Default Clutch linkage pictures, or assembly schematics

I'm looking for a schematic type picture of all the clutch linkage for the 1967 model year, and a 4 speed. I'm in the process of getting parts to rebuild mine, and the parts they have seem confusing. Any help would be great. Thanks!

If you tell Glazier/Nolan what you need, they'll do the list for you.

Ok. But for my personal knowledge, it would be nice to know what's what. Thanks!

Have you look at the '67 Ford shop manual. Although not great pics it was of help to me as I bought my car all in a box, lots missing.

My portable hard drive crashed so I don't have too many pictures of the linkage installed.

Here are all the parts from my manual transmission '67. The top rod in the picture connects to the hole adjacent to it on the Z bar. At the bottom of the picture, there is a bar which connects to the other side of the Z bar and the pedal assembly. The small bracket with two bolt holes mounts to the frame rail on the driver side below the steering column. The tube section of the Z bar slides on to it and the other side of the z bar tube is attached to the block using the ball shaped piece.

Everything is laid out in the picture as it is installed in the car. This is the best I have. I hope it helps.

Perfect! And thanks to your picture and doing some research, i've realized that the clutch pedal rod that i have (it came with the car) is for a 69-70 mustang. It's straighter in shape compared to the one pictured above.

Since we are on the subject, i now know that the strange little bracket that attaches with the 2 bolts from the parking brake assembly is for the z bar spring. But where on the z bar does the spring attach? is there a hole or "ear" somewhere?

Also, has anybody seen or used this kit before? http://www.barillarospeed.net/products.html

Here is a diagram of the linkage for a '65, the '67 will be similar.



Also, if you are not going for the concourse restoration, upgrading the linkage is well worth it. OpenTracker also sells a full roller clutch linkage or you can build your own.

Here is my linkage set up:

You asked about the spring which attaches to the firewall... there is an extra hole at the top of the Z bar which the spring connects to. There is a similar hole at the bottom for a secondary spring which attaches to the transmission fork.

I just finished my swap to a Toploader from a C4. Here's a pix of my set up for my 66. A little different in appearance but basically the same. I would strongly suggest doing away with the stock pot metal hats and nylon bushings in the pedal hanger and go for roller bearings like either Scott Drake or mustangsteve.com did for me. I made my own linkage with rod ends too. I'm showing the stock linkage in comparison



Here's the pedal hanger



Oh, one last thing. The Toploader's speedo cable goes in the passenger side of the tailhousing so naturally the cable is longer. In addition the cable goes through the fire wall in a different location. It goes through the trans tunnel just to the right of the gas pedal and about even with the top of the pedal and about 1.5" from the firewall. I took a picture when I did my swap but can't seem to locate it. The hole is 7/8" in diameter. I used a Greenlee electrical chassis punch meant for 1/2" electrical fittings. You can just as well use a Unibit. I bought a rubber grommet from the hardware store to protect the cable from chaffing on the metal. I put a slit in it as well other wise you won't get the speedo cable through.
