    Gents,


    I live in Jax if anyone would like to me to have a look at this car. I'm nowhere near the knowledge level that the "average" guy on here has, however I do listen and can talk with you on the phone while looking the car over (or take pictures)

    ZRay,


    If I can get a current match then that would be preferred, however if I'm unable how close is the Eastwoods Satin?


    Thanks,


    Biff

    ZRay / Gents,


    I went with the Cobra Automotive's new aluminum dual bowl master cylinder. I'm also upgrading the brake lines to braided. The proportioning valve is restored and ready to go, so now all I have to do is repair the damaged paint in the engine bay. My questions are: What color paint is the bay, and where should I get it from (car is a driver). The bay has some serious brake fluid in it from the leak (below the p-valve area) and I'm curious what I should do to remove the fluid and prep the metal for painting? I'm thinking on using POR15 Marine Clean, Prep & Ready, and POR15 coating (in either black, clear or semi gloss black).


    Thanks in advance,


    Damon

    Gents,


    I'm looking at upgrading my stock brake system (disc/drum) to disc's all the way around. I would like to put on Wilwoods that allow me to use my SS wheels.


    1. Is there a wilwood disc that fits the SS wheel?


    2. Does wilwood change offset (want to put some 17x8's on eventually?


    Thanks in advance for help.

    ZRay,


    Post removal analysis directed the rebuild be done by one more skilled than myself. It's at Jim's as I type this and should be back in about a month.

    After watching Speed channel I felt smart enough to take the p-valve off.




    I will update as soon as it's apart.




    Have any of you had one of these re-sleeved and done the rebuild yourself?

    Z,


    I have actually given it quite a bit of thought but haven't had the money to push that way but should shortly. I have been looking at them along with rear disc brakes (but dont' think there is an option that allows the use of SS wheels and something like Wilwood discs all around). I even went as far as to buy a product called Tank Armor (at least that's what I think it was called) due to the less than safe design of the early fuel tank / trunk / proximity to my kids / what happens if I get rear ended scenario. It's not installed yet but will go in eventually. Would like to add three point seat belts and a few other safety items (purity of car comes behind safety in some things).


    Have you installed a newer master cylinder and if so which one?


    Damon

    Gents,


    Thanks for the quick reply! I just got off the phone with one of the F15 crew chiefs and he said the same thing. My P-valve has threads at the front but beyond that would spend quite a bit of time trying to describe it. Let me look at the link and see if I can better ID it from there!


    Thanks,


    Damon

    I just went to start my Kar and the brake pedal went to the floor and stayed. I opened the hood to find a small puddle under the car (brake fluid) and some wet areas. The master cylinder is dry, as is all the brake lines running out of it. However, lower than the Mstr Cyl mounted to the drivers fender side of the engine bay is a small cylinder shaped device about 4-5 inches long. It has two brake lines running into the top of it. It's soaked on it's underside as is the inner fender below it. I'm not a mechanic by any stretch but know the knowledge database here is tremendous. Any idea's what it is?


    Thanks in advance!

    I have a Metchuen built 66 with a VIN stamped engine, however I haven't been able to find the VIN on the transmission. Exactly where should it be when looking up at the bottom of the car facing forward?
