With my new Dana 60 cradle I can wheel the assembly in and out of the car pretty quickly now. Guess it is just an example of having the right tool for the job. In this case I had to design the tool myself but guess that is how it works sometimes.

Starting to work on the trunk area. I think I have it all figured out now in terms of where the fuel cell goes and how to plumb up the fuel system.

Got the trans cooler mounted to the bottom of the trunk floor and installed. Also picked up a CSR shield and a Moroso pan for the trans.

Got the ears cut off the trans so the CSR shield would fit and I welded in a couple of crossmembers under the trunk floor to hold everything nice and secure back there.

andy, could you show a side pic [if you have one] of the transmission cooler spacing to the trunk floor ? i'm guessing the fan is blowing up towards the bottom of the trunk floor ? thanks !

I think the fan pulls air down thru the core. There is a fairly large air gap between the radiator core and the bottom of the trunk floor. The Derale cooler comes as an assembly, you just bolt it on.

I built a fixture for my floor jack so I can hold the entire front suspension setup. This allows me to just pull the K frame bolts and drop it out. I can stash the front suspension in a corner of the shop until I'm ready to put it back in and then just lift it into place with the trans jack.

It is a super handy tool but I doubt I'd sell very many of them. Besides, the shipping cost would be really high. I could sell a "u weld it" kit though and guys could make their own from a piece of tubing.

Andy, did you choose a fuel cell yet? Call me if not. Great work. Such a clean and well-thought out build.

Decided to install a new Strange pinion yoke with an 8 magnet trigger wheel. This will give me driveshaft speed as well as a signal for the speedometer. Maybe even an odometer? Or I might use GPS for the odometer, not sure yet.

One problem I ran into is that this pinion yoke is 1/2 inch longer than the yoke that was on there so now I'll need to shorten my brand new driveshaft.

Starting to mock up the front brakes. This car has the original 4 piston disc brakes on the front but I don't think they will be up to the task of stopping the car. So I'm thinking that I'll pull the factory disc brakes off the car and sell them and then put these 13 inch rotors with Viper calipers up front. DoctorDiff sells the parts to do this swap so I'll work with him to get it all figured out.

We used the stock OEM 1967 to 1972 Kelsey Hayes four piston calipers, pads and rotors on my old 1970 bracket Duster with all three motors, SB, M.W. 440 Wedge and the cross ram M.P. 426 race hemi motor that ran 142.+ MPH in the 1/4 mile with no issues stopping it any where shruggy
That was not on the street in traffic either work
Way better to have way more brakes on the car than you need, huh whistling up

Whats the silver steel round tab for, to hold the driveshaft wheel sensor? Might not be the best place for it. Might try to act like a snubber.

No, that is the lift hook so I can move the rear end around.

I guess I'll take my chances. I have a Holley pump in the dyno cell and it has been working fine since day one. I like the integrated regulator and filter combo that Holley sells too even though other people tell me not to use it.

Got the DoctorDiff 13 inch front brake kit mocked up on the Duster. Looks killer. Now I need to figure out which wheels to buy. I'll need a 17 inch rim that is probably 6 inches wide. Weld makes some race 17 inch rims so I might go with them.

If you end up selling the front discs, I might be interested. There may be an A-body coming home soon. Nowhere near as clean as yours, though.
I am always amazed by your fabrication skills. I need to learn to whip up stuff I need rather than buying it. Well done. This is a fun thread.
