No pic update:

Today I spent about 5 hours going through my lists and ordering misc parts needed to finish the frame.

Clutch kit
all brake lines
bulk 2.5" exhaust tubing
Super 44 mufflers
Steering shaft linkage
engine odds & ends

Getting closer....

What problems did you run into? I'm worried about several things - most of all, trusting a vehicle that will have been mostly hand-built be me.

Fack.

Rockauto fed my delusions of grandeur and I bought the wrong gdarned clutch kit - and the part they sent was used.

So after pulling the trans and bellhousing to install it, I had to put it back together so I had reference for routing the exhaust.

NO no no the truck looks awesome, I'm sure it will work good, I was mainly talking about the hydraulic clutch setup you are gonna run. I have that exact same slave and a wilwood master cylinder idk what angle I had wrong But the push rod into the master cylinder got bent along with the rod on the slave.


I had a Saginaw 4 speed to I wanted to run in my camaro and I made a sweet looking bracket similar to the one you have- I probably ran into trouble when that bracket hit the body and I had to change it to a less than ideal angle on it. I hope you can get it to work.

I had to run the stock mechanical clutch that pushed instead of pulled

I actually still have both of them.


I cant remember exactly how it all went down, I stored it in my great ideas that I couldnt make work- maybe when I'm a little smarter...
