Turns out the WilWood e-brake cable is long enough to include the distance of the intermediate cable so I didn’t need this after-all ... only the front cable. Ordered at Ecklers. Cancelled the Impala Bob order.
Now ... the tie rod end assemblies from Impala Bob are outstanding.
Have the frame on rollers! Wahoo! Next week hope to get the engine and tranny mounted. I bought a 168 tooth flex plate and hi torque starter from Summit. I wasn’t thrilled about getting a starter motor which is going to sound like a Toyota, (had one of these in a ‘97 Tahoe), but clearance for the headers sold me. I’ll just have to be happy with the greater contrast between the wimpy sounding starter motor ... and the 383’s cherry bombs!
And look ... the body rolled-in behind the frame!
(Hmm, may have to return to this post, can’t figure out how to drag/drop in an iOS platform! SMH)
Well shoot, I guess I need training .. but here’s a link to my public FB album on this project. Perhaps that’ll work???
1961 Impala. 4 door. 283, turbo 350. Imron Midnight blue metallic with silver stripe.
