Default 70 351c. Z bar HELP

I'm trying to buy all the parts I need
To do my 4 speed swap to my 70 351c
Mach.

Will a 351w z bar kit work with my 351c?

I don't see any Cleveland z bar kits out there
For sale. And I'll be running headers.

Thanks for any help and info

Mustangs unlimited used to carry the 351c z bar.

Great time to go hydraulic - do the $$$ numbers, might not be so bad at this point...

I would like to keep to the original z bar set
Up.

Some mustang forums say a 351w will
Work and some say they won't.

I'm sure other people on here have had
This problem ?

I think several 289/351 z bars might work depending on your headers.
I bought my z bar from mustangs unlimited several years ago
It is for a 70 with a 351c

Back in 71/72 installed a highly modified 351C in my 69 GT350 no issues using the 351W Z bar that came with the car. Only issue was it took 3 days to figure how to install it using 2 1/8 hooker super comp headers.

I know headers may be a problem,

I'm looking at jba headers and maybe a jba z bar, but not sure if they make 351c headers.

still don't know what's the best headers to use?

I have a 351 C with Hooker Comp headers for a '70 Mustang in my '67 and I used the 289 z bar with no problems.

I think all the SBF bars were the same. Think the 250 6 was the same too. 220 6 tube was longer I think. Have all of them aroud here somewere.

I can tell you that in '67 the I6 had a different Z-bar than the 289. I know because I had to swap out the original one during my v8 swap.

I also know that the 289 Hi-Po cars had a different Z-bar, which is not available (AFAIK). I have heard rumors that the Boss302 Z-bar will fit, but I cannot confirm that.

I installed a 351C in a 69' and the stock 69' bar worked fine.

You could always call Modern Driveline and go with a cable clutch setup.
