jmurray:  I will call.  I bet they can walk me through whats needed.  I got the impression I would need to buy accessories on the side.  For the most part, were the runs to the rear 'long tubes', or did you get a bunch of sections?  I know I probably not asking that correctly but I saw some kits for other year cars came 2 ways, many runs vs less runs.  Thanks and Merry Christmas

That's somewhat odd.... I bought brake lines from Inline Tube for my 79 which is not listed on their site either.  Although I did physically go to their shop to get them.  I would call them and find out for sure.  I can tell you that the kit does not come with clips, or screws but they can also be purchased as a kit.  Also the set is 7 pieces for disc/drum brakes I believe.

To my recollection, there are 7 peices in the set.  1 long line from prop valve in the front to the axle in the rear. 2 lines, one for each rear brake. From dist. block on axle to blake cylinder in rear.  2 front brake lines 1 for each side from prop valve in front to frame bracket where they meet the rubber line to each caliper (rubber lines not included, but available) then lastly 2 lines from master cylinder to prop valve.  Again, clips and screw are not included, but are also available.  I believe when Inline ships them, they put a fairly good radius bend in the long line to box it up.  As I said, I went right to their office to buy the parts first hand and they were straight, but I have that luxury of working right down the street from the place.

Thanks. I'll do that. I guess the classic car insurance company would have someone to do the appraisal.  I'll find out. I will be calling Hagerty today.

DriveTrain / Re: Strong smell of gas

Wow. Ok guys. When the car stalled I went to the tank and removed the cap and no there wasn't any pressure build up. It still has the canister and it appears to be hooked up properly. As for the smell it has dissipated and not present anymore. I believe like somebody mentioned the tank may have a small leak of some sort that only when the tank is full is evident. As for the stalling part, carburetor is being gone thru and the first thing I see when pulled is the presence of excessive fuel around the top of the body. Also found that whoever in the past didn't find the need for a fuel filter so trash is at the least partially to blame for the problem of fuel delivery.

If the car still has all its original fuel line rubber connector hoses around and on the gas tank, you should really drop the tank and install new ones. At this point some will be likely cracked and won't be long before leaking. The ethanol in our gas makes them deteriorate. They can actually be cracked, but not to the point of dripping, but still cause gas smell. They can even suck air through cracks, interrupting the fuel flow, causing you to effectively run out of gas even when you have gas.

Holiday Inn is taking reservations.  Just made mine on Friday.  If I remember last years rates right, this years show rate has dropped.

I posted this over a year ago and Norwood thinks I just listed it :) I am still in the market for the correct dated piece. Any and all help is appreciated.


Looks to me like it was posted on 12/5/14.....  Brew when you have time please post an example picture of the date code and its breakdown.  Thanks
