Good point! I could use some gasket material but I can't think of how to protect the hydraulic lines from wearing on the edge of the hole without taking apart the line and feeding it through a chase nipple. Then re-bleeding. Ideas? I'm still waiting on some parts so I'll take time to see what I can find.I worry about the rubber, so close to the exhaust and so few friends.
I'm working on it. Heading to the hardware store.This must not be water tight. On my 66 I even had no cover or something, it was just open. No problems on car that barley sees rain.
Will it hold nice, if you just bolt the sheet metal to it and leave the rubber away?
I have fixed hatch windows, this is why I could use them. But I cut up the side panel near the window to make a new opening for the belt. I don't think it has to do with the room available.Tried some seat belt replacements but they weren't going to fit under the hatch window. Maybe that's why they went with two retractors...no room!

Yes. That is the problem. I'm not going to cut up my panels. I'd love to get rid of the lower retractors but not by cutting up my car. I'll get you some pictures of the seats.
The only thing I can think of is if your cap's seal isn't sealing and allowing fluid to flow past. As to why it would be pressurized enough to be able to do that, I really couldn't offer an explanation although it seems I remember seeing that happen before with no cap on the master cylinder.Today I bench bled a new master cylinder. Removed the old, installed the new, and re-bled the system. Got everything to the no leak point and took it for a spin for a couple of reasons. To check hoses on a 95 degree day and to see how the brakes feel. Drove about a mile and got back to the house. The brakes felt good the whole way. Temp stayed right in the middle all the way. The idle was set too high so I dropped it down. Man does it sound good. While turning the idle down I noticed there was brake fluid under the MC? The fittings were dry. Pulled it back in the garage and it seems there is brake fluid spouting out of the top? Do any of you guys know what could be causing this?
I think so too. Yesterday I looked all over for a cap. No luck, but I found a new gasket. I cleaned up the cap as best as I could and installed the gasket and put it on. Drove it today and the leak is still there but only a little. I'll put some more pressure on the hold down clamp and see it that takes care of the problem.The only thing I can think of is if your cap's seal isn't sealing and allowing fluid to flow past.
