    Is that one those pills? I don't really understand how they work. I'll look it up.

    one more follow-up

    The calipers do clear the 14" Rallye rims by a good 1/4". No worries there. But I've ordered 15" x 6" small bolt pattern Rallyes just to have better tire selection. Not much in the way of 14" tires...

    quick follow-up

    Peeps,

    Mark at Scarebird made a new set of brackets for me. Neither he nor I knew that early 8-3/4" rear diffs have shorter axles. I found some illuminating literature on that subject that says...

    new distributor recommendation

    Hey gang.

    I'm mulling over buying a new distributor. My application is a '65 Barracuda with a somewhat built 360. It has an MSD 6AL ignition box and an MSD pro-billet dizzy. My only complaint is...

    Oh, totally. But I went into this project knowing it wasn't a kit. It was destined to be a project. I've been taking photos and notes along the way so once my setup is done I'll write up a how-to...

    Yes. My 14" rally rims do clear by 1/4". Not much, but enough. Just to be on the safe side I'll report back when the new brackets arrive. If anything I suspect they'll provide a bit more clearance.

    late update

    I ended up sending the brackets back to the manufacturer to be re-made with the correct offset. That way I won't need shims at all. I don't know what the axle hub differences are year-by-year but I'm...

    pix of enlightenment

    Okay, here are some photos that show the problem probably better than I can explain it. In the first photo you can see how the rotor rubs right against the right side of the caliper.

    That would certainly be the better way to go. I can see how to shim the caliper on the bracket to move the caliper outboard, but that only makes the problem worse. It doesn't seem possible to shim...

    Agreed. I reached out to a couple of places who make custom spacers who also agreed that 5x100mm is the easiest approach, but I need only 0.100" thickness. Apparently the minimum thickness they sell...

    sbp rotor shims - disc caliper alignment

    Hey gang,

    I'm putting together rear disc brakes on my '65 Barracuda that has an 8-3/4" rear end with a small bolt pattern for wheels.

    The rotors sit right up against the inboard side of the...
  12. hard clutch pedal, pressure plate recommendation?

    I've been out for a long time with my '65 Barracuda in storage. It has a 360ci engine and a 4-speed OD gearbox with a hydraulic clutch. The slave is a concentric slave bearing from American...
