The rod that goes from the clutch pedal, through the firewall and to the first part of the linkage... it has a slight bend in it..... is this bend supposed to be on the pedal end or the linkage end ??

The manual I have shows the rod entering the pedal from the pass side and the linkage from the drivers side, but I cant tell which end the slight bend is supposed to be on.

69 Camaro, originally had a Saginaw 3 speed floor shift.

I have a 69 but it's apart so of no help.
I would put the rod in so the bend is down. I think it was put in because the 67 and 68 have the clutch rod hole in the pedal at a lower point on the pedal.
Camaro owners complained of stiff clutch so factory data says they changed the pedal ratio, (drilled the hole higher up).
The bend was added to the rod to help keep the rod centered in the firewall boot.

When I installed my clutch linkage from an Auto Trans conversion I played around with the same thing, and landed up putting the bend to the pedal side, it lined up in the rod in the middle of the hole, through the whole stroke of the pedal.
