Bank Holiday Sunday
Been working on the HA again, today I finished off replacing various brake lines that had been removed as part of the pre paint job and now need to be replaced.
so in went new pipes and fittings, I made up. I then attempted to bled the brake system ready for road usage, I say attempted as I had forgotten just how much I hate bleeding brakes (in both senses of the word). I have some brakes, but the balance is all over the place, so I shall have another go tomorrow and see if its any better.
The car is up on axle stands so all the wheels are off the road, so I started the car up shoved it in gear and low and behold one rear wheel stays still and the other spins, so one brake needs adjusting.
I have fitted the missing part of the throttle linkage, but it keeps popping out so I think I will need to play with that some more, but at least I have a throttle linkage I can control via my foot.
I have stopped play for today as I have a small brake leak on the master cylinder and two water leaks on the coolant system, and those made me decide today was best spent away from the car, as I want a positive not a negative end to the day.
positives of the day, brake pipes fitted and throttle fitted.
