When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Im gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

Didn't get much done the rest of this week. My back was aching and yesterday I got my covid vaccine so my arm hurt today.
I did however, get the brake line from the master to the existing rear line.

I had to redo the double flare at the master for the be rear brakes. It leaked as soon as I put fluid to it.
Then on to the right front side. Removed the drums and got the caliper mount on. I'll put the bearing spacer on the spindle in the morning when it's 30 something. First I'll bake the spacer on the oven at 400 for 30 minutes. An appropriate sized pipe, socket and mallet will get it the rest of the way on.

I put the adapter on this morning. It's very similar to the original ball bearing race.
Discs and calipers on!

On the ground! Still need to bleed the brakes again. Still spongy and banjo fitting are not sealing well. Might need new crush washers.
