    Thanks guys!
    It's really wasn't difficult, just time consuming...

    Drewfus, the engine is a similar green already,
    and I had that paint stashed away..I'm a spray-can junkie!
    The camera makes it look turquoise its not as bad as the pix...

    Alpine Green. I used to buy it by the quart in Centari. Gives it an industrial look.

    Great job. wait. Fantastic job.
    .015 across the face woulda been OK. Even better now that it's fixed.

    Completely amazing work! Why the clutch arm though, instead of adapting a GM one to fit? Just wondering...........


    Got my Tech week vote!
     
  12. Wow, I'm blown away.

    First thanks for the vote(s)!

    Second, cause i didn't have a GM one!
    I had the original caddy one but I misplaced it,
    but it also didn't fit the muncie/saginaw throwout bearing anyway.

    This is a version available online that I thought to copy,
    uses a heim joint in that pivot slot.
    I like the leverage adjustability, but too hi-tech for this caveman!

    You had my vote.........and you are doing the building yourself......and fabbing everything with minimal tools......Cool......and I sorta' listen to your "music" while traveling on Sirius radio.
