Street Trucks - - TECH -


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.
