Clutch fork? T5

Iím having trouble finding the proper clutch fork for my setup. We have checked several, they bind against the release bearing thus destroying it. What is the correct fork part number?
I have a 403 bell housing and 10.5 clutch, flywheel etc. with a T5 transmission.

Richard --- I used what was already mounted in my '403' bell.

here are some pictures ; if that will help. I did remove my 'clutch fork' and looked for a number , I did NOT see one. My clutch is working good (for over a year, now. 1st drive ; March 17, 2018.


Pictures :


#1 --



#2 --



#3 --



#4 --



#5 --



#6 -- This was when I was going with my "Saginaw 4 speed" ------

the 'fork' was already with my bell .



#7 --' 403 ' bell as used on my '250 - 6 with my T 5 trans (with no adapter plate ----- bolted onto the 403 , just like my 'Saginaw' .




I think that I have a New Clutch FORK , that I bought from
… "Chevy - 2 - only" --- when I bought all my pedals and clutch linkage. If I remember right -- I Did put the 2 forks side - by - side, and compared them. BUT -- I did - not - take any picture. The (my) new fork is in the shop , I can look at it tomorrow ------- it may have on "part NUMBER ON IT" .


All My pedals & linkage (z-bar , & rods are stock parts -- to fit a 69 Nova) .

just trying too help out ----- jim

so, I go to the shop; I found the box that my new 'clutch bellhousing fork' came in (no fork inside of box). Maybe I did use that new fork ----- because, I did find my two 'old forks'. I compared those --- they are Very Close --- I did take some pictures , side - by - side …… only real difference was one fork is about an inch longer -- on the very outer - end … (I wouldn't think that would matter ? ? ).

The Part Number on the BOX -- 18009 (came in a change-over-kit … from Chevy-2-only -- that may be their Part Number).

there was another # on the box also : " W-692 … 67 - 72 'clutch fork " .


FYI : just looked in the newest 'Classic Industries' catalog , page - 542.


(I used the stock --- short throw-out bearing , with my set-up).


glad too hear you have it covered ……. jim
