Re: radiator hose replacement

ALL I can say is make sure the surface is clean, no dents or deformity and the hose fits snug not over size or too big. I like wire clamps if I can find them as opposed to band type. Are you sure it is not leaking out the radiator neck/brazed joint? It may look like the hose but may have A small hai...

Looks like 1/8 or 1/16 hair pin clip. A good "ACE" hardware store would have that. Mark

Re: Brake Line / Fluid

Dan; I will look into the check valve system. My Honda Valkyrie has them in place of the cylinder bleeders and they work great. I rigged a hose and a funnel to fill the master when I changed the front wheel cylinders before the Carlisle trip and momma pumped the brakes. I figured it was the farthest...

They are wrong, 59 is different. The rear axle breather tube location that bolts down the brass y is closer to the axle pump...

Re: Brake Line / Fluid

Going to order the lines next week and post how it goes. I will go to D.O.T.# 5 when it gets back together. S...

Brake Line / Fluid

Late summer I began to have the right front brake grab (spike) with little effort to the pedal. Then I just lately noticed my right rear began to brake very little if at all when jacked up off the floor. I am going to replace the entire brake lines and change the fluid out to D.O.T. #5 AS I am curre...
