[QUOTE=Randy in ca;2055360]This would seem to infer that you also consider yourself to be a wise man.

Or could it be as you also stated:

“Great minds think alike, fools seldom differ" [/QUOTE

I do indeed consider myself a wise man, thank you.

Kevin in NJ, replace your fluid with DOT-5. We did that in 1982 with the LAPD cars, and saved a ton of money on maintenance.

Hello my Model A was also converted to hydraulic brakes that would lock up , I found as mentioned in a previous post that the master cylinder didn’t have enough free play in it . It is mounted on battery box ,think it’s a Boling conversion.

Golly gosh,

He said " It has brand new wheel cylinders, master cylinder, shoes, drums, and hardware."

and some of the advice is to chuck it, and get some rusty worn out mechanical brake bits and start from scratch.

Is that wise?
