Hi, We just did this conversion, to big block 468 and 4 speed. I just googled it and found a diagrahm here on nasty z/28. Or you can try Ground Up Restoration parts in Conn. I'm having a problem with clutch engagement. Also everything being new and used and having never been together before.? Right now I'm wondering if I have the correct clutch fork. Clutch will not engage. I'm sure we will sort it out. Its definately is cool though.

Hi, I used the one from Ground Up in Conn. but this one does show a lot. I noticed on the ground up site, that the clutch fork is different for certain year Camaros. My problem ended up being the clutch fork I bought on e-bay, it ended up being he wrong one, thats me trying to save a few bucks and ended up costing me another fork. The z bar for your car actually has a bend in it, as per Ground up z bars for sale. Mine is 73 and it didn't have the bend but does the job fine now. OK Art
