    Default '92 2.3L N/A Manual Clutch fork research

    Greetings y'all!
    It's been a while since I've been around, life ya know.
    The release bearing went out on the daughter's '92 and chewed up the ends of the clutch fork as well as the bearing retaining clip/spring.
    The engineering part number E6ZR-7515-BA.
    It turns out that this clutch fork is made of un-obtain-ium.
    Besides pick-n-pulls, do y'all happen to have suggestions for sourcing this part or maybe even one to sell?
    Any help from the community is always greatly appreciated!

    Default maybe found something

    Been years. No change.
    Plenty of numbers, no consistent cross reference from engineering number on part to pn on box.
    Nor any descriptions defining detailed differences between p/n, only pictures.
    Dealer may help sort it out if they can go back that far.
    Most all listings are for V8. Some for V6. Nothing for 2.3. What bs. That's 'dropping the ball'.
    Went thru the same thing on my 79 2.3. Have been using the V8 version for 150K since year 2000.
    Mine is stamped D9BC-7515-BA with a part number D9ZZ-7515C. Bought at Ford dealer.

    The first 4 characters of the fork lever stamp sometimes match the one on the bellhousing.

    AA suffix. E6ZZ Prefix

    Make sure to grease the pivot ball or else it rusts and may snap one of the lever's spring retaining clips.

    Thanks for the help. The only correct one that I've found has been on Ebay and by searching using the engineering number. It may be N.O.S. but the seller isn't afraid to ask a king's ransom for it!

    Also, I've finally bought a three piece rear spoiler, shipped at an acceptable price. Still a lot more than what you guys usually pay for it : http://www.ebay.com/itm/401203685140#shpCntId

    And since I didn't like the chrome trim around the side windows, but didn't want to ruin them by painting them (they're in very good condition), I've tried wrapping them with matte black vinyl wrap. I'm really happy with the result, so I'll do all of them this way. It takes a bit of time but it looks really clean and it's removable.
    I'll keep the drip rail and upper door trim "chrome", the rear louvered trim and everything around the windows will be black. I think it makes the car less "bulky". There's on thing I really don't like about the early Fox is how strong the separation between the door and rear quarter windows is, they should have made them look like one piece and hide the pillars better IMO.

    Still have the box.
    In it i found an old clutch fork D9BC-7515-BA. Same as pictured.
    Been a while.
    Assume i installed the new one and put the old in the box for times like this.
    The bell is a the one for a RAD trans that came with the 79 Turbo 2.3 engine.
    Since then, T5 was installed 10+ years ago, no changes to any parts in the bell.

    From what i gather, this D9ZZ-7515-C fork is the same as used with the 5.0.
    I cannot check the number stamp (is in car). Assume it was a match.
    Been searching for pics of the early 80's V8 fork stamping number.
    Pretty sure i measured and compared both before install.
    All i know is its been in there for 100,000+ miles no issues.

    another number have to check more into is one with a E6ZZ-7515-A stamping number.





    found on sites:
    D9BC-7515-BA known to fit D9ZC-6394-EA, E0ZR-6392-AA bell housings
    1979-81? 84? Ford Mustang GT V8 Factory Original Clutch Fork Part # D9ZC-7515-BA
    That stamp is usually an engineering number or one for the stamping before the spring parts were added.
    another:

    Had to edit my post
    Removed posted link for a F6ZR, not a E6ZR
    E and F look the same sometimes if not aware.

    Update:
    About a year ago I sold the donor parts car for scrap. Lo and behold, I found it sitting in the same scrap yard with the clutch fork I needed still attached to the input shaft. $10 and 3 hours later, the '92 and I were headed down the road. Thanks again for all of your help!
