76Da block - Clutch Fork

Post #1 by hucklburry » Wed Oct 17, 2018 8:30 pm

I picked up a 76DA blocked engine, and I have the bellhousing, but I didn't snag the clutch fork and didn't think much of it.

Well I should have. I am using a 66 Bronco clutch fork and it just has to be too long, the throwout bearing is off to the right of center.

The Bronco has a 146 tooth or so flywheel, it was behind a US 170 six. That is the clutch fork I was trying to use.

Is there a US application with a clutch fork that would work? Maybe a 65 mustang or something?

Rocklord, can you measure a clutch fork, if you can find it, I think you'd have one laying around?? Maybe from the "crease" where it rides on the bellhousing tab to the end where the throwout bearing mounts?

Jim,
The clutch fork I have is 9-1/2" long tip to tip. The measurement from the pivot (crease) to the end of the fork is 3-5/8".
I'll send you some pix that I took when I get them downloaded.

Hope this helps,
Dan
