Hi Mark, you are correct. The strut has no effect until the door is opened at least 1/8th of possible opening. The strut is very slightly over centre with the door closed. Hope that makes sense.

I am really happy with the end result.

Cheers Nigel

Makin' progress, Todd. When you get to the brake/fuel lines, let me know if you need a good flaring tool.

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, 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 instruments, sensors & sensor wiring.


Some help on this question:

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?
