Thanks for the encouragement!



I found another photo of the transmission jack as requested and here is a better shot of the rear quarter. One more polish and the rear quarters should be done.



I finally got the hydraulic clutch problem figured out. The Modern Driveline clutch pedal linkage will ONLY work on a 1967 Mustang pedal. I did not realize it, but I had a 1968 clutch pedal on. Here is a photo of the difference, 67 is the lower pedal and 68 is the upper, more straight pedal.

The clutch pedal is normally several inches up closer to the driver than the brake pedal.

After I switched the pedals out, it all worked great.

THE CAR MOVED THE FIRST TIME ON ITS OWN AND STOPPED SINCE THE 70's!!!

How cool is it when you can see the depth in the paint? It does not matter how hard you (read my photographic skills) try, you generally can't convey the depth of the paint via a pic.

The trans jack is pretty heavy duty but a good design- especially if you have a shed the size of a small Oz town ;-)

Thanks!

I am still using my friend's shop until my new building is done. Since we moved back to Kansas I haven't had a place of my own to work in.

Should be moving into the new shop in a month or two. I may have to get a 2 post lift - I see used ones for sale on craigslist all the time.

UPDATE APRIL 2016

So I got the EPAS Steering installed, broke down the A/C boxes and put them back together.
I used Classic Auto Air's new evaporator and condenser with more rows to improve efficiency. The photos of the A/C boxes coming apart, cleaning, fiberglass repair, and reassembly. I ended up going with a couple of used vacuum motors I had from other used boxes from my storage stash because on the new ones the rubber and didn't work as smoothly.

I want to complete the A/C assembly and test it prior to putting the fenders and hood on.

Should be getting the headliner and glass in soon. I had to remake one of the window track plastic guides - took some Lexan plastic, heated it with a torch and bent/ground it to shape.








I had the door glass tracts silver cad plated with gold sealant because it won't be seen and it is the most corrosion resistant plating. Original was silver cad only.


Here is a photo of my friend's Vintage Ford Service Tools. They come in handy for working on vintage automobiles.

Hey Ryan, nice work on the A/C. Have you told us about that assisted steering set-up in that top shot?
Cheers

Jacko,

I was in a big hurry as I had a couple days to run down there, install and come back home to work/wrangle the kiddos. My wife is my business partner/boss 😘

SO I did not hook it up to electrical yet. It is an EPAS system that modern cars use. There is a dial on it to make the steering totally manual to effortless power steering. It did eliminate the rag joint and without electricity it is just manual steering, but it felt tight.

I am on Army duty the next several weeks so I plan on running back down in June to install the A/C, get it running and probably get the head liner and glass in.

After that with help from my friend (with the shop) we will get the hood/fenders on and then I will feel good about getting her back up to my place.

Where I live now, I really don't know anyone and for the sake of marital bliss it is best if I don't ask the wife to help get painted fenders, deck lid and hood on the car. Γ°ΕΈΛœΕ“

I should have the shop done by then too! That is another marital bliss moment and another set of stories for another day!Γ°ΕΈΛœβ‚¬ Poke

Ah yes, the old "marital bliss". Something that most of us have to contend with & it can be a rocky road if you do not Read the Manual

Hey Ryan, my missus is a tyrant - don't tell her that though- so you are not alone there my son.

Where are you commuting between and what is the business you are establishing? That steering looks interesting. Would be interested to learn more about it when you have time.
Cheers
Ian

The car is 2.5 hour drive from me near my parents. It is in a friend's shop who does a lot of paint work for the shop I used to work at 25 years ago. To do the engine part I trailered the car to down the road 1/2 mile to another friend who owns the local Ford Dealership and is my Dad's age. He has helped me install the drive train components.

He also has a 67 Mustang hardtop he is putting a Boss 302 engine into from a wrecked car he salvaged in the 70's.

My wife is very tolerant overall, but we work together every day and run a business with 20 employees. With the twin boys in grade school that puts a lot on our plate.

With me gone for Army Reserves duty it puts a lot on her for these two weeks. I may get out and try to focus my efforts more at home.

My business is a Veterinary Clinic - my wife and I are veterinarians. We bought a clinic 2 years ago and it has been a lot of work. We have almost 25,000 active clients that bring in animals from the Kansas City area up north of us and a lot of rural from the south. We are open 6 days a week and also do the book work, facility maintenance, etc to keep it all running.

We don't plan on moving again so I did go a little overboard on the workshop, which my wife has been mostly tolerant of, except a few occasions to reign me in. Γ°ΕΈΛœβ‚¬

Jacko,
Ol mate down the road fitted a similar system to his pony...came from a Nissan X-trail, haven't driven it but he raves about it. In fact he has replaced his 351 for a more efficient performance motor....gives him 590 on the dyno. What was interesting was the external oil and cooling lines fitted to allow the engine to perform more efficiently.
If you want, when I'm over at his farm, I'll get you some pics.
Cheers,
Ash


Cheers.

I have looked a little into it and really I see mounting the unit is a difficult exercise. Ones I have seen often have a slim strip of metal holding on one side - to me that is not good enough in my view. So I am always firstly interested in the bracketing used to mount the unit under the dash.


I will someday think of something clever to say.
