Anyone have factory 4 speed parts

Post by JF74chevelle on Wed Dec 12, 2018 1:08 am

Looking for some help. The manual transmission parts for our cars out there are no very accurate I think. Can anyone provide me with pictures of factory 4 speed parts for our cars. Ex: zbar and fork etc. and maybe some measurements. I know itís a far stretch since there werenít many 4 speed cars produced. Any help is appreciated and if anyone is sellin these parts Iíd like to buy as well.

I have all my factory parts out of the car and should be able to help you.

What kind of problems are you having?? If your having engagement or disengagement problems, did you dial in the bellhousing and do a parallel check flywheel face to bellhousing face on both surfaces? If everything else is ok, those are two issues that need to be addressed. Are you using a real bronze pilot bushing thats NON magnetic? Very important and not that easy to find.

No issues right now with the linkage or anything. I just would like pictures of the original stuff and maybe measurements of the z-bar to get a comparison to the ones I have.

Sure. Heres what I have.

My original 73 Z bar main pivot tube measures 8 3/4" in overall length.
Measuring up from the tube to center of the pedal pushrod hole is 3 3/4"
Measuring down from the tube to the center of the adjustment rod hole is 4 1/4". Factory part number is 3994486.

Clutch forks had a change over in 72-73 but it really makes no difference, you can use either. Factory fork is part number 3892632 and it has been superseded I would assume. That part number measures about 10 1/4" overall and is considered the OLD style. The newer style measures about 11" overall. GM switched to the slightly longer one because it gave more leverage hence easier pedal feel. The newer style falls undeer part number 5014090 and also Dorman part number 14550.

As for the bearing end of the fork. The small thin metal tabs go INSIDE the throwout bearings groove. If you dont put it in that way it will rattle and jiggle.

Thank you joe, my z-bar measured exactly what you have. Currently Iím running the longer clutch fork and I think Iíll stick with that. I also have the 632 shorter one but idk if Iíll run that one

Stick with the longer one. Better leverage and it also has the "ears" for more strength before the curve.
