65 B Body 4 speed conversion post.


Looks great Mark. Interesting issue with the linkage though, but you seemed to solve that quite handily!

Love the correct bare-bones pedal pads.

Pedals in and adjusted. Just a tiny bit of play off the bump stop on the clutch pedal, and the same with the brake. Clutch pedal sits higher just as they intended.

 


 Over the years that I had my factory 4 speed 66 Grande Parisienne many guys told me it wasn't a factory 4 speed because the pedals didn't line up correctly!

How much play should there be off the bump stop? I guess the really important thing is to keep the throwout just off the clutch when running, or suffer a premature bearing failure?

 Yes, exactly. 

I was taught growing up that there should be around an inch of freeplay on the pedal. Others may have different opinions but that has always worked fine for me.

I originally had maybe just over a inch away from the stop pedal play, and at that point the forward rod nut was only a couple of threads on.

You've got me thinking of reasons why this would have been.

 

I should add that this thread has pretty much run it's course. I hope everyone enjoyed it a little, and maybe picked up a few pointers for their own conversion.

A big part of these things for me, is chasing the parts and learning how they work, as fun as actually using them!

Short of reporting on how the system actually works on the road, I probably won't post much more... but it's safe to say it's been a really enjoyable project and I'm excited to try it out!

 

Cheers and thanks to those who posted their own info to it.

Just don't forget where that box of seatbelts are.

If you need them, I just might have to deliver them.
