Glad to hear it. You notice how much flex your frame has now?

I learned the hard way, was hoping you'd move the stands before it was too late.

Re: My 65 LS Swap Project

Updates from the last several weeks.

Most of my work was centered on the clutch master, brake master mounting and throttle pedal. Had a bitch of a time getting Modern Driveline clutch master pushrod to fit into small space. They use a hemi joint and a special adapter to bolt it to pedal. Adapter didn't fit without alot of grinding and hemi hit the bottom of the pedal box structure. Had to cut away part of the pedal box so pedal would swing correctly. Next challenge was the master would bottom out before getting anywhere close to the floor as was suggested in the instructions. Had to build an adjustable pedal stop to avoid ruining the master. You'd think they could engineer this better. They had to know this would be required if they actually installed this on a 64-66. Lokar throttle pedal is really a nice piece and bolted in easily. Thank God something went as it should!

Fuel system almost completed. Have one more line to make than install tank for last time. Also made bracket to mount corvette style filter/regulator and bracket to mount waterproof relay between rearend and fuel tank.

Mounted steering column and installed collaspible mid shaft.

Haven't figured out how to reroute my e-brake cable. its in the way of everything! Any suggestions?

Theres more to come.

That's where I put mine. It's pretty tight when the fenders (inner and outer) are installed. If I need to get to it, I'm pretty sure I will need to remove the inner fender panel.

Re: My 65 LS Swap Project

I placed my ECM / PCM on top of the glove box and underneath the dashboard top. I thought about putting it inside the glove box but that would have been a tight fit and then I'd have no glove box.

I had seen you post and did the same with mine. looks like the Holley HP ECM is a bit smaller so it fit a little better.

Re: My 65 LS Swap Project

Was laying under the car looking at the e-brake cable routing. I think I can move the existing round stock support thats attached to the floor support and add another one on the next forward floor support. Place them so the stock cable length is still ok, that'll run the cable under the tailshaft of the trans.

I'd much rather be putting together bigger items, I hate having to back up and redo things that worked fine before. These are the things that kill the timeline of a project for me.

Sorry about the spelling error in my previous post, stupid auto correct changed heim to hemi.

Re: My 65 LS Swap Project

Here's a couple of pictures of the mods I had to do to the pedal box to make the hydraulic master fit. Modern Driveline uses a modified F-Body master.

Cut away material that interfered with master pushrod heim joint arc.

Clutch pedal stop.

Thanks!

But thinking I'm going to fall short of my goal.... driving in 6 weeks. Listing my house for sale mid May.

Keep at it, when you are on a roll it's amazing how many things can get accomplished.

Re: My 65 LS Swap Project

Small update,

Got the parts I ordered for reroute of E-Brake cable. I'll post pics when I'm done.

Making up a few small brake lines right now, hope to wrap that up and bleed the brakes this weekend. Love flaring Nicopp! Have never used it before, very easy to work with.

While measuring for driveshaft I discovered I have a out of spec u-joint angle between the trans and driveshaft. Even raised the trans higher than the Holley provided spacers, best I can get is 4.5 degrees. Considering buying a driveshaft with the front CV joint. Expensive and not welcome at this given point.

Going to work on stuff that doesn't cost me a wad of cash for a couple of weeks. tired of spending money. LS swap ISN'T CHEAP!
