Yep.... they accidentally gave me these so instead of all the headache shipping then back, I figured I'd try them. Always hated them and this just reinforces it! Oh well.... if I can't make them seat correctly.... off they come in favor of the correct steel ones.

Cheers
Dave

----Understand why you used that set, but I always ask guys who actually choose stainless over steel if they are ever going to use their car in bad weather. The answer is always the same; OH NO, Never, its a "very special car"!!! If we are friends I then tell them that they just threw some money away as well as made problems for themselves. The steel lines (of course) will probably out last even the younger guys on this website......Bill S

Great progress Dave. The brake distribution valve(s) look like something from the wheel well of the 737 "A" system hydraulics. Hard to believe only one fitting sealed, but I'm not surprised. Also, thanks for confirming that your car bites back. I was looking for cold medicine the other day and found 4 one-half full boxes of band aids. Mostly used from car and home project accidents.

Anyway, your work looks great.

The biting will cease this weekend: steel brake lines just showed up so the stainless will come off and go in the recycle bin! Also, finished up the seats so now when the official brake bleeder (Kelly) goes for round two of "pump that pedal" she'll have a comfy place to sit!
Can't wait to drop this motor in next week!

Cheers
Dave

Moving right along with new steel lines in, and not one leak, I can call the brakes complete! The official "Brake Operator Of Bullitts", or "BOOBS" ... is the rightful first person to sit in the newly upholstered seats. She's such a trooper! Only a few parts left on the interior left to do, and that's have the headliner gut come out and do his thing. If I did it, I'd be laughed right out of the Stephen's Convention Center by a whole host of people! So... best to let someone else do it. I'll continue to screw up the other stuff

Engine ready to go in!

Cheers
Dave

So I used a combination of a few things to lift this Monitor turret up off the ground and guide it into the engine bay that's sized exactly 3/16th of an inch too big to allow it to fit. A 1500lb electric hoist, my 4-Post lift, the help of another set of hands, and several onlookers waiting for the (snap!) [KLUNK] "DANG IT!!". But luckily that last thing never happened I had to alter "Jigasaurus" to clear the air pipe on the drivers side, but I'm happy to report this thing worked flawlessly! Perfect angle... perfect clearance....and best of all.... easily removed after the engine is settled in.

It's getting closer! Shifter, clutch z-bar, and exhaust at the end of next week! Waiting on the fuel sender to come back, but I may use a temporary one just to get the car fired off.

Cheers
Dave
