Jim offered to come over Friday and give me a hand getting the new brake lines installed. He had tubing benders and I didn't think my pre-bent lines would line up correctly. As it turns out, I was right. We got the lines from the master cylinder to the front cylinders and the tee for the rear brakes hooked up and then bled the entire system. I had previously remover the radiator and that was a good thing.

All along I have thought I was going to have to abandon my generator/power steering pump because they wouldn't fit with the dual master cylinder. Today I re-evaluated it and it will fit. I am going to try to re-install them for now, even though I think my power steering control valve is leaking again.





At least I am finally posting some progress.

Don...They make a relocation bracket, so your gen/power steering pump will clear the brake booster....Looks like you could fabricate one quite easily with a piece of angle iron....See link: http://www.danchuk.com/ItemForm.aspx?item=13527

Thanks David. I had heard about that but still didn't think I would have the room. As it turns out, I think it will fit in the original position. Since I had it out I painted it yesterday. I'll re-install it next chance I have and post a pic.

I think where I got confused was the original dual master cylinder I was going to install had a booster on it and therefore left less room. I had since changed to this one.

Don,

Did you make sure that your master cylinder has the deep hole in it that the pedal rod fits into?

Jim
I guess I don't know how to answer that Jim. I know the rod fit into the hole in the master cylinder and we were able to get brake pedal. It is a CCP master cylinder by the way.:confused0006:
