Re: 67 Z bars and clutch rods, OEM and repop

Who sells the best clutch rod for a 67.

According to the catalogs of NPD and Ground Up......they are very different.

I have been using my clutch rod from a kit I got from OPG back about 20 years ago, worked fine on my car, but I have been having to try and bend it with a torch to get the right angle so I dont hit the open in the firewall with it. You would think my Dads 67 would fit just like my 67, NOT.

67 chevelle malibu / SS/ custom

Currently undergoing a metal work to remove all rust, if I ever get there.

Cant decide on prostreet or cruiser with a 4 speed.

That is the same problem I got from a 67 pushrod from NPD.

The other (smaller bend) pushrod is from OPG about 20 years ago.

Of course, Im in the process of making the smaller bend one work on my Dads 67

Topic: Clutch Spring L Bracket Location Measurements for 1966 and 1967 Chevelles with 4 speed Transmissions. I have searched extensively for the correct measurements for locating the Clutch Spring L Bracket and have found a Post and Photos provided by Terry a.k.a. xoldschlracer66 on chevelles.com The web addresses are firewall clutch return spring bracket and http://s776.photobucket.com/user/twa...09992.jpg.html The measurements are 2 1/2" inches under a floor lip (which is located below the speedometer hole for automatic trans) and 4 1/2" inches starting from the left side of body support bracket. See attached Terry Photos.

Awesome reference sticky!! Is there a difference between a big block and small block Z bar and rods on a mid/late 67 Chevelle? If so, what is the difference and how can you determine the difference?
