Default Re: Fairmont U/S Build AKA Craigslist Racer

Well I didn't make ABQ to test. I tested on a remote backroad 2 weeks ago and smoked the clutch due to my inexperience and other issues. The car runs well, stops and steers like it should, transmission shifts perfect. Just some driver/builder problems. Shipped the clutch back to Robb, he did a quick turn around on it and is on the way back to me.
As per Sean Marconette (thanks buddy) and Robb I installed a later Fox Mustang pedal assembly, Steeda clutch quadrant, firewall cable adjuster and cable. Also added a 1/4 spacer between the bellhousing and block. All of this should give me plenty of clearance between the t/o and pressure plate fingers.
We will try again next weekend if all goes well.

Glad to help in any way Kelly!!

All I can say is your car looks great and something for you to be very proud of! If you can get the air gap where it needs to be and the clearance on the TOB to the levers you will have it made.
