    they don't have a very high standard to be better than. The C3 brakes are terrible. They work fine when they work, but they are renown for leaking.

    And even so, price a pair of quality rebuilt C3 brakes.... these aren't that much more money, and since these cars sit, a lot, the stock brakes will start leaking in 5 years. These won't because of the material they're made of.

    Not too long......that piston has to return all the way to uncover the internal ports. If the rod does not have just a touch of free play it's too long.

    Cut it long.. Make the part that rides on the piston smooth.. Not hard to do at all..

    So I got the brake lines connected - but not bled, I'll have to have a friend come by tomorrow to finish that task....

    first... length of the rod on the booster


    I should probably hold the camera steadier... but everyone's seen a non-power master cylinder

    I hope so, I've already missed one, and another one tomorrow.

    so, time to fix yet another issue - the brakes. I'm tired of the "will I have enough vacuum or not" issue with the motor; so I'm putting manual brakes on the car



    so I have to clear a hole


    now is the time I mention I'm really getting tired of trying to fit my 210 lb chassis in the footwell

    anyway

    here's where I stopped

    an adapter to eliminate the booster.... tomorrow, brake lines
