|Scott's Remote Resevoir|
All of the above will go away... because I am going to be pioneering a new power brake
kit developed by my new pal Jeff Collins at Whitby Motorcar!!

While we wait for the above power brake package to arrive I decided to run the brake lines between the fronts and between the rears. I'll leave the last lines until the Master cylinder and booster arrive.
The first attempt left me with a mangled, multi-bent mess...
After a while I got the hang of it and it all turned out very neatly. My brother Vinnie and grandson Kam were over to help... and while the finished product looked very good... we went through about 15' of 3/16" line getting there.... what the hell no one said I was a professional :)

Buttoned up the fuel lines, fittings and pump. Used some heat shield to help protect from muffler.
Not a fan of the stuff sent by F5. Staring with the Tank it has all be replaced with Russell Braided Lines and AN fittings, a holly Blue Pump, Holley billet Filters (Post and Pre-Filters)

I wanted power brakes for the 33. This weekend it became reality. Thanks Jeff Collins at Whitby Motorcar! He created a kit for the car. Here are the installation steps.
Used a Grade 8 - ½ bolt of the correct length as a pivot rod as bushing is too tight for the Wilwood rod and c-clips. Used some spacers and a copper thrust bearing (From F5 Kit) so that the nut and bolt can be tightened without restricting free movement of the pedal.
Used a 1/4” bit to open the 4th and final mounting hole up in order to tap it with a 5/16” – 18 tap.
Next, used the mounting template as a guide, and a 7/8” hole saw and a Dremel tool to open the center oval slot. You are able to see the brake lever through that slot when done.
Used 3M synthetic double sided tape normally used for attaching emblems to cars. It is weather proof, very sticky and fairly dense.
|Good News - It runs and as a bonus the new MSD Distributor is much shorter and allows the use of the Cobra Air Cleaner - Yippee!|
