what the...

Post  D's557BBF on November 1st 2016, 12:12 pm

Ok "A head" guys in a foxbody mustang. How did you get this worked out?? I can't get to the last bolt on the valve cover. But now that I think about it, I won't be able to put the valve cover on at all. I don't have the rockers on that head. That's how i was able to slide the cover under that master cylinder Mad Mad Rolling Eyes

Can the engine be lower in the chassis?

Is it the body of the master cylinder blocking the hole or just the reservoir? If it's just the reservoir in the way you could pop it off the body. I believe that style is just pushed in with a couple o-rings to seal it.

I don't have the A Heads, just Eddy's but I am running 1.5" K Member spacers and it gets you a lot more room around the master cylinder. It really levels out the engine in the car also.



Your deal looks a bunch taller than mine, just a thought!!

Don't know what K member you have but you can buy a 2" drop k member. I don't run a heads but I do have the 2" drop k member with the pan sitting 1/2" off the cross member. I also run braided steel brake line at the master cylinder to be able to move it over when necessary without taking the lines off. Hope this helps.

I did two things, trimmed back the pinch weld flanges back to the spot welds and moved the master cylinder under the dash using a Wilwood pedal assembly with remote reservoirs.

With that same type of valve cover (they are very wide), we had to notch the corner to fit under the M/C on my '69 mustang. I posted some pics 4-16-16 or really close to that date.
