Hey Eddie, how many miles on your car? I just clicked over 25k this evening.
I think checking the clutch fork angle coming out of the bell housing will help you get the right height on the pivot bolt. Maybe someone with the same components can comment on what worked for them.Just noticed we are running two parallel threads about the same thing. Since this one is grandfathered will move over here with a quick recap.
5th year 12,000 mile cleanup & up grade.

Final mock up of new dash panel with custom gauges, recovered console & transmission cover. Remaining 4 dash switches will go in as its installed in the car. Have to run some sensor leads & it will be good to go. Will stick the snake & Cobra script once its in the car.
Previously had done over the virus lockdown:

Current status of rainy days & virus lock-down project. New NITTO NT01 275 & 315X 17" tires on the car, brake pads changed HAWK HPS
TO DO - fresh oil, oil filter & coolant, new oil pan gasket windage tray, new flywheel, pressure plate, friction disk, throw-out bearing, pilot bearing, fresh transmission fluid. Carpet trunk.
DONE - Steering Shaft was the last thing I needed to take out before I start putting it back together. Fresh rear end fluid, new dash panel & covering, new transmission covering, new console covering, plastic toggle switches replaced with metal ones, twin dual range USB ports added to transmission cover, new custom instruments, sensors & sensor wiring.
Some help on this question anyone:
Have new Centerforce Billet Steel flywheel 700215, Centerforce DF148500 Dual Friction Clutch Pressure Plate and Disc Set, Tremec Bellhousing TCCM 1899, Ford cable pull throw-out fork XR33-7515-AA.
Looks like an adjustable pivot ball. What is the correct height & how is it measured?
Last old dash panel is gone but have a complete set of working instruments & sensors if anyone is interested.

You mean my 21 year old granddaughter who just had a Virtual Graduation from University because of the bullshit lock-down?Looks like the perfect place to mock up a new dash. And I'm guessing "a lovely assistant" to prop it up for the photo shoot!! During my build I had a dining room full of body parts, wheels and tires. Used the table to wire the dash. The house smelled like a tire store. I loved it. Other occupants, not so much.
Whoa, great looking piece. Nice install, how much gas does it hold - looks pretty big.Installed the Boyd tank today! Used 4 bungee cords to suspend it while fitting and drilling... worked great!
Potentially a few inches for drop tank segments... about 1.25” all around
