Not sure how I missed this either.

Wade, I live in Festus, just up the road from you.  If there's anything I can do to help, please say the word.

I have a pretty nice machine shop at my disposal if you need to make any "custom" parts.

Did you ever get your torque arm problem figured out?

Steve.

Steve, we decided to leave the arm as long as possible and mount it off the side of the transmission, instead of on it. We'll use a large heim and weld to the arm. A removable ladder bar crossmember up from with up and down adjustment holes to compensate for ride height. Decided not to reinvent the wheel. This is an area I thought best left alone, for safety's sake.

Just a quick update. I'll post some more pictures soon. We reinstalled the engine. Mounted the rest of the fuel system and lines. Mounted the ignition, battery and gauges. Mounted the radiator. A couple of upper strut rods to support the top of the seatback and it'll be good. Bought a powerglide cross member from UMR and modified it to fit the T-10. Zero'd the bellhousing and installed the flywheel and clutch assm. Also purchased 4 brand new wheels, tires and Moons at the Hot Rod reunion for $500. Pretty good deal. Used some panel bond to reattach the spoiler and put some securing screws in it.

I do need a little help. I'm told someone other than Mcleod makes a hydraulic throw out bearing. Does anyone know who that is? It needs to fit a Super T-10. I'm not opposed to the Mcleod, its just the price is not very inviting.

Thanks for help and stay tuned for the pics.

Quarter Master & Tilton also make hyd. release bearings but if McLeod $$$ got to you these will really knock you out.
Seriously Quarter Master makes an inexpensive unit that will work well for what you're doing.

Good Luck & Have Fun.

We use a Howe Racing throwout bearing and have been very happy with it. Fairly inexpensive, as well.

What hydraulic release bearing you need is determined by your clutch. The Howe unit would not work with our 10,000 RPM 2 disk mini clutch (not enough throw). We had to use this Coleman unit  http://www.colemanracing.com/Throw-Out-Bearing-Hydraulic-P4584.aspx which was suggested by the clutch manufacturer. Throw VS. master cyl bore dia. is critical and be sure to put in a pedal stop to prevent over centering the spring.

I see. How small is your clutch? We run a QM 3 disk 7.25" but the same bearing is good for a 5.5" as well.

 is not necessarily the diameter of the clutch but the dimension from the bell housing face to the release fingers and the throw required to release the clutch.
