OR an option to utilize your original cross link and my Designed bolts and spacers to raise the linkage similar to the "one piece formed link referenced above with tie rod ends. $ 40.00

I recommend you purchase all of the above items for your conversion. If you buy the recommended components I will throw in items 9. Fuel pump block plate and 10. Rod, Gas Pedal Upper, Free. All of the items listed are available individually or grouped. Plus shipping!

You may need an Pilot Shaft Adaptor for the Flywheel and T5 Transmission, depends on the type, diameter and length of the input shaft $ 70.00.

For those of you wanting a bit something special for your Alpine I would suggest an air conditioner system. Initially when doing the restoration on my ’67 SV with the 1725 engine I installed an A/C unit that also has heat and defrost. When I later converted my Commodore Blue ’67 SV to the 2.8 V6 I kept all of the under/in Dash components but designed a new mounting bracket to fit the V6 engine ( $125.00). PIC’s are available for the asking. It works nicely. That, and my Electric Power Steering (EPS) system that makes for a nice driving pleasure is also available.

P.S. I also fabricate replacement Hood release rod assembly. SV's Alpines utilize a cable in the hood release. Cables sometimes break and cause much difficulty in opening the hood. Earlier Models had a rod. This is as near to original as I can get it ($35.00).

Unfortunately I have not been successful in getting a reduction in the cost of my Straightback headers that are similar to the Tigers. However they are selling well.

In addition to reducing some of the cost, all items are powder coated at no additional cost to the buyer. The headers have an optional coating at buyers choice.

Pictures are in the SAOCA site PHOTO GALLERY Under Parts, Drawings and Technical for your viewing pleasure....and in DARKSIDE Gallery for the V6 conversion components. Additional information and PIC's are available upon request at:
