It's not clear to me what i am looking at. They appear to be simply slotted pistons. NOT T-slotted. They are cracked into the oil ring groove???

John,

These are of the box from under the hood and two shots from inside.

Ihave been considering a longer belt and aback side tensioner for the AC compressor. It's probably going to be a necessity.

Your belts are gonna squeal like a pig when you turn your a/c on. You don't have enough belt wrap to drive your a/c compressor. Otherwise, it looks damn good!!

The pedal box for a XJ^ mounts on a horizontal surface. This necessitated a box arraigement to mount it. It is somewhat of a tight fit but I have managed to get the stock Packard peddle in the correct location in the interior. The dual master and the 4 wheel disc brakes are outstanding. If you have ever driven an XJ6 (4900lbs, looks light) you know how great they handle and ride. The rear end is also from a Jag. See pic.

Gelliott: What interests me the most about the pictures you have posted is the master cylinder and booster mounted on the firewall.

Could you please go into some detail about the mounting arrangment for the brake pedal.

Kev,

I realized after looking at the photo that I had sent in. That there would be questions about some of the changes I have made to my Packard. The mount is to attach to the Jag XJ6 suspension that i have added to the car.
I have attached another photo that can help to clearify the modifications.
