  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, very soft brake pedal. The car will stop, but with that pedal you wonder how. Any ideas you guys have will be helpful. Thanks Dean.
  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.
  14. On right now Counting Cars Histroy channel. Danny just bought a 73 vert for $4500. Looks like pastel blue, 351 Cleveland.
  15. Vegasfastback, I started out with a 302 in my 71, bought 302 headers from Summit. Couple years later bought the 351W from Ford racing. Headers from the 302 fit 351W great. No problems with fitment.Sorry for rusty header pics. Dang rusty headers.
  16. I watch them most of the time, not much on Monday night. Just as most said, they never do the whole car. Motor, brakes,paint{maybe}, and then some tires and wheels. I enjoy Wheeler Dealers from England more.
  17. Been watching, I know one thing. That Boy doing the metal work on that Studebaker Truck. That Man has some Talent. If I only had half, hell even a quarter of his Talent. Just as most said, do not care for the added drama.
  18. This upsets me, I know it should not. You take your car to a show, not for trophies[sometimes]:) but to look at the other cars and enjoy Car Talk. Someone comes in with a Brand New Car, maybe a little chrome add-on here or there. It wins a trophy, I'm not jealous:P ,ok little bit. These are shows with no actual classes. It just burns my A** sometimes, why you say,it didn't require any discipline to attain it. Like most here, the Sweat,Blood, Tears,Time,Angry Wives, and Money [which the Wives are angry about]:angel: to take a car and make it into something Special. Our Cars. Just had to vent, Thank You for Your Time.
  19. Haters - always gonna hate. I say let them hate, as long as they FEAR:D
  20. Semi-gloss thats what I had done. Flat way to hard to take care of.
