    Hello
    I am converting my 73 from a turbo 350 to a Muncie M-22 and had a few questions.
    First can someone send a pic on exactly how the z-bar and frame bracket connects to the clutch rod, etc. I know there is a swivel ball on the engine block but cant get it in my head how the rest connects.
    Next my driveline yoke is too small now for the Muncie and I was told I can get a Turbo 400 yoke that would work, is this true and does anyone have a drive shaft yoke that would fit a M-22?
    Thanks
    Mike

    I'm going from 2-year old memories here but here goes:

    The frame bracket mounts on the outboard side of the driver's frame rail (by the brake master cylinder).

    The z-bar then is simply installed (block stud end first) and then the other end bolts into the notch on the frame bracket.

    Then, the plunger rod that attaches to your clutch pedal clips onto the z-bar arm with a retainer clip.

    I'll get you a pic later (BB here, but same scenario).


    EDIT: I found this in another member's build thread (73 Firechicken)

    here is the frame mount installed.

    I have the whole driveshaft from my 71 that had an M22 in it if you want it. I converted to a 5 speed

    Ok I get how it goes now...thanks, and I surely can use at least the yoke, it would probably be cheaper on shipping than the whole driveline. How much would you like for it?
    Thanks Mike

    Make sure your driveshaft is the right length before you just get the yoke. There were a couple lengths for our cars depending on the trans.

    When I bought my driveshaft a year or so ago I got it off ebay and shipping was actually pretty reasonable. he put it in a long cardboard tube with caps on it. I still have the tube. I just installed it couple days ago.
