  • Re: Plastic Fantastic tew

    so most of the day was spent on stuff like painting deck rails and mowing my dirt bike track.... however, things were accomplished
    soft lines for the efi





    I really need to set this back on the frame and actually bolt it down... so some pads needed anti-rust protection



    also opened up the steering shaft area

    and a touch of black to keep the rust worm away

          through the forest, up the trail to the creek, across the road (big air), around the house, back down the backside, back into the woods.. nothing but net

              bad decisions come with carriers (and was a distraction, thus why it's here)


              anyway,
              did this

                  and then I had a few minutes to work on this


                  sleeved the inlet so the hose fits

                  and there we go

                  next up....

                    so this is happening... maybe... I may have messed up the threads so made more work for myself


                    anyway, I pushed it off to the side for a moment because I'm not having luck finding a 2 into 1 brake line T. I need 1/4" line flared into 2 3/16" line fitting.... all I've found is either soft line (regular thread not pipe thread) into 2 3/16 flare fittings.... I could machine it, but in a last ditch effort, I figured I'd ask here.... part number and/or link would be cool ... thx.

                    Once the fitting is found, I can finish the brake lines and get the body back onto the chassis then push to the end.... but for now, I'm stumped.

                      ..... 2 into 1 brake line T. I need 1/4" line flared into 2 3/16" line fitting....

                      im usually really good at this stuff--my googlefu is strong- but the closest ive seen
                      is a 3 way all 3/16 T...maybe that plus an adaptor on the 1/4 side?

                        IIRC old pickups (we're talking early 50's type stuff) used a 1/4 T on the rears, so again, adapters needed.

                          So far, the closest I've found is 1/4" on all 3 sides - which require reducers.

                          The issue with pickup Tees is they usually have a hose to one side - which is a different fitting... ask me how I know this....
