    I finally got the stabilizer on tonight. I made U bolts from 3/8 muffler clamp bolts. Welded a bracket that mounts the tie rod and found a bracket to weld to the axle. Mounted both ends with 7/16 bolts. My spindle stops are a 1/16 away on both swings of the steering box with the stabilizer running full length and a 1/4 before fully compressed. I think I just sqeeked that in.
    I mounted the wheels and checked my angle. I got 7.5. I just got shims in to go 2 more degrees and these are steel. I can make them push the axle forward as well. Check out the wheel placement. I love the move. Now I gotta do the test drive. Only problem is Mator is in my way. Gas tanks aren't done yet.

    Since my last posting I decided to go automatic trans. it was a tough decision but the triple pedal position was not tolerable. Gas pedal was too dangerous and in this car that can't be the situation. So I pulled the turbo 350 out of storage and sized it up. All looked good. Found a starter, Hurst shifter, converter, and had to buy a flywheel and bolts to go up at the crank. If all goes well it will be a bolt in.

    this was gonna be tricky especially by myself. Tail had to go up and over the cross member then put the converter in before pushing up the trans bell housing area.

    everything was close at the fluid fittings but it worked fine with angle fittings. Started installing the shifter.

    Dropped the fluid and filter, made the cable shifter mounting bracket at the trans selecter bracket. Put up the driveshaft. All was exactly the same fit from the manual trans., Had to make trans line quick disconnect lines and needed a flexible dipstick.

    next had to rework the gas pedal setup. I cut the pedal base in half and bolted it up to the floor and frame. Then had to work out the trans kickdown cable bracket at the carb. this was all custom setup. couldn't buy brackets for this. Bent the pedal cable pull rod to work further back in the floor setup.

    I put the car down and went out on the road and it was a blast. It is downright violent. I still have one problem. Vibration coming from driveshaft. I knew when i cut it down it might be bad. After driving it i needed to get it out and checked by someone. Marty at LI driveshafts , now Supershafts was available. I last new of him being out in Bellport on Montauk Highway. I found out he moved to Holtsville. He took care of my needs and for a reasonable amount. The shaft took a balance and he didn't have to chop it up so I was proud of myself. I did a decent job putting it back together. I would recommend Marty for any drive shaft work you may need.
