1970 Avanti II Driveline

Hi Guys,

I am planning for this spring to hopefully finish my long awaited 1970 Project Avanti.

I am converting a Flight-o-matic to a Doug Nash 5 Speed Standard Transmission.

I have the pedals suspended and am using a scatter shield on the back of a heavily modified 355 CID.

I realize the new clutches are all diaphragm but seeing as I started this a long time ago it is old school technology.

I have a McLeod Borg & Beck Long clutch assembly which I don't believe they use any more(-11"?) Has anyone used a McLeod hydraulic throw out bearing? If so which model?

Any assistance and guidance is greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Bill

I

Keep track of the build and progress in pictures and when you finish this spring, send me some photos and a few paragraphs of what you did and how you did it, and maybe I can use it in Avanti Magazine.

OK Lew, will do. At this point I am awaiting a hoist installation so that when I get under the car, I can get back up! As you can imagine this is a major undertaking but I really think it will be worth it.

Cheers,

Bill

Mcleod is still in business so I'd just contact them and see what that install needs. Haven't seen a B&B setup since I put an SBC in a 39 Ford 40 years back. Worked very well, though.
