|Hurst line lock mounted in the rear
brake system on the frame under the driver's side door. This allows for
starting a burnout in the water and easing out of the water with the front
brakes being fully functional.
An adustable proportioning valve is mounted to the top of the frame under the driver's side door also. It is used to compensate for the larger wheel cylinders in the rear brakes. It is fully open when used with slicks at the drag strip. Approximately eight turns will balance the brakes for street use.
|The battery is mounted in a marine box on the package shelf in the trunk with a switch attached to the side. A stainless steel strap holds the box in place. Tygon tubing is used to vent the battery through a fitting in the floor. The positive lead consists of number 4 welding wire run along the frame to the starter. Corrugated wire loom is used to protect the cable. The negative lead goes through the trunk floor and is attached to the frame. The original battery was relieved of its guts with the case left in the stock location and the original battery cables were left intact. That way the ECM remains powered and the very expensive original positive cable is not mutilated. A ground wire was connected between the frame and the rear of the transmission to provide a solid ground for the drivetrain.|
