1969-1970 Shelby GT350/500 / 1969 GT350 Z bar clutch linkage adjustments
« on: August 09, 2020, 05:50:33 PM »
Im not sure if my Z bar is bent.   Does anyone know if someone makes a stronger Z bar or a way to reinforce one so it doesnít bend?  I have to almost push the pedal through the floor to get the clutch to engage so I can shift into gear. I used the procedure in the shop manual but my pedal always has to be pushed all the way to the floor to shift.  Is there a way to adjust the lower rod to make it disengage closer to the top of the pedal travel and still have enough free play?  Also I installed a Center force clutch and pressure plate and throw out bearing and cannot get the pedal to come all the way up without assistance. I had to put a heavier spring to the Z bar from the firewall in order to get the pedal to come full up.    Thanks in advance for any help you can give

Thank you for the information

  Iím no expert so educate me.  How about posting some references,articles,videos etc... so that I may get a better understanding


It seems what is called a proportioning valve might do both proportioning and act as a residual valve.   Check out this video  yes I know heís talking about mopars but he does Ford brake parts too

Found this distribution block and proportioning valve (residual valve) all in one. From NPD  their part number is 2B091-20AA says it fits 1964-1971 FAIRLANE FAIRLANE, TORINO, 70 1/2 FALCON.

Well if your going to be like that. why does the 1969 shop manual call it a proportioning valve?  maybe on the earlier years they used a residual valve but clearly in 1969 they used a proportioning valve. See photoís taken of 1969 shop manual for Cougar and Mustang.

Your going to need a proportioning valve also to balance the front and rear.  Discs use a different amount of fluid compare to drum brakes.  You can try Macís for a stock parts or you can use an adjustable proportion valve from an after market brake supplier like Bear brakes


Correct me if Iím wrong  but that looks to be a drum brake distribution block (drum brakes at all four wheels).  Do you have a proportioning valve installed for the rear brakes?  These pictures are for a 1969 Mustang Sorry about the pictures can never get them to come out right

 Sorry but I donít know what a Ted bonding agent is or what FRP stands for.  Is there a place to purchase these materials?  Or what else can be used to secure the screens

Thank you for the information Bob who ever installed my front screens used silicone.  What material was used to glue in the back screens?

Jeff,  thank you for the pictures.  My car was built January 6 1969  I donít know when it was converted to a Shelby GT350.  Iím guessing from the pictures that the rear screens are glue only and the fronts are glued and have the two fasteners.  The screens on my car look like the pictures but are loose (one forward and one of the rears has half the glue missing) and need to be secured.  Is there any special tricks to installing them? It looks pretty straight forward. Thanks again for your help.
Thank you    Dan
