After this keep your foot on the brake and start the car, you should feel the brake pedal being pulled in by the brake booster, sign that booster is working but not indication if it's leaking vacuum or not

Re: How to explain to my wife...

Welcome Ruan With regards to the first part of your question, it seems you already have better excuses than I do. I bought mine when I was still a bachelor. With regard to the correlation between age and reliability: Firstly, on an old car there will be niggles. Little things that need to be fiddled...

Re: Brake pedal feel different on first brake application

Just remember to bleed them in the correct order. Will need to check the manual on this, so I will confirm later. But I seem to recall the order is: 1: load sensor switch (above back diff). 2: left back. 3: right back. 4: left front. 5: right front. As I said, that is the order I remember, but my m...

Tires are a very personal choice. I suspect there is in reality very little difference between the performance of AT's and MT's. MT's look better, but are also markedly worse on the road, especially in terms of noise and vibration. I don't know what your primary use is, but I have some idea of what ...

Re: Free wheel hub mod

You have not shown us what they look like externally, so I don't know whether yours are the standard ones, but the standard ones don't use a spacer like the one you show. It could be that the splines don't fi...
