November 24, 2006 - Now comes the brake project. The master cylinder is shot, both rear wheel cylinders are shot, the springs inside the drum are shot, and the shoes are almost gone.
This weekend mission: Brake job!
The temporary roof over the car. Rain is forcasted.
The first drum is removed. It does not look pretty.
A broken spring that just gave up.
Another shot of an ugly brake drum innards.
The passenger side. At least there were no broken springs.
Another shot showing the hardware.
And yet another shot.
The back side of the plate showing the brake line, bleeder valve,
and the two bolts that hold the wheel cylinder.
New hardware installed.
And a new master cylinder is installed.
