General Motors Part Number 401080 Clutch Pedal Push Rod
Original vs Reproduction
Side by Side
Some reproductions that are available have the
correct length and bends, but the z-bar end is too
short to be used with the original GM part number
401077 z bar.
The lower rod is the original in these pictures.
the distance from the flat to the clip hole is the
same on the reproduction I carry.
The bend is slightly different but the pin is the
0.854 ROD, Clutch Pedal Push Rod
68-69 F85 (Olds Parts Books)
68-72 Buick A (C.T.) exc. 400-455 engine (Buick Parts Book)
Most parts that I describe and picture have identification on or with them, others I can identify from other sources and deduction (educated guess).
Factory correct applications are your responsibility. GM made part and part # changes with no rhyme but a reason (no production interruptions at any cost).
Applications are for replacement parts that were available at the time of parts book printing, and when possible model specific assembly manuals.
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!
