07-26-2005 01:54 PM Brake valves
I did a little brake work yesterday. Since the master cylinder is under the floor I needed pressure valves (which keeps fluid from returning back to the master cylinder, which causes it to overflow because my brakes are higher than the M.C.) and a proportioning valve. the proportioning valve is only for the back. I read that the front brakes should lock up before the back. Got it all back together, now the master cylinder is leaking. I did notice a much better feel on the pedal even with the small leak.

07-08-2005 11:27 AM Another Project
Over the weekend I aquired another project. It's a 29 model A frame, 1932 wire wheels, and a 1941 merc flathead. It's eventually going to be a rat rod. I'm working on drawings of what i want it to be. It won't be a serious project until the studebaker is finished...... Right now it's at my parents house until I get room in the garage.

I saw this in a magazine a while back, there was a car in the background of a picture up on these. thought it was a good inexpensive way to keep your car up. Very good when your doing something that jack stands might get in the way.

It's just a bunch of 2x4" cut to 16" and held together with stout screws.

06-07-2005 06:00 AM Planning the Chop
I plan on chopping the top, don't know when. I actually learned more about chopping a studebaker in another project journal. "1950bulletnose's" project journal shows how to do it. He actually used the same back window, which is always the hardest thing about a chop. I think I want to go with a 2" chop in front and maybe 3" in back, just enough to notice it's chopped. It might be a little too much in this photoshoped picture....
