just replaced master cylinder and proportioning valve switch (still seeping fluid out of new switch) upon closer inspection i discovered that an 1/8" npt pipe plug fits in place of that switch (problem solved) car had new master cylinder,calipers,rotors, drums,brakes front and rear, new rear brake hardware, when i got the car, so i figured i saved a couple of hundred dollars, weeeellll maybe.
i had hoped to have the torino completely disassembled by now, to have the body dipped, then rust repair, body work, paint (the fun stuff) so the torino project has been on standby status as i have been working on a couple of projects for my step brother (they are both fords tooConfused) and i figure we've got a couple of 4 day holiday weekends coming up! so time to get those projects busted out, so i can get serious about the torinoThumbs Up
 so be patient and stay tuned, more to come (and with pics of coarse)...

You are making great progress. Glad you swapped the seats, as that looked just marginally safe!

AFTER MODIFICATION, grind off about 1/8" inch of the tab above the  starter bolt, on the side of the tab.

driver side header did require a little bit more modification (all in all not bad, as far as headers go) grinding on the top edge of the motor mount by the bolts
