    Are the clutch and brake arms interchangeable or are you able to move the brake arm over on the bracket assembly?

    Moved the pedal assembly up 3/4 inch and over about 1/4 inch. There is 9/16 inch clearance between the brake booster and valve cover. The engine would have to raise straight up 9/16 inch to hit the booster, not worried about anything now. Got the Saginaw steering box mount, tacked in place. Steering column is where it needs to be. Will work on the steering shafts before welding the steering mount in.

    Will that allow enough clearance to remove value cover and work on the value train?

    No, would have to pull booster master cylinder to get to valves. Engine has been rebuilt so should not have a issue for a while.

    That could get old real quick. I don't know the diameter of your booster but there may be one smaller that will give more clearance. For example, on my GPW, I have a middle 1980's S10 booster/master cylinder and have ample clearance to valve cover for maintenance.

    Welded the Power Steering gear mounted bracket on and painting it with POR-15. Made the panel to cover the heater holes and painted everthing. Bolted the pedals in and mounted the master cylinder and clutch cylinder.

    Over the past few weeks, got the brake pads for the rear disc and installed them. Installed the front knuckles, spindles and brake caliper mounts. Made a mount for the clutch slave cylinder and installed it. Got the tie rod made and did a mock up for the pitman arm, can now order it.
