Hi to Shelby fans !  my first post .   how a clutch fork ( with wire ) is attached to the bellhousing pivot ??  easy to figure out the one with the clip but the wire ... ??   can someone post pics or explain how it works please ?     second question is for the correctness of my NOS oil dipstick tube . i do have the C7OZ-6754-A . it looks like the end entering the block is not perfectly rounded ( crimped ) causing problem to install . is that normal   ??  thanks for your help .

Hello onelimegold, I just installed my new dip stick tube and had the same issue. I filed the shinny spots on the tube (tight area) a little at a time until the tube pushed into the block with some resistance. Cleaning the tube with brake clean each time to remove any metal filings. Before final installation put a small amount of sealer on the tube. Good luck, take your time.

I haven't installed my clutch fork onto the bellhousing yet, but the wire spring has a long and short end. The long end goes to the top side of the fork. To install the wire spring put the long end into the fork first from the inside then push the short end thru the hole on the other inside ( both ends will protrude out of the fork. If the short end won't go thru the hole file it a little. Rick
