nice one Neal
I used the modern driveline trans crossmember. It really seemed to put the rear of the transmission too high. I didn't have to trim the shifter opening- no problems there. The formed metal brace that is spot welded to the underside floor a few inches ahead of the shifter opening is where the interference issue was.I had no problems with the shifter plate. But I used thehstock one. According to what I read some of the aftermarket ones need some trimming to of the shifter opening in the floor to fit. Who's trans cross member did you use? Mine is from Modern driveline.
Interesting. I had no problem there. When I put her on the lift next I'll look abd take some pictures. I have Mary Ann on it now replacing ps hoses and the harmonic balancer.I used the modern driveline trans crossmember. It really seemed to put the rear of the transmission too high.

This is the review for this part,Is there something unique in the tilt column switch or are they all the same? Would a Mustang one work...?
I may end up getting one or 2. They are the same on a fixed and tilt. Even though the way it connects to the key lock is not the same. I did swap the one from the tilt over so I could make it to a car show on Sunday. I have pictures on my Facebook page from it.The switch isn't really for a 1970 as the wires are not the correct length and the plug connection is different than the ones used in 1970. I was able to use the switch portion by splicing the short wires into the existing wires with the correct plug
Should be a Lmao button, i'm an idoit too, great post and pictures, Thanks NealI think I found what I need to know,
At about 1.44 this video stated it has a rubber plug installed to keep out debris and it will move when you install the drive shaft. I would think the manufacture would have a notice about it included for idiots like me.
