I am damn curious.

I believe the confusion is with the shop manual using the language " 2 piece rod on a Camaro V8".  It's just to general a statement in this case.  The Parts Books clarify it well.  The Camaro V8 (8 cyl except the 396's) use the 2 piece and the 396's use a one piece design.  6 cyl's also use a 1 piece design.
