    Bob switched to e-brake, which yes is on the outside, with all it's clunky true pedal, felt pad,spring pushing, lock lever, shaft through worn bracket, rusty cotter pin holding, rod over frame, under body, rubber anti rattler, glory.

  6. So you can build a car from scratch but to cut up a bicycle is a mystery? o_O:D

    pants are pulled up........now wipe.
     
  10. Not yet.
    Still lots of stuff to do, make sure it all fits & works. Then take back a apart weld it all up paint it. Then final assembly..

    You know ,,,everything usually done before its painted.

  12. After further replies since this morning I see better where your worries lie. How important is it that both levers be removable? Would a section of floor that can be removed (access panel) so pedal can be removed if feasible so that only one end of your shaft is splined so that the DD becomes non existent?
     
  13. My measuring with body off frame says it's imperative. But I'll know better tomorrow when I can get it all together and physically try it.

  14. Then again. The Big 3 gives little care to serviceability. But really how often does this need servicing once done? So as not to cut the floor why not weld the lever for the master cly to the shaft (and brake lever removable)? Providing trans isn't going to be an elephant in the room? But he is removable!
     
  15. Sorry for being so talkative last night. You see I've been sipping on your Tequila since Tuesday that you ask me to hold and it really got to me. :confused:

    IMG_2253.JPG IMG_2254.JPG Yes, the exhaust does hang down pretty low. Under the frame rails, under the booster. 52 Chevy truck built by me. Engine sort of in the right place. Normal headers connected to engine. Stock brake pedal on stock bracket. Very small hump in floor to clear th350.
    Oh, 2in drop spindles and blocks in the rear. It's pretty low.
     
  17. That's some funny shit right there,
    I dint care who you are !!

  18. Thanks for the pics
    Looks like a stocker crossmember and parts.
    I wish I knew how to red line pics and ask you for a few measurements.

    Like what's the distance from control arm pivot to control arm pivot.
    And what's the ball joint spread on the spindle.
    Where's the engine's oil pan rail in relation to the frame rail- above, below, even & how much.

    Don't mind measuring what I can, but, be warned when I did this my knowledge level was about a 3 on a scale of 1 to 10.
    It does stop, go, and look pretty though.

    Nice work. Did you do a panhard bar on the rear, I didn't see one.

    On the same side from upper to lower?
     
  24. Yep same side upper to lower,
    but lemme know if that's the forward side or rear side.
    Rear should be shorter because of the anti-dive geometry

    And ball joint spread spindle height

    Oil pan rail 3 in. below top of frame rail measured at back of block
    Control arm pivots 10 7/8 rear side upper to lower
    Ball joint spread 9 1/2 " ( that one is kinda rough, where is center of ballpoint?) measured from the plate that holds the boot on. All that stuff is stock. No kit used. Good luck but I know you don't need it!

    drag a photo to your desk top and click on it to enlarge it. then click on the toolbox icon. [blue] it will open up another tool bar. click on the squiggly pencil icon [blue] then start drawing. shift/command/C will copy whatever shape you make, then you can move the duplicate like i did for the other eyeglass lens.

  30. It's all IPad.
    Momma has the computer and I'm not going to touch it until she finishes up her masters degree. and I'm serious I will not touch it, move it, close it. Hell I won't even look at it.
    Maybe once in a while I'll read over her shoulder but my hands are in my pockets.
