Hello everyone,

Just wondering if any one can help, I have a BBC and a Super T-10 going into my 55 and I was wondering if any one knew what clutch release fork to use, straight out from the bell housing or out and down ? I'm using regular alum. bellhousing as well for now. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, Jim

I am using the reproduction of the factory type arm with the clevis pin connection to the bell crank (z-bar) as some corvette arms use. It fits the Lakewood scatter shield well and attaches to the factory mechaical linkage. It comes straight out horizontally but has a few bends going forward. From the front or rear it would appear straight. 454/M-20 and 11" hays 3-finger clutch.

Use the repro 57 fork. Don't use the Lakewood fork, it is for a Camaro and isn't the right length or hookup.

If you have a 55 or 56, you'll need the lower clutch linkage rod (the one from the z bar to the fork) too. You can keep the rest of the 55-56 linkage including the z bar.

You could also use the stock 55 or 56 fork and lower rod, but the 57 design is a better one anyway. I guess that's one reason it's the only one reproduced.
