03-06-2014 03:43 PM freezing cold soaking wet
guess I'm done for the day
earlier I did some brake bleeding W/ a vaccuummmm pump.
Found one fitting not even tightened- I'll have to talk to the night crew about that.
charged the battery for the triump last night, installed and a little gas.
4 kicks and fired wright up. Been since june or july. Decided to ride it down for some gas,
then a loop down by the river- oh well might as well get cold. That thing is a blast to ride.
Anyway it's out in the back yard, and I've got room in the shop
for assembling the motor, as soon as the brakes are finished.

Finished piping the brakes, all thats left is getting the air out.
And strap the rear.
Made up a resevour for fluid, should cut some time.

03-01-2014 04:48 PM Bending time
It took all day and about 6-7 bends but
the rear brake line is in. From pass. side door to
firewall at booster. Just need the check valve and hook up.
Luckily I bought another roll of tube, looking at my drawing
figured I might need it. It's got to be one shot, not couplings.
I didn't need it,with a little adjustment,
the first one fit. Not show quality, but better than what was in there.
But it looks close for the front ones, about 8-9 ft. left.
Saturday night- time for beer and hockey.
By the way, some great old cars in this moonshine movie.

02-28-2014 05:55 PM thought I had this brake kit under control
Thats what I get for thinking.
Thought I had every fitting and adapter I needed, but NO.
I go to bench bleed the master cylinder and discover
I need adapters for the 1/4 inch lines.
Took him a while but NAPA had them, also got a couple 30 amp relays.
Time to start piping brake lines I guess.
Hit up fleabay
ordered a head light/ wiring/ relay kit, already made up.
Got a bid in, on an under hood fuse panel for later rewiring project.

02-27-2014 08:20 PM Sure glad I got three hands
Wasn't going to work on the car today
give my back a rest.
But I was standing out there looking at it,
one thing after another.
The wireing harness was pulled and fished through a new hole,
and the brake bracket mounted.
I've got a couple buddies who would have been glad to
drive across town in traffic to give me a hand.
But I made a third hand with some salvaged computer magnets.
