thanks for the coments and for liking my thread
I have worked with rearend
I have her spot weld the new spring hoders on the rearaxle
Put it in the shoebox and test if it fitts
I have now weld the holders the will lower the shoebox 1"
I have put on the new u-bolt for test and the restored bottom brackets
your build is awesome, i love how your doing the work.
thanks for the coment
I have a fight with drive shaft
I have some problems with the spinces when i put it toghter but now is it up
I put tempory in the shoebox with the volvo u-joint that not fit the ford 8" rear end
I have a power brake kit from jamco suspension that should fit a shoebox
it look like that the brake pedal shall be mounted outside the original master cylinder
I have not a assembly instruction to it or i not have fond it
Her's the old master cylinder removed
I think mayby to modyfi the kit so i not need put the old master cylinder inside the new pedal holder.
If i do that will i move the new master cylder assy. closer to the frame
I can get som problems with the pushrod that it hit the gearbox member
If i move it there will be more room for the headers/exhaust system
I'd contact Jamco to see if they can help you out with the missing assembly instructions . Seeing as you're in Sweden , an e-mail might be your best/only choice .
**EDIT** you could also give HOTTWHEELZ a PM right here on the HAMB .
I PM HOTWHEELZ
Hey Stefan,check out my build thread.I did some modification for the Jamco's mastercylinder bracket,its on the first page.I hope there's some help for you about them.
The brake pedal will be too center,so there wont be enough room for the gas pedal without any modifications..
I took a look on your tread. Thanks
I think to somthing like you. I have to melt it little before i start to do the modifactions
this is why i come on here, if some one has a problem most of guys on are more then willing to help or point you in the right direction.
AA++ for the hamb
good luck Stefan
Thanks for the coments
and thanks Jamco (HOTtWHEELZ) for the assembly instrucktions
Awesome that he got 'em for you ASAP !! I figured he could hook you up .
I must modify the brake pedal from jamco becase it not shall have inferace with my headers build
I have cut of the boss on the backide of the holder so i can move it closer to frame
and i cut the pedal holder and rotate it 180 degrees so it is in same deriction as the original pedal
Her's a comper to the original pedal assy.
Quoting post #22 back in Oct 2009: Newcommer to this forum - in fact my first post, I must comment this whole build is taking place in a garage on my farm. The cars are mine (and my two sons) and on "the other side of the doors" are a full stable with horses and sheep .
The Villager 9-seater as of the summer of 2011
My son David's slammed -67 VW Type 3 Fastback
My son Andreas' ongoing project slammed -57 VW Oval
(Sorry for the Off-Topic...)
Quoting post #363 from Feb 2010: Very nice wheel - first time I actually see this !
Have just read the whole thread !
Really, really, really great stuff - keep up the pace (I need the garage space, ha ha ha ) !
Welcome to the HAMB Mats! Nice Edsel.
Thanks for all comets
and Mats welcome
I have worked with Jamco kit.
I cut of the screw bracket on the master cylder holder.
Now will came nearer the frame and so i can get more road clearance
I have weld it up in the frame
I put the parts up for a test
the pedal is now in orignal place after moving the kit nearer the frame
the master cylinder and the power brake unit is now put in near the frame and close to the floor
I cut a hole in the foor for inspection and matance of the master cylinder
i have to do somthing with this hole so it look better and make a lid to it
Good job , Stefan . Looks good .
I'll be doing something similar in the near future with a custom dual master setup . We did it already in (HAMB'er) Legend544's shoebox , so I have a perfect model to copy for mine ! I have to gather up the disc brake stuff yet - till then , it's drum brakes for me ...
Figured I'd add a couple pics of what we came up with . It mounts in front of the crossmember just as original and fits to the original pedal , eliminating the long rod (it's non-booster , so it fits perfectly) . Pics are from mock-up stage , BTW - it's all plumbed now and works great .
Go for it Stefan ! Visiting your shop soon,expect to see some progress !! Kör på !
Nice setup for the non power master cylinder
You can come and take a new look on the shoebox
it had happen some since your last visit in my shop
Thanks - it fits pretty nicely & works well .
I wish I was closer , so I could visit your shop too !
I promice that should do something with hole in the floor
I have made a frame that i think to weld in
And now is only grinding left
And after some grinding
With the lid on
Getting through it.. nice job on the build.
Thanks for the coment
I cut a out some more of the floor
there was some rust holes under the feet pan.
and i repace the sheet metal under the pan
Looking good Mr. T !
I was looking for this tool the other day:
Any chance you know where it is? (Link to larger image: vwnettet.dk)
Or could you possibly make a copy of this for removing door sprints?
