Now THAT'S PURDY!!!
I'm talking about the earlier pic of your truck.
I cut the one that was probably in better shape. I couldn't find where I chunked the bad one. It was just full of crud and nasty fluid even though I flushed the brakes over the summer just like the caliper was. That outer line is pretty tough, but I can see how that inner one can fail.
What usually happens is a flap will break free and not allow fluid to return to the MC
Thank you very much. I really appreciate that. You have a Jimmy that you've had a while, huh? I like GMCs because they seem less prevalent in older model trucks. I'd love to find me a mid-70s GMC Sprint even though that's a car. My dad had an '86 Jimmy that I really liked. It was the first vehicle I drove, and I thought it was the coolest thing ever. It made me want to get one, too.
I read about that. I can almost guarantee you it was doing that since it was the only crusty, old piece between the MC and the caliper.
Old bugs were horrible for it but with 4 wheel drum you were glad for any brakes lol
That sounds ghastly. My old man had a '68 Beetle back in the day, but he loved that thing. I know he didn't like driving up and down mountains, that may have been why.
Good chance. I drove a ‘49 beetle......cable brakes. That’s right no wet brakes a series of cables to all 4 wheels couple that with like 25 hp and non synchronized transmission. Let’s just say that wasn’t a long drive.
Wow, that's primitive. I couldn't imagine. You couldn't pay me to get
out on the freeway in that thing.
I didn’t lol little side street.
So with a '49 beetle you saved enough on gas to buy a big block GM? Nice!
With a 49 beetle I could buy all kinda stuff there isn’t but a handful in the states. I didn’t own it I just took it for a burn.
