|So I think I've found part of the issue with why the brakes don't seem to be building pressure: deep master...|
|and shallow pushrod.|
|So I ordered a long pushrod. Then I found a spare (once again, where the heck did I get a spare?). Old short pushrod to the right.|
|When I tried to insert the new pushrod, the 50 year old rubber cracked. Sigh.|
|So - time to replace.|
Not pictured, because the pic didn't come out: New booster came with an adjustable rod, which was a nice touch.
The feel is definitely different now. The pedal is much higher off the
floor and firm.|
The mount for the light switches had to be removed. Again. It's going to interfere with the column again so I won't be able to use it quite the way it started.
Not pulling the pedal assembly out again so I'll have to do my welding in-place (fun).
|I've used wire-brush-on-an-angle-grinder to clean up the underside.|
|Vaguely mounted the fuse boxes.|
|Pass side underneath is clean, and part of the top. I'll need to figure out mounting for the ECU, somewhere not in the way of the AC box.|
|The headlight buckets and battery tray have been primed.|
Also found the missing gas pedal assembly.
|I think I've figured out how to do the El Camino's headlight/dimmer switch with the Camaro harness.|
|Sigh. When I said "no leaks", I apparently spoke too soon. Hope is that this is about all that's going to come out. Fear is that under pressure it'll be a lot worse.|
|The little hole-of-unspecified-purpose (maybe radio antenna?) has had a plastic plug put in, and covered with strip-calk|
|Also I think I'll have to replace the AC ducting.|
Go back to the previous day (12 Apr 20)
