Is the clutch fork for a 67 350 anything special or is it a standard 289 MT piece?

Thanks

Don't know for sure if Ford catalog is right on this, but it lists C7ZZ7515D for '67 289 special and 390 12" long.The "lopo" fork is C5OZ7515B 9 1/4" long.

Does anyone have a known original to compare to  standard 289?  Side by side pictures should solve the mystery?

Would the answer be in the shape of the ' Z' bar of the Lopo vs the HIPO.

Different geometry would be a reason for a change of fork. With that said the 67/68 hipo z bar and a regular fork seem to be in a straight line which is the same relationship that a regular fork and a standard 289 equalizer bar have. I am not sure if I am missing something or not.I haven't studied this before. Do others have insight that they would like to share?

Hope it's not too late to continue this thread. Does the 67 Hipo clutch fork have any part or engineering numbers stamped into it, and if so what would they be. Have seen pics of 390 forks with C8 numbers. Thanks. Brian
