We also need another push rod holder like the one pictured here.

-Cut a piece of scrap to size
-Drilled the center hole
-Scored and bent the metal
-Welded the edges to restore rigidity

I welded on a nut, but have already cut it off because I allowed it to warp and the rod came out at an angle. We'll try it again this week.

Finally, a day to finish this part...

-I welded a nut to the top of the bracket.
-Ground down a bolt head for the push rod.
-Cut another bolt down and drilled a hole for a hitch pin.

Anyone know how I can move this thread to a Project Journal?

I don't think it's possible to "move this thread", but you could start a project journal by registering your forum user name for journal use ... and then insert your picture and copy/paste any text from this thread.

You can then add / edit your story to your heart's content.

Thanks for the reply. That's what I'll do. I have questions to ask, but I'm not making it easy embedding them inside this project...

Thanks again.

Well, can't seem to get a project journal started. When I login, it says I have an invalid username. When I try to register, it tells me I am already registered. Obviously, I am doing something wrong. Can anyone help me out with this? Thanks.

In the meantime, got some more done.

Needed a clutch pedal stop. Pretty simple here and got to use my home made hydraulic press!

Bent and tapped some scrap to accept an elevator bolt. Glued some rubber to the end of the elevator bolt for cushion. Conveniently, there was ledge on the pedal hangar for easy attaching.

Also trimmed the MC bracket.

You can see in the second pic a patch for the previous hole I used the first time I did this conversion. This time I was able to locate the clutch MC almost 2 inches higher for better mechanical advantage.

I am still anxious about using the hydraulic throw out bearing. If anyone has used/is using the hyd throw out bearing, would like to hear about your experience.

just a FYI;

The journal forums are on different software on different servers, moderator can not move a thread to the journal forum...

The member must sign up for a journal and build it

Perhaps one of the mods could help you? Or someone who has recently created a journal? I've had mine since 2005 ... and just can't recall.
