Having good equipment is a big plus and then --- practice --- practice --- practice. ----- More than likely the only difference between you guys and me is that I have made bigger piles of scrap metal than you have. Its not uncommon for me to build a part more than once if I am not satisfied with it.

Thanks
Steve

Mounting engine and transmission.







TCI 1/4" Adapter mid plate for a 385 series Ford to chevy. They have a tendency to flex in the starter area. At the time I didn't know 1/2" plates were available and if you look close in the starter area there is a 1/4" doubler plate. If this doesn't work the thicker plate well be installed.







Rear trans mount.







Engine limiter



Limiter mounted just above top frame rail ---- one on each side.

Thanks ---- D --- The guy I got the Fairlaine from had a 71 Mustang.
Checking out your build looks like you waded into the deep end of the pool too.

Adjustable Strut jig.



Adjustable for track width and ride height it holds the spindle to zero camber zero toe and caster set to any angle. It also holds the spindles straight for a centered steering wheel when the rack and pinion --- column and steering wheel are installed.



Upper Strut Mounts



Rack and pinion.



Quick release wheel indicator ---- Notice the hole in center of the horn button area.



When the wheel is locked in place a button fills the hole and is flush across the center.

The idea here was to come up with an adjustable pedal assemble. At first the master cylinder was going to be mounted straight forward with an adjustable push rod but there wasn't enough room to mount the master cylinder inside the firewall. Mounting outside the firewall or under the floor would compromise header room and I wanted to stay away from that if I could. So the only thing I could think of was to put the master cylinder 90 degrees to the pedal stroke with a bell crank.


The short pedal on the left is a foot rest and it protects the remote fill master cylinder.



With a Morris cable throttle the assemble is very easy to adjust. Note the series of holes in the mounting bracket that welds to the frame.







The key to this deal is the bell crank with proper angles and ratios.



Mounted in the car and 2 AN-3 bulkhead fittings coming through floor with one braided line going to the master cylinder just ahead of the throttle.

That is slick! Are the angles and throw on the belcrank a math problem or trial and error? Or both.

The math is not that difficult. You just need to remember to add the pedal ratio with the bell crank ratio. If the bell crank arms are the same length from the pivot point the ratio is 1 to 1 and adds nothing to the pedal ratio but if the arms are different length that ratio needs to be considered. This may look like the coolest thing in the world but when it is all together and checked with a pressure gauge at the calipers. If the pressures are not right and can't be fixed. We just have an other addition to the scrap pile. Don't think there will be a problem but stuff like this needs to be checked and confirmed. ---- Q

Thanks gasser.
Gydyup -- When I got to the shop I looked all over to try and find the patterns made out of poster board. Couldn't locate them so no pics. Every thing was laid out with paper doll cut outs and a scribe was used as a pivot point to check out travels and arcs. This was the trial and error part and there was adjustments. When satisfied with the lay out it was then transferred to 4130 tube and plate.--- Q
