#3860005 65-70 Chevy Passenger Car
General Motors Part # 3860005 Clutch Release Fork
The "005" Clutch Release Fork was used on
1965,1966,1967,1968,1969, and 1970 full size
(Passenger car) Chevrolets.
This fork was used on Chevy Caprice, Impala,Belair
and Biscayne manual shift cars. It measures 10 3/8"
from release bearing end to center of push rod pocket.
One of the unique features is it being flat with no
arc or offset between the pivot points.
There is a hole for return spring on upper rail.
In this view you see the unique shape of this lever.
It also has the lower push rod pocket offset upward
(toward the floor boards).
The bearing retainer spring is unique to this lever.
There are tabs that wrap around the end of the fork,
to limit movement.
Note: Most used forks have one or both of these tabs missing
Pictures and descritions are from a new old stock
part I have.

Factory correct applications are your responsibility. GM made part and part # changes with no rhyme but a reason (no production interruptions at any cost).
Application charts are for replacement parts that were available at the time of parts book printing.
My observations come from the parts I have in my collection or other reliable sources your parts may differ.
If Factory correctness is your goal, do more research, join car clubs,
forums and buy an assembly manual if one is available for your Project Car (you wont be sorry).
This is a fun and interesting part of the hobby!
