Working on the pan today. Pedal bushings arrived. Maybe I can get the brakes finished.

Use the Hurst shifter with the thicker nylon bushing. Mui bueno!
Or.. there’s a guy on Samba that makes a metal plate to reenforce the Hurst shifters with the thin nylon bushing. The thin bushing will break on you at the worst possible time! …2nd gear in the middle of a big ass intersection.
Do you have to make a speedo tube? 57-65 uses the sheathed cable.
Cip1 sells the RHD speedo cables. Good quality.

Is it a earlier version of the shifter? The type that polishes through to copper? I just contacted Bruce for one of the shifter plates.PeteParticipantAugust 10, 2018 at 11:43 amPost count: 382

Here’s the block on my shifter base. It’s been rebuilt and the block looked new, so I have no idea if this would have been a reproduction of what was originally there but it’s definitely the thicker style.Critter1ParticipantAugust 10, 2018 at 3:31 pmPost count: 154
Franz, Not sure if they’ll polish through to copper..? I believe Hurst sold the copper shifters you sometimes see, as “copper”.
Pete, the later production shifters were made with the thicker blocks. Yours is good to go, rebuilt with a new thick block. Doesn’t need any reenforcement.

Sooo RHD pedal bushings are different than the LHD kit they sell….I’ll have to make custom on the lathe. I ordered some brass from mcmaster that I can cut down.
We did recieve the accelerator shaft and roller pedal yesterday. I finalized a bunch of brake stuff, and started bending/flaring a bus long brake line to route on the left side of the tunnel then jump over to the RHD master cylinder at the front. Pan is nearing 100%.AndymParticipantAugust 11, 2018 at 3:51 pmPost count: 442
Huge project!! This one looks like a challenge and will be badass when it’s done.

FABROCATION….. 😎 This project presents a few extra challenges from the standard oval build.. Or Vert build!
The semi’s look so good… I was a bit worried about their fit, but they look awesome! 😎 WISCONSIN is on my Radar!unkParticipantAugust 13, 2018 at 8:15 amPost count: 188

Thanks, KCW. Don’t feel any rush to get this done by snow time (which is sometimes October).
oval build – piece of cake
vert build – a bit of a PIA.
oval, vert, RHD = not quite a synchro, subi build but might rank up there.
thanks, guys.BBWBParticipantAugust 13, 2018 at 10:01 pmPost count: 459
From cut in half to now, is nothing short of amazing!

Pics from the camera… we’re down to one shop camera.. I should go buy one… 8-( I have bought soooo many camera’s in 17 years of doing what I do;..8-)
Franz is dragging this project along for us… Not like dragging his feet, but like this car isn’t a cooperative HO… 😎 the pedal bushings were shot… so Franz had to make some… This is why Franz is putting this car together..
