    I took the car to my son’s godfather’s
    Shop -
    He runs a custom exhaust shop and does repairs there as well.
    He built up the little nub until he could mig a nut on ... with some gentle love
    He came out nice and clean.

    My Z bar broke while driving last year, thankfully only around the corner from home. I used a cutoff wheel attached to a cordless drill to slot the broken shaft to be able to thread it out of the block. Ingenuity + lack of tools in the home garage.

    I ordered from Camaro Central but will surely keep this Mario fella in mind for future needs.

    I’m in Ajax, would be cool to see some of these other local cars.

    I bought a clutch linkage kit from ss396.com, the kit contained everything but the clutch return spring tab for the frame, and a new clutch fork. I used a Lakewood Bell Housing, so I bought their clutch fork. As another gentleman indicated, the wear evident on the clutch fork would cause binding that might very well keep the pedal from returning, I would replace the fork and the adjustable linkage.

    Those are normal parts that wear out eventually .Remember these cars weren't made to last this long. And there are reproductions kits out there .I even up graded mine with Heim joints to make easier to shift. I have seen some people go to a hydraulic clutch ..

    I just went with a hydraulic clutch. Took some work to install, but works amazing. Quiet, solid, very linear feel. I do like the Z-bar setup with heim joints though.
