Brake brain ache

This is a photo of my rear brake flexi that has been left and not used for 18 years. Blocked solid. Think that may be why no brake fluid was going through

Brake brain ache

Got it. Flexi from the copper brake line that goes down the chassis and along the rear axle then enters a 3 way junction is not letting brake fluid through. Will be replacing the rear flexi brake pipe and stripping and cleaning the rear junction. Let us hope and pray that will be the end of it.

Brake brain ache

Sounds like the Brake bias valve has worked, and is closed in the forward position. Had it happen to me just the once when a rear pipe split. It can be brought back into work by just swapping the two out pipes over and jumping on the pedal. If its the valve at fault you should be able to bleed the ...

Brake brain ache

A crushed pipe halfway down the chassis? Did you try blowing them through with the bias valve removed? That was a thought I was having when typing this item. Unlikely but I shall have to look. Going to try blowing through with an airline as well. The brakes were in a hell of a state but you cannot ...

Weber 38 Dgas

Many thanks for all the replies, much appreciated.

Will be blanked off. The tank, I believe, is original and the return piping is complete. Feeling a lot happier now.

This car is fighting every step of the way but she will be a beauty when finished.

Best wishes to you all,

Keith

Weber 38 Dgas

I have a question about the 38 Dgas installed on my engine. There were many missing parts on the engine and I believe there is a missing fitting from the carb. There is a fitting tube spigot above the accelerator gearing and below the brass coloured blank, as per photo, and I do not know if it shoul...

Many thanks for all your replies, much appreciated.

I have just ordered 4 from Graham Walker at £8 plus £1.75 postage which is OK for me. I am going to have a look at isaydingdong, sounds interesting.

New member from Norfolk

Well I have been so lacking in the adding of content. I am sorry for that The most amazing discovery has been the chassis. No not problems but high gloss black finish. I cannot believe how lucky I have been. The whole chassis is thick with oil and grease and I believe my grandfathers preachings have...

SE6A Lockheed Clutch Hydraulics

Excellent information and perfect for me as I have just discovered that my Lockheed master cylinder is not serviceable. The cost for direct replacement is eye watering and I shall certainly be undertaking this conversion. Many many thanks to all involved.

Brake worries

Would that reduce pressure to the front calipers as well. There is no forceful pressure when bleed open and brake pedal pressed hard. I wonder about the master cylinder. I only duplicated the seals directions on the master cylinder when changing them but I wonder if they could have been installed wr...

Would that be the part listed in Graham Walkers Catalogue as "Failure sensitive pressure reducing valve"? If so where abouts would that be hiding?

How about the pressure compensator on the chassis
What the devil. I never even new there was a compensator. Surely that could be the basis of all the problems. Many many thanks.
