It was necessary to fabricate the actuating rods from the master cylinder to the crank. With the bellcrank tacked to the crossmember, Chad measured the distance from the center of the yoke at the end of the rod to the piston inside the master cylinder bore, to figure out the correct length of each rod. The clutch rod is 3 1/2 inches long; the brake rod is 4 1/4 inches. Both are 1/2-inch stainless bar, necked down to 3/8-inch at the master cylinder end to ensure there is clearance for the rod to move inside the master cylinder as it pivots on the bellcrank.
