Dusty, I'm in a very painful situation right now with my left side of the jaw and ears like an ear ache but much worse so let's try this.dustymojave wrote: ↑Mon May 02, 2022 7:26 pmThis is the 1st time I've seen the steering brake handles next to the shifter from this angle. Have you tried those out? I suspect trouble with interference between the brake handles and the shift lever. You may want to sit in the car and try pulling those handles (while making "Vroom - Vroom" noises!). I know the brakes aren't plumbed so there won't be the normal resistance. To reduce interference, you could bend the handles outward maybe 20° a little behind the shifter housing. You don't want to bend them too far out and start trouble with the seats that will already be rather close.
Go back to around page 87 and you will see just what was done so I could stack the bus shifter and the turning brake mount together. The bus tranny sits about 3" higher so I had to make a custom shifter mount (nailed it on the first try). I ran it through the tube to mount the turning brakes and used nutserts in the tunnel to mount the turning brake mount to.
Since the tranny was in place at the time, I adjusted the seat and shifter handle to trans rod to the best location for me and the others at the different seat adjustment position then adjusted the turning brake handles to fit it.
