Remove the rods from the arms and loosen the ball stud nut on the outside of the frame bracket. Then you can lift it off of the frame bracket and slide it off the block ball.

Remove the rod between the Z -bar and your clutch fork.Remove the spring from the firewall to upper clutch rod. Loosen the nuts at the end of your clutch rod keeping in mind not to lose the settings.Then on the opposite end from the block the Z-bar is held in place with a nut against the bracket that is welded on the frame.The Z-bar sits on a ball thats threaded into the block so once you remove the nut on the outside end of the Z-bar it will pull up.It's all covered in the asembly manual.

On the outside mount the nut is held in place from losening by a special washer. It is necessary and available from Long Island Corvette part #28-08E $3.50.

If the washer is original it will have two tangs that are peened over so the nut doesn't loosen. You'll need to pry them open to loosen the nut so you can slide the Z bar up and out of the slot in the frame bracket.
