    Looking through the 1969 Skylark assembly manual....mine for my 400/new 455 looks like the one shown for a 350? Anyone know what this guys talking about? Thanks

    The big block clutch fork has a clevis pin, the small block has a conventional pocket on the end for the adjuster rod

    Wow. Don't know exactly what to think but ok. What years would be a correct fit? Aftermarket? Cost?

    A small block fork will work just fine, it just wont be "correct". You might lose some points at s show. Original big block forks are hens teeth. If you can convince someone to sell you one, its big bucks. They used them from 68-72. A reproduction is made by a guy named Dave Kleiner.

    Would one trade an original for an original points cover? Is the fork rarer than the 4 speed 90 deg transmission cable adapter?

    You can put an ad up in the parts wanted section. Someone might step forward

    You should specify which 90 degree adapter. They were different depending on the rear gear ratio. For example, I recall a car with a 3.64 rear gear ratio used a 0.785 Stewart Warner, yellow code/dot - Part number 396338, adapter.

    That's the one. I have half it it. The other half is long gone.

    If you are not concerns about originality,you can use a more common fork,and a different fork rod to connect to the z-bar. If it is a concours car,then you are looking for an odd piece.
