Frame mounting for Z-bar picture?
« on: May 27, 2008, 03:32:43 PM »
Does anyone have a picture of their frame bracket and z-bar assembly with measurements on the length of the z-bar?  I am putting together my extras for the local swap meet next month and don't want to mislead anyone.  I parted out this mid 70's truck several years ago of all the stick conversion stuff and from what I remember it is correct.  I took out the steering column, pedals, rod to the z-bar, frame bracket and z-bar. All I have is the hydraulic setup up on my mid 80's to compare it to.  Thanks in advance.

Do you mean for the clutch?

Yes, looking for actual pics to compare with mine to make sure what I have is from a Chevy.  I have parted out many vehicles over the years and don't want to give anyone the wrong stuff.  I did part a Ford truck out once but don't think I took the clutch stuff, just the tranny which I sold right away.  Thanks.

Chris, here is a couple of pics.  Also what years did they have the older splined end on the steering column shaft?  Thanks in advance.

That is the correct ones for the pre-83 mechanical setup.

Thanks for the info.  Do you know when GM went to the current steering shaft as opposed to the splined version?

Cool, thanks so 73-78, then 79-83 and 84-87 for the integrated wiper/dimmer.  I appreciate the response back.
