The trans and the bearing were installed together. The AP tech made sure to run the lines out of the bell and away from the exhaust.
Barry’s truck already had a clutch pedal. They’re fairly easy to find for Fords in a junkyard or any number of restoration catalogs.
Next up, the patented Hydramax master cylinder bracket was mounted on the firewall. Four holes were drilled into the bracket’s backing plate to prevent firewall flex. You may have to drill an additional hole higher up on the pedal to get the clutch rod ratio set correctly. For our sample truck, the mounting point had to be lengthened using a piece of flat stock to get the correct angle. AP will include this part in the kits.
The finished installation was ready for a new driveshaft.
Do a few simple measurements on the included driveshaft measurement form, and then send it in to AP. In a couple of days, your new driveshaft will show up, ready to install.
