z bar/ clutch return spring ????

Hey guys,

I'm working on converting my auto 66 gto to a 4 speed and have a couple questions here.

I got what I thought and appeared to be a used z bar... however it doesn't have a hole for the clutch return spring... does anyone know how high up the hole for this needs to be drilled on the z bar? and I also cant see anywhere on the frame or firewall where the other end of the spring would attach to. do I need to drill out a location for this as well??? If anyone has pictures or can help with this as well that would be much appreciated.

God, Country, Cars

This is off my '66 OHC but would apply to GTO as well.
The SMALL Spring from Fork to Z is set at aprox 1.5" above rod pivot point on Z.
The LARGE Spring From Z to Floor Brace (Not Frame)is set from factory in a hole aprox 2" above Body Bushing.
I hope this makes sense,Helps.
Cheers.
