Re: Master Cylinder Bracket

Ian, if the heads on the nuts are like in my sketch, right at and on the bump for the inboard one, then you're okay. From your pictures or the perspective of it, the rod centerline looks low

Re: Master Cylinder Bracket

PS This is what I did. The 2" X 4" TS has a spacer plate welded on back. The two plate design is very stiff and easier to make.

Re: Master Cylinder Bracket

Okay, here you go:


- This uses (5) existing center-section bolt hole in the vertical section

Re: Master Cylinder Bracket

Hi Guys,


The new revised bracket in post #19 is still not going to do it. I have an idea that is easier than what I did and will sketch something up this afternoon.

Re: Master Cylinder Bracket

Yes, I completely agree with you. Getting the highest ratio of (brake arm length)/(actuating lever length) is most important.

Re: Radiator neck pliers?

The Youtube link that Scott posted in message #18 is great. I like the use of the muffler clamp backer. I made this tool to make a "bump" for a trimmed SS radiator pipes using a very old pair of vice...

Re: Master Cylinder Bracket

Hi,


Yes, its all about mechanical advantage by having a longer lever, same as grabbing a breaker bar when you racket wrench just doesn't do it ;-)

Re: Master Cylinder Bracket

The bracket fab looks good but you have the master cylinder too low. You want to get the push rod as close to the bottom of the frame as possible so that your lever arm ratio to actuating arm is as...

Re: Radiator neck pliers?

Would a tail pipe expander work? It would be the insertion depth that I would wonder about.

Re: 32' Front Brake Lines

Routing looks fine. The front hose connections are well protected if you look at the spring, etc. ahead of it. Very little chance that the lines or hose would hit or scrape anything.
