    Also, the correct usage for the neutral safety switch would be to simply wire it to a clutch safety switch, that's made when you push the clutch down.

    I was too lazy to bother:), but that's how it *should* be wired.

    I was going to say that too. The green and pink wire should be for the reverse lights? And the two purple wires should be the NSS, you can just connect them together but like Todd said, you should put them on a switch for the clutch pedal.

    More travel but less leverage?

    Is that a cut to length pushrod for the brake?

    Quake,

    While I have both a hard stop like you created and a functioning neutral saftey switch, I need that brake rod that you got. If you have not put your pedals back in and are interested in a neutral saftey switch. . .let me know, I used a modern one, fabbed a bracket and made an adjustable, threaded pedal stop. You are getting it done. It took me almost as long and I am still not quite satisfied with everything. Keep pluggin, it is fun when done. Of course you will want some brakes too!

    Brent,

    Can you take some pictures of what you did for the safety switch and pedal stop? I still need to do both of these on my car!

    Are you talking about the original brake rod?? or new one from http://www.mpbrakes.com/

    If your talking bout the old rod you can have it. If you need the new
    rod, I used it. I can give you the part # cause they dont list it.

    As for the NSS I would really like to know how to do this.

    So I put on my new M/C rod and noticed I have a very hard brake pedal.
    When I compare the both clutch pedal arms, I notice the one I installed
    was a little different. I'm thinking the bracket and pedals must have
    came from a newer model 2nd gen. The brake rod stud was a little lower
    than the original 71 brake rod stud (HIGHER). I have a very slight angle
    to the rod and not sure if this will make a big difference. Im gonna call
    MPBRAKES and see what they say. I'm thinking it may have to be as straight
    as possible, but not sure.

    I did take the car around the block about 15 times. This thing rocks. I love it.
    I never got it out of 2nd. Someone called the cops cause I got busted in action.
    He did let me go:eek: He did talk more about the car and 6/speed swap then of how i was breaking the law.
