That looks pretty straightforward. Just cut the activator rod and re-thread to the right length. Is the top cover workable through the floorboard opening or do you have to remove the left side fender? 

Did you rig a firewall fluid reservoir? 

Nice job.

No on the firewall reservoir. I believe I  will be able to get to it from the floor board opening. I'll know for sure when it is all assembled.

Most recent photo.....
 

Also got the motor to turn over. Used some stuff called Corrosion Block that was recommended to me. It is found in boat stores and although kind of expensive ($20 for 12 ounces) it was well worth it.

 When I have more time I will add more photos.

The M38 looks like it has factory spec 700-16 tires.


Really interested in your dual master cylinder setup - was it bolt-in or will you weld it in place? Have you plummmed it yet? Many installations seem to have clearance issues at the bellhousing and yours seems to have extra room

It is bolted in and I might have added a couple of tack welds.  No brakes lines on yet and the clearance issue, I would not doubt it if I put it on wrong LOL

Americar is cool....I think I  may have one of those blocks still hanging around in NY.
 
Congrats on the first start!! Get yourself a squeeze detergent bottle with some gas in it, lots safer for your pistons than ether...

This was yesterday, I replaced the steering box with one from a 2A after this video. The one I had in there was about an inch longer with no horn, plus it was a pain in the arse to turn.
