Cleaned out the plier drawer in one of my tool boxes. First time in about thirty years. Immediately lost the retention clip for one of the slides. Spent two hours either trying to find the clip or making a useable clip. I'm now starting a google search for the clip. I am having second thoughts about the wrench drawer. Anybody a Mac tool guy?

That was the problem John, I would check after a few hours and nothing, not a speck. Then the next day the towel was soaked full and so was the mat under it! But last night I did it again and kept a better eye on it checking again this morning before I ran off to work. Yep, it is coming from between the pump and the motor, that means it's getting thru at the pump into the motor, so I will be pulling the whole thing apart again, crap.

Sounds AWESOME! I always say if I hit the lotto I don't think about what I would buy, I think about how I could spend every day with my wonderful wife. I would LOVE to be able to do that.

There has to be a seal between the motor and the pump. Do you know about availability of the seal? I know Hydre-lectric sells the pumps at affordable prices but who wants to spend a couple of hundred dollars if they can buy a 2 dollar seal. If I remember you did a really neat tutorial on redoing the pump. How much do you remember about how the seal is installed?

I guess all these questions are premature since you haven't taken it apart yet. Will look forward to hearing how you go about the fix.

John I'd never heard of Hydre-lectric before and for my own curiosity I checked them out. Very interesting. Makes me wish I had a convertible. Brian your seal kit would cost you $15.00. Neat!

They have been around for 40 years. I used them back in the 70's for '47 Ford top cylinders and was very pleased. Have not dealt with them in years though.

Today was a headache 1960 T-Bird brake

Today was a headache converting a single resivoir stock brake power booster and master cyclinder to a modern conversion. I used a GM booster and a s-10 master cyclinder and it lined up great but had to use all thread rods to make the bolts lone enough to match from the back of the firewall thrrough the booster. She finally lined up and got the paportioning valve right fittings was also a pain but now great breaks with double resevoir.

Worked on the Sprint Car for Friday night race

I bought out a complete sprint car team so my family can do what we have been wanting to for quite some time. I won't be driving, my 21 year old son will (he's younger and heals faster). Been working on one of the cars the last two days just making sure it's ready. Having a little fun in the back yard.
