It's very close, but yes I can open it no problem.

Quick update on my fitment , I didn't use a proportioning valve I used a disc/drum master from a later galaxie. I cut my push rod and added a threaded section so it is adjustable and used that to set pedal height and feel .
At the mot (yearly roadworthinesstest) I had perfect brake balance front to rear and there was a1% difference between left and right front (legal limit is 25%) 20% rear . I can Stand my wagon on it's nose anytime I want and brakes don't fade at all going down hills at all.
The pedal feels like a modern car tbh

The missing pics is the greedy work of Photobucket, holding people's pictures for ransom. If Ziggy does not pay, I have some pics here https://www.fordmuscleforums.com/gala...onversion.html not as extensive but maybe better than nothing.

Ziggy I went to look at your thread, as I have a Scarebird kit on order, and I cannot see any photos. There is only a notification to "Please update your account to allow third party hosting".

I used all the stock linkage, however I have been looking at getting an adjustable push-rod to get the pedal a little bit higher.

I currently have my prop valve all the way open since I'm still having a soft pedal. However I think I found a kink in one of my lines so that may change.

I did not have to hammer it on, however it was a nice snug fit.
