Thanks Enzio, thats mighty nice of ya.
There might be a little something extra in your Christmas stocking. ;)

What's up?


I've been listening to the front brake pads go clackety-clack at low parking lot speeds.
I imagine this is because some idiot (ahem) mounted the line loc almost as high as the master cylinder.
Needed to keep it all going downhill.

So i ordered this 2lb Residual Pressure valve to add to the front and think it will solve the problem.
My left over piece of Stainless steel line is probably too short and I already killed the cheap-o brake flair ing tool doing the other stainless flairs.
It was not happy after about 3 uses.
At least the SS lines are cute to look at.
One yr old master cylinder is very rusty looking now. Why cant that be stainless too?

So bought and bent some stuff from local auto store.
Replacing line from master to proportioning block.
Should of bought fluid to though.
Will be installing soon.

80 degrees = Fricken Nice! :) :banana: :nice::rock::cookie::D;)



Wiped it down with thinner a couple of times, then
Chip brush and a can of 'rust barrier.' Well probably melt first time the fluid hits it.
Florida water temp 88 degrees. For those of you whom have never felt 88 degree ocean water. There is nothing like it for healing old bones.

Time to pass the yearly safety inspection already.
The exhaust has been leaking since the moment the old water pump left us, may it RIP.
So up on the jack stands and we pulled the Y~ pipe out.

This manifold doughnut was the issue, I guess the coolant explosion killed it.
Missing some @ 12 o clock, can see divot.

Exhaust Y pipe is back in.

Now...
At full left hand steering lock, the passenger rim rubs, on the front of right upper A arm.
See shiny spot with rim shrapnel sitting next to it.

Ground that offending corner right the heck off, and then touched it up with a twig and my can of black rustoilem.
Spun tire by hand and I think I'm ok but have to drop it and drive it first 2B sure.
