#9787069 64-72 Buick, Olds, Pontiac
General Motors Part # 9787069 Clutch Release Fork
The "069" was the OEM Fork for most, but not
all, Buick, Oldsmobile and Pontiac 4-speeds. One
notable exception is the 71-72 Buicks with 455
Engines and Stage 1 packages.
Looking toward engine
This fork has a unique throwout bearing and pivot
stud retaining spring, and has "ears" on the push
rod end, that is used for Oldsmobile return spring
Looking toward rear
The "096" fork has a straight centerline from the
bearing retainer through the pivot stud pocket to
the lower push rod pocket. Approximate overall
length tip to tip is 10 3/4".
Even though this bearing yoke is straight it isn't
flat. It has a 1" curve at its highest point.
The bearing retention spring has a crease between
the attachment rivet and the pivot stud "ears".
These "ears" are also much shorter then they are
on the standard Chevy spring.
They did a nice job on the retainer spring.

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 and part numbers 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!
