Little more work on the t/a today. The whole front left corner is sitting higher than the rest of the car. Hope it's suspension related and not something worse. Maybe just bad shocks or springs

Replaced a brake line and pulled the wheel cylinder off on the front driver's side of my 68 caddy. The line was a the soft line. But at least I managed not to mess up the hard line, was afraid of doing that at one point. Then I almost couldn't get the wrench off the fitting on the hard line. On the plus side I did get to use my wizard ratchet for the first time and it was nice.

this weekend

Well I had my welder friend make a custom bracket for the Specialty wiper motor which i mounted inside the passenger side front cowl of my 31. Bent the aluminum tubing to house the drive cable and ran it up the window and over the front glass to the transmission. Not as easy to install as the video that comes with it. Hope to power the motor this weekend and try it out. Then all I have to do is mount the switch and wire the harness.
My friend welded a stainless steel bracket, not sure why stainless just cost more, looks good though.
Its New England football this weekend so I have to work around that and my real job. sc

An older made in the USA brand. Got it in a bag of tools at the local pawn shop. The whole bag was 5 dollars.

Wizard used to be Western Auto's store brand. I still have an old Wizard 1/4 inch electric drill I bought in 1970. Lord, I really am old!

Didn't know for sure. All I knew was that it was an older brand. The ratchet is pretty smooth working. Did ok for the light duty stuff I did last night.
