  1. Thanks c9zx for all your help. Dean. Sent from my SM-G925V using Tapatalk
  2. well c9zx, my rear calipers do not adjust like on the video. Per my instructions the caliper pistons adjust hydraulically by pumping the pedal, till a hard pedal is achieved. That does not seem to work. I did get the parking brake working though. I still did not remove the residual valve in the master cylinder, do you think it will make a difference? The brake pedal is still soft. I also might try and change the two rubber hoses on the back calipers to stainless ones. Thanks Dean.
  3. Once again a Big Thanks to you guys for all the Good info. Dean. Sent from my SM-G925V using Tapatalk
  4. c9zx that is very interesting about the e brake. Here is the thing I don't have mine hooked up. This could be the problem, never adjusted it because I do not use it. The video link was very good . Maybe my back pistons have to far to travel before contact with the rotor. This gives me the soft pedal. Hope this is it. What do you guys think? I know I should have had the e brake hooked up. Sent from my SM-G925V using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks Bentworker, I will have to look into that. The rear set-up I have was from Summit Racing.
  6. Don C, I did replace the flex line at the rear axle and eddyw I also adjusted the stem on the booster. I checked it and re checked it. I guess air could still be in the lines. Will try and bleed them again and get an adjustable proportion valve. This is Driving me Crazy :@
  7. Thanks Guys also. Sent from my SM-G925V using Tapatalk
  8. To answer all, I did bench bleed all the master cylinders, made sure calibers are on right with bleeders at highest point, stainless braided lines up front new and new rubber line in back, have tried old two man bleeding also, only thing I have not changed is it still has the old proportioning value. Been meaning to change it, do you thing that could be the reason for the soft pedal? Sent from my SM-G925V using Tapatalk
  9. :chin:Sorry, I know I have asked this question here before. Just got the car down off the jack stands and took it for a spin. Runs good but still that darn really soft brake pedal. Here is what I have done in the past. New master cylinder, rebuilt booster, Both rebuilt front calipers. stainless flex lines to the front calipers, I have put rear disc system on the back and I have bled the brakes so many times that I probably went through 5 gallons of brake fluid. Forgot I have tried at least three different master cylinders, one was a rebuilt 85 SVO mustang ( larger bore) . Same thing soft, ver
  10. Have not been on the site in awhile. Just wanted to say Hey! I have not had the car out in about two years, Life got in the way :@. Going to get her out in about two weeks. Try to get to some shows this year. Will be talking at you guys soon. Dean.
  11. Anyone hear this. Was at a car show Saturday, guy with a 56 chevy came over and started talking. The subject of ethanol came up. He said a engineer friend of his said to put 1oz to every 5gallons of gas - 2 stroke marine oil with TCW3 in it. I check walmart has it and googled it. Some people are trying it, anyone hear about this?:dodgy:
  12. Burris scope scout is a good buy for the scout rifle, made in USA, Greely Colo. even if Colo. is being an A** to Gun owners. Picked up Remington R1 .45 acp in duo-tone couple months ago. Shoots great, but as Jim said Firearms are personal. Everyone has an opinion.
  13. Just wish they showed more. Don't get to see a 71 -73 build often or at all. Not a fan of side pipes or fender flares, but they made it work. Nice, loved the roll bar also.
