Re: GM Clutch Modification

According to Vince Falter. A diaphragm clutch from a 83-88 Thunderbird or 84-86 Mustang SVO 2.3L Turbo is 9" and the same bolt pattern as the V8 pressure plate.

Re: Brake centering

The 1-5/16" dimension in Les book is to the shoulder of the stud, which I believe is 3/8" diameter. 1.499 minus half of 3/8 (3/16 or .1875") is 1.3115", which is .001" less than 1-5/16".

Re: Steering wobbe

What is the toe-in set at? Incorrect Toe (especially toe-out) can cause wandering.

Re: front axle

The King Pins can't be swapped side for side. If you did, the brake levers would push instead of pull.

Re: CAD Model of Model A Engine

I've thought about that. Some of the detail would need to be taken out though. What scale would you be interested in?
