Hope you feel better soon. I was out most of this week myself. Hopefully you will be able to fish the fork around and get the clip engaged again without pulling the tranny. If it came off, it SHOULD be able to go back on.

cozwurth I mocked up a couple of different Camaro wheels on the front of the truck this evening. The first is a 17 x 9 from a Camaro SS, the second wheel is a 16 x 8 Camaro RS wheel, and a pic trying to show where the outside of the stock wheel/tire is in relation to the fender. Both clear the control arms, etc. even at full lock in both directions, but the 16 x 8 is closer to the end of the upper arm. I made up a plywood and lag stud rig to go between the wheel and the rotor hub. Unfortunately it is 2 1/4" thick (3 layers of 3/4 thick) to gain clearance for the upper control arm. Any less and the 16 x 8 gets uncomfortably close to the upper control arm. The 16 x 8's are mine, and the 17 x 9's are available for purchase, just not sure which way I want to go. Not overly thrilled with adapter/spacers, but I know several people who run them without issue. Thoughts?

Are you missing any spacers or shims that may keep it from wobbling around?

MARTINSR Ok, I found what I thought was the problem, I had installed the "clutch beam bracket" (bell crank thingie) wrong! It was too far up on the frame bracket allowing it to go forward too far. So I got that right and now it seems like the fork is screwed up, it moves around, I don't get this.

Yeah, I did that but will again, thanks.

No, thanks, but it's all there. But toss out anything that pops into your head, THAT is what will help me! Thanks!

Too Many Projects Got this new gauge panel for the '38 in the mail. Now I need to start a gofundme account to buy the gauges...
