Re: Major brake adjustment procedure request

Re: Major brake adjustment procedure request

Thanks, HDOWSE! That's just what the doctor ordered. I'll now plow ahead with this car.

Here are the photos I took a little while ago of the master cylinder and pedal placement.

Re: Hydraulic brake questions - 1932 Coupe
