Not sure what’s the end plan electrical wise but why not put most/all wiring, cable, starter solenoid inside that under seat compartment? For a cleaner under hood.

I have some fire sleeve if you need a couple feet for that driver side valve cover area. Used it for running either my starter or winch power behind the header, forget which.

Cleaner means more work if there is a problem...
I’m ok with the looks, just dislike the remote battery..

I’m going to order a longer cable and run on other side of pedal boxes..
I never wanted a red car.. always thought they were tacky and common...
I now have 4 very not common cars and they are all red.. :o

Despite electrical success unseen problems happen..
Couple of pictures as to what I’m dealing with...

Went to start the motor yesterday, filled and bled clutch, no engagement.
I wasn’t getting any clutch action due to the fork hitting the back of the housing window. 
Made a longer pushrod (before we had housing contact) and things just got worse.
Despite kicking myself and cursing, gearbox removal is rather simple... floors and seat come out and transmission gets lifted up rather than down.
Tranny out and throwout bearing proved evidence of perhaps something else.   I think constant pushing on the fork the input shaft acted as a wedge and I had enough force to bend the back... 
any thought?
There appears to be no surface wear on either clutch pressure plate or bearing...

I think this comes down to fork or bearing height and travel allowed..

Calling Novak and getting an adjustable bearing and ball stud..
I have a few clutch arms in stock, should have enough to cobble something together.

This.

 I think you meant there’s no disengagement?

Syntax aside
When you engage the pedal it doesn’t disengage the clutch..
It’s deff a bearing height issue...
