    I have finally figured out the clutch problem. Destroyed main shaft bushing in the crank that the transmission main shaft rotates in. It was completely chewed up and in pieces. the main shaft had coned the shaft the throw out bearing slid on jamming at the coned out end.

    anyway I am now looking to fix the bubba brakes. There is a 68/69 Mopar master cylinder bubba mounted on the firewall directly above the left valve cover. its mounted on angle iron and strap steel. It has a bubba mounted hanging brake pedal that hangs from the top of the cowl. The Cowl pops up and down depending on how hard you push the brakes. Its gotta go. I am looking for either a nice tucked away master that fits more toward the fender on the firewall and a much cleaner hanging brake pedal or, go back to the original brake pedal with the bare minimum of a master down by the brake pedal and the reservoirs up in the upper part of the firewall.

    Where do I go to find these options to research and look to see if they fit in my application?

    Thanks,

    Robert

    Should be a lot of threads on this site concerning hanging pedals. Do a search. That will also likely lead to some master cylinder options.

    Thats why i always recommend a bronze bushing rather than a roller bearing for the pilot bearing. A small block chevy one works good.
