Would someone have an original 65 manual trans V8 car that they could take a measurement for me? I am guessing it's the same 64-67 but not positive.
I have the correct front piece for the linkage from the Z bar to the clutch fork but I'm pretty sure the rear piece (right side of the picture, long pointed piece with a few inches of thread on it) that I have is too long. Could someone tell me the correct measurement for the threaded piece, tip to tip? I am converting from an automatic and have stored some of this stuff for years. Now I forget what is what!

what you have will work.
after you get everything installed.cut the second piece to size.
the length should be aprox to the nut.but dont cut it untill your all installed and ready to adjust.this will ensure you have the correct length and you will have enough for adjustment as your clutch wears in and out!
Sorry for the add on here... but looks like the right guys to know..
This post made me think I may need to order...
I have a V8 install in a couple of weeks. My clutch rod from my L6 is all one piece from the Z-bar to fork and about 12" long.
My V8 (283) is a 67 nova block. Am I going to need to get a V8 rod like the one chevy2only carries?
