Did I make a list yesterday? Well I forgot it so I made it up as I went this afternoon. First order was mounting of the newly engoldened coil. Sweet. Next came a struggle with the rubber line to the clutch side of the hydraulic fluid reservoir. It went for the most part down hill from there until I left. I did get a fair chunk done though. Weber’s are ready to go at least. Still need filters.
In addition to a super dumb color coil is the MOST genius possible lazy mans mounting point for a Facet fuel pump. I should patent this placement! I went for an underhood placement when I discovered the hardline went to within about 2 inches from the fuel tank out back.
To make my stupifying pump placement possible I hogged out one side of the mount plate and enlarged the hole on the other side. In the background? Corner of a Kroil can courtesy of Bently man and former shop mate Roland. A yellow and red wire that is from the electric start on a Honda Dream, serious noise protection and a coffee can containing 2 sets of SS door/trunk buttons soaking in oil.
Ah yes, the brake master cylinder. So I plumbed the make-shift reservoir assembly and connected it to the clutch master line and hunted around for the brake master line. No find. Turns out it is this knotted up line in a box I had been curious about or a few days. In the epic battle to connect that line I ended up removing the master cylinder which of course led to a strip down and rebuild. Here it is post such. Good thing I had a kit on hand!
These wheels? 4.5″ x 15″ Borrani’s from the mid 60’s. Might be too little tire for a two liter powered TI. Still deciding. the 14X5.5’s on it have dry but do-able tires. We’ll see. Sombreros? I don’t think so.
There you have it. Proof that I am making progress. Well, for all you know I could have finished this project seven years ago and be spoon feeding old project pictures, but I guess there are enough eyewitnesses to know otherwise so trust me, I’m tired from being under the car struggling with the master cylinder.
Up next: plumb fuel pump, bleed hydraulics (YES!!!), test fit exhaust and start with the electrons. So excited. No, really.
