There's the 25 we need. I just got back from the metal shop and aproved the new design. The new 3/4" X 3/4" Notch in the upper right hand corner will completely clear the fuel lines. We've also added 1/2" to the vertical plate to keep the reinforcement of the Mount, after the notch has been made.

Should be able to start shipping by next wednesday.

Dave.

I'll try and get a digital rendering of the new design with the brake line notch, on this thread tomorrow.

So please let me know if you're sending your payment, I need to be able to tell the accountant when these things can start being paid for. I'm just the middle guy, you guys are the the only way this will work for everyone, so help me help you by letting me know what's coming in the mailbox.

Thanks again guys,

Dave

BTW, when you use the bumpstops, to sandwich, can you use the wornout stock mount, or do you have to buy new stock mount?

Because if new stock mount is required, I might as well just buy the GM mount.

As long as the stock mount is still in working order, you can use it and the bump stop. Even if the stock mount fails, the bump stop will "Stop" the diff from raising.

Thanks for your payment.

Anyone else?

I think a broken bottom mount would work fine if the bumper on top stopped the upward movement of the diff. The only thing the stock diff mount would do is keep the diff from hitting the crossmember, and unless the rubber comes entirely out I don't think that's likely to be a problem.

I totally hear ya. I'm just trying to suggest people use unbroken parts. The bump stop will stop the diff from moving up, when used on the R/T mount and the broken or even new one, will keep the diff from smacking the crossmember.

It is possible, but you'll have to......

Mount the R/T mount to the Z without the GM mount attached.

Loosely mount the GM poly mount to the top of the diff and the Stock mount to the bottom.

Mount the Poly to the R/T mount and tighten it all up, including the 2 large bolts so everything is tight.

Then mount the crossmember to the stock mount with the nut and washer.

Then you'll have to use a floorjack to compress the crossmember up to the car to bolt it in place with the 4 bolts.

This will literally compress both mounts and ain't Nothing Moving after that.

Very cool Dave. I haven't been on in a while so I'm coming in late to this thread but please count me in for one. I'll get the USPS MO out to you Monday or Tuesday.

You're now on the list. About half so far are spoken for. I'm almost sure that the other half will fly once you guys get yours and comment on them.

Thanks Adam,

Hi Dave,

Count me in! I will get the MO in the next couple of days and send it over. I'll send you the info. I will install everything in the next few weeks when I swap the 4:11 R180 setup into the car.

For everybody else as an FYI... I also had Dave rebuild my turn signal and headlight combo switches and I installed his HLH and PLH harnesses in my 2/71 240. This car is not yet on the road, but I am VERY close. The quality of Dave's work as well as his customer service and ease of installation is OUTSTANDING!

I will put together a full post of my build (over the last year) in a few weeks. I can't wait to get this car rolling! I will get my door seals this week (needed to complete the interior install). I will bolt my seats in next weekend and take it around the block for the first time since I bought it... WooHoo!!!

Thanks for putting this together Dave!!!

Tim

FYI Dave - Got everything buttoned up in the column tonight (still need to clean up wire under dash). You can see your combo-switch handy work here. Thanks for your help! :beer: (sorry for side-tracking the thread)... :stupid:

Looks good but make sure you tuck those wires before you're done. Or is that an Obvious thing? If you want, repost this in the Review section or on the Combo turn signal service thread. http://www.classiczcars.com/forums/showthread.php?t=24304

Keep us updated.
