I've never seen this before. It's a bracket, with like a pulley (sort of) that bolts to the upper side of the frame just behind the steering gear box. This is on my son's '65 coupe. It was originally a manual tranny (juding from the clutch pedal still in it) and a C code. Was it something for the clutch?

I believe that's where the pivot point is for the Z bar. I couldn't get the url to work. If you go to canadianmustang.com and search for Z Bar you will find the parts I describe to verify this.

Yes, it was. That is the frame mounted equalizer bracket. What looks like a pulley is the nylon bushing. That and a corresponding bushing on the engine block is what the clutch release equalizer pivoted on.

OH, John....

It's an equalizer bar pivot bracket....

hehehe

There should be another one sticking out of the block right across from it unless they threw it away...

Hang on to it if you remove it...never know when a Tremac is in your future...*G*

Not only is there not a matching one on the block, THERE'S NO BLOCK! *LOL*. This is another basket case that my son and I are building. It came with no drivetrain at all.

We removed the bracket, but I guess I'll store it away with the other millions of little parts 'I'll never use again' *LOL*. Having never had a manuall tranny Mustang before, it was something I'd never seen before.
