it can also be from a 63-66 GMC which had a different zbar than the chev one. it also appears to be longer as the frame end bracket sticks out over the side of the frame

linkage is designed that it runs true or should align where it joins and be friction free - not be able to bind as is the case where the linkage rod joins at the zbar. there is the potential for it to bind on that corner when the pedal is depressed which can be intermittent as it going into gear 1 time and not the next or the difference as to how one driver depresses the clutch vs another. it also looks that it may have also have the opportunity to bind where it comes out of the firewall. there could be a combination of other things accumulating the problem such as worn shifter forks if they are worn. if you have a known problem area that should eliminated

  • Eric_Gary132 Said:
there's around 2 to 3 inches of releasing the clutch before it engages.

we had 2 shops drive it and at first they told us it drove fine when they test drove it and we know it does not. Sometimes it will work and sometimes it will not and it repeats this process.

oh and correct me if I'm wrong but, I belive the zbar in our truck is a 67-72 zbar or a 73-84 zbar, not the correct years to use with mechanical linkage in this truck, which you said was a 63-66 zbar. Which would explain the incorrect position of the arm of the zbar in this truck, the upper arm in particular that the upper rod connects to.

My rookie idea is that they took any old zbar they could find and forced it in or somehow cut it shorter to fit just enough to connect the rods to it, rather than getting the correct parts.

I found a 63-66 clutch zbar here:

the one thing that I will note is that you never ever answer the full questions. here you answered 1 out of 3 and then started rambling on about another aspect of it.
sometimes it is like trying to pull teeth from a chicken

I did get 1 private nbr call just 3;00 this afternoon but it was a hangup when I answered it. I do get calls from down there quite frequently so it does work
my nbr is a business nbr and has been working for me for just over 25 years at this location

My hat is off to you sir, for going the extra mile in helping this lad & his Grampa fix their truck.

It's people like you, Ron, that make this site what it is! (colorful comments included )

A sincere salute to "The Captain"!
