EVfun wrote: The older cast pedals look nicer and would be appropriate for your frame. I know the clutch cable location was moved inside the tunnel at least once. How far in from the edge the tube is located is the only critical dimension. If it is the same as both of your pedal assemblies then the one to use is up to you. I can say from experience that using a roller pedal in the early pedal assembly is a bit uncomfortable on long drives.

thanks for the info i will keep that in consideration

You have quite the project on your hands. About the same rusty place I started. Looks good so far. I noticed your body mold is almost identical to mine. The only 2 places I see a difference is the dash and the spots molded for the headlights. If you happen to know or find out who made your body let me know. In the meantime keep up the good work.

so my pedal dilema is solved. i took the newer base assembly with the factory roller assembly and put the older clutch and brake pedal on it. turns out all the shafts are the same size so i solved all my issues except the clutch and brake pedal return stop

cdnltded Mon Apr 20, 2015 9:43 pm

so i got one side floor pan cut out and just sitting in place. other side tomorrow night i hope




cdnltded Tue Apr 21, 2015 9:44 pm

got the right side floor cut and also go both of the tacked into place so i can move onto other things. and alos got my pedals figured out too.just need to figure out where to put the pedal stop bolt hole

so here is another question for all that have lots of experience.
can i use a older 1200 that is complete but seized as a engine to do all my fabbing around.
is there much difference in size to a 1500

cdnltded Fri Apr 24, 2015 6:30 am

does anyone know??
:cry:

heywebonya Fri Apr 24, 2015 6:40 am

For fabbing, there is no engine size issues to be concerned about. The layout of exhaust COULD be an issue.

Nice job so far.

joescoolcustoms Fri Apr 24, 2015 10:47 am

The only issue of difference is the exhaust. A 1200 is more narrow than a 1500/1600 at the exhaust ports by about 1 inch overall. So, if you have your final exhaust on hand, loosen the heads and spread them apart enough to get the exhaust on. You will need to loosen the intake and tins to do this.

It also will not have the dog house shroud if that makes any difference.

cdnltded Thu Apr 30, 2015 9:46 pm

got some work done at the batwing tonight, just welded in some vertical pieces, that later i will attach some wider more supportive metal



this metal work takes longer then one would expect. a couple of hours a night just doesnt seem to be enough

cdnltded Wed May 06, 2015 9:43 pm

started to do the fab work for my gm/buick steering column
this is from the underside trying to get things into place



just got the column held in place with a strap need to make the uprights for it yet





cdnltded Thu May 07, 2015 9:41 pm
