my clutch is toast something went south inside...I'm assuming clutch fork broke...it's an 87 getrag...I only have the shop space for one day to work on it so want to cover all my bases and have all the parts on hand to get it in and out...as I won't know whats in there till I get it apart were both designs of the fork used in 87?

Clutch forks are tough, and expensive. Unless you have solid proof, chances are your throwout bearing is messed up and the clutch fork is fine.

broken clutch forks aren't that uncommon are they? for the price of a used fork I would rather have one on hand if needed..the cars got to go back together same day...one way or another

OK, but I don't think anyone can tell you which of 2 forks you have until you open up the clutch.

I don't know if there is any way for sure to know what you have in yours. I don't even know if the two types will interchange, they may. I think if you have a little wire welder and a big hammer you can probably fix anyting you may find with a TO bearing fork. It would take a fairly big event to distroy it. Larry

Easy there, Sam....nobody is calling you stupid. Perhaps a more direct answer would be that there are no records defining when Pontiac used a particular clutch fork. Because all the components that come into play around the clutch fork are the same, there is a high probability that the forks are interchangeable, but that is just a guess, and it's clear you are asking for something more precise.

I am smart enough to know the two aren't interchangeable....

Just because they look different does not mean they won't interchange with each other. Larry

from the Fiero Store... may help others and from everything I could find on the forum the two are not interchangeable

2nd design was used in 88 only.

Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

Thank you,

That's interesting! They list both forks for 88, so apparently there was a running change. I wonder if there are other differences in the 'second design' transmission.

If it says 88 only it does not mean that the first model was not used in 88 also. Larry
