I'll be interested to see what your experience with band clamps is once running. Mine always leak at bolt joint. For obvious design reasons, I don't see how it wouldn't. But I started doing a 1" stitch weld and grinding it smooth where the joint would be, seemed to work better.

Well unfortunately I'm not holding anything back. Between my shoulder and daughter's softball I haven't touched the car. Did pick my driveshaft up Wed after work. Have to put the conversion joint on the rear, that's going to be fun while being a gimp. Hopefully I'll get some done this weekend.

Welp, over did it as usual.

Mowed then rolled in the garage. Swapped rear u joints, installed driveshaft, here's the long yoke installed. It does bottom out with at least an inch before you saddle the yoke, I'm ok with it.



Then was concerned about starting the engine and the rear turning.

Parking brake couldn't be hooked up, high dollar brp hot rods trans cross member had no provisions for the cable hook. Made my own.





Filled the trans, sealed shifter, called it a night.

Installed the steering column, gouged the hell out of it, also shortened up the gas pedal and got it even with the brake pedal. Will make shenanigans footwork easier.
Finished purging the hydro system and bled the brakes.





Exhaust is done, but not how I wanted. The tail pipes are retarded. The mufflers exit close to the frame, then the tailpipes go straight up against the coil springs, angle in towards the diff/control arms, run in front of the gas tank, etc. Just a pain in the ass with my shoulder.



So I did what I could



Worked on the idle tune, it's nice and steady at 700 rpm.

Bled the brakes and clutch, used the Motive power bleeder so I didn't have to involve any wemmens. The f'in brake adapter is of course from China, the silkscreen print on it wipes off with brake fluid, and it was a royal PIA to get it to seal. The j-bolts were fine, but the crappy dog link chain that comes with it wasn't. Every time you'd go to tighten up the chain it would pull the j-bolts sideways so all the clamping load was on the absolute outside of the rim causing the cover to bow and unseal. I've got blisters on my fingers from tightening/loosening it trying to find a happy medium that would hold enough pressure in order for me to get all the brakes bled. I honestly spent more time trying to get it right than I should have. Thinking about cutting a small piece of angle or square tube and drilling holes for the j-bolts so they stay upright. Larger washers were no help. Come to think of it, I bet c-clamps might have won that battle but the master is rounded on bottom for the piston..



The clutch adapter was 0 drama, screwed it on, even came w/ a nice swivel bit. I've got clutch, it's pretty tight feeling, can't wait to test it out.
