Re: Center Mounted Parking Brake

I could swear that when I read this section last year that it referred to a separate independent system for the e-brake. That said, section 6.05 states exactly that, but only applies to busses, trucks and truck tractors. So I suppose that cars in BC are allowed to run a hydraulic e-brake grafted in...

Re: Center Mounted Parking Brake

This is my main issue. With the KA box mounted back so far, if I end up with a vertical brake handle, it will have to go in front of the gear shift. This is similar to the e-brake handle I ended up going with. I replaced the hydraulic cylinder with a Wilwood girling style unit with integral reservo...

I figured it was because the main server is in Baltimore. Haha!

Nice to be back up again.

Re: Center Mounted Parking Brake

Besides, I never liked that the stock e-brake handle is out of reach and essentially useless when wearing 4 point harnesses This is my main issue. With the KA box mounted back so far, if I end up with a vertical brake handle, it will have to go in front of the gear shift. This is similar to the e-b...

Re: Center Mounted Parking Brake

The letter of the law is going to almost always, if not always, require that the E-brake system be installed to function as a back-up system that is separate and independent from the primary braking system. Whether it is hydraulic or cable operated should be irrelevant. The E-brake should be availab...

Good work Greg! That was a ton of work over a short time frame. You must be very pleased to see it start coming together so quickly.

Re: Rota wheel dealers (Canada)

I did some snooping around and it looks like the closest re-seller (Rota partner) is Four Function Autosport in Kelowna. There is one in Calgary and Lethbridge also. I agree that is a good idea to find a local supplier that benefits from bulk shipping rates.

Re: red dime on BAT- showing L series is still Loved!

I agree that this was a very unusual auction indeed, and that it was a wet dream come true for the seller. WOW! I watched the auction daily, and then went back at the end and read all of the comments starting from the beginning. I am certain that the buyer did not see the car in person. He went as f...

Re: Devil in a red dress. 1970 2 door money whore!!

And now you are about to install JBC crossmember and rack. You have done a ton of work In a short time and its shaping up to be a really nice no- expense-spared car. Interested to see how the turbo install is going.

Re: Rack And Pinion exploration

It is going to depend on how lowered your car is, and what angle the LCAs are to the ground. Keep in mind that the inside mount for the LCA sits higher with the JBC cross member than the stock cross member. My car is not as low as some, and prior to the rack & pinion conversion my LCAs were exactly ...

Re: Rack And Pinion exploration

I just completed this same install, and went with the 2.9 OEM style rack. The multiplier equates to 2.436 in the car. I just a half hour ago moved the car for the first time since installing it. Out one driveway and into the next one, that's it. I have a primarily street "72 KA turbo car, and a slow...

Re: B210 brake booster install

I know that this has been suggested earlier, so may not be overly helpful now, but it sounds like you still have some air trapped in the system. On a recent non-510 car project I was working on I performed a 5 speed transmission swap and ended up also using a Tilton hydraulic throw out bearing. The ...
