In any case, the Z-series calipers weren't particularly robust even for back then. The "cheap sidepull" of choice was Dia-Compe.
Here's a couple pictures of your beastie, but none that show the arm arrangement:
IIRC, there should be a plastic washer in between the two caliper arms. Is it there?
If you really get stuck, I may have a spare Z-series caliper in my bin o' parts. I could send it to you if it's the same reach.
(Old bike mechanics never die. They just disappear under their piles of parts.)
