    Hello
    Understand what you mean.
    I have had this hand brake system two of my hot rods. Good springs inside of backing plates (cable springs), right adjusted shoes and this brake is working fine. Im not make any "handbrake U-turns" with my hot rod. Only use handbrake when parking and God Bless, we do not have here same kind of hills and mountings like for example in SF, Norway, Austria,....

    The 2 bolt master used in the Lacys' kit is from 1962-66 full size Chev passenger, 63-66 ChevyII and Chevelle and a handful of Buick/Olds/Pontiacs from the same year range. It was produced in both 7/8" and 1" bore sizes depending on whether or not the car had metallic shoes and/or power assist. For example, the Dorman numbers are M40000 for the 1" bore and M36242 for the 7/8" bore.

    IMG_4965d.jpg Fuel lines made. Few pics included.

    I increase here this Mcculloch supercharger oil pressure question picture. I have try to find out where oil pressure must install and what is bypass, but not good result. All pictures I have found from internet are not took so that I can see how tubes are going there. Two will tell all that, but those are so small that cant make those bigger....¨
    M-39, M-40 info is wellcome or if You have McCulloch in Your hot rod , please, take good picture and share it.

    off topic, but my own thread, so doesn´t matter:

    Italmeccanica engine is rebuilt and this week I can continue working with roadster Project.

    Powerful engine, but I had problems with head studs. Never blow out head gaskets, but too many "soft" studs.
    I piece engine after used it all last summer. Now I have plugged total 30 thread/hole and made new holes middle of plugs + 7/16" threads. After that I plane decs straight and test moment all up to 90lbs.

    Nearly 100hours job, but hope it´s worth. IMG_4984b.jpg IMG_4983b.jpg

    Why did you not use King Serts they are larger than Helicoils and we use them in our midget motor and have not had any problem with them. They are basically the same as you did, but you don't have to drill and tap them once installed.

    Sorry about my spelling auto correct got me. At least you found them, French Grimes put me on them at the Chili Bowl.
    French Grimes is known for starting Race Saver the 305 sprint car series , also his ignition work and fuel injection work is well known in sprint and NASCAR . Super smart man. Did a lot of work with Brodix also.

    Sorry, I didn´t know about those King serts. Maybe somebody import those to Finland, but I didnt knew those products. So,...I decided to make those 3/4" UNC thread plugs (cut bolts and glue using Loctite 270), new hole middle of plug and new 7/16UNC thread. Works, but takes time to make all.

    "professional" (poor!) painting room is slowly grow up to my property. I still have one old 3meter x 6meter pit tent left. Not so good condition, but ok for me. Tarpaulin walls and it´s ready. I paint all primer, epoxy and filler in tent and only final 2K paint in my friends paintshop.

    Save time and money,....this is hot rodding.

    Thanks, good info. I will use that steering box in my 5w coupe Project. I remove shaft from gear and cut it shorter from that end.

    I have in my grey coupe very long steering shaft/tube (F1). I have moved seat 3-4inc back. Not easy to go in and out, but very good to drive long trip....

    1243b.jpg Thank You. Last days I have been lazy. Poorman´s paintingroom is ready another side of my yard.
    Cant begin to paint because nights and days are too cold. Normally this time year "thermic spring" is normal, but now we have extra much snow and cold...... Tent is warm very easily if outside is around zero decrees celcius, but if its minus 6dec like today (sunny but cold), there is not enough warm inside tent.
    Today empty frame and lifted up engine/tranny to wait final installation.

    Tomorrow need to weld frame, make some holes and after that I all are ready for painting.
    Frame and body same colour, old style Basic acryl.

    two days business trip. Dayjob is delay my hobby....not good . no.

    Days are sunny and warm, but still too much snow. Normally this time year we do not have snow at all..... Pro paintingroom is very good. Chip Foose would be happy to have painting room like that when they built those "bling bling" cars.

    Today I painted epoxy primer and filler (wet + wet) some parts.
    Also washed body (surface cleaner). Tomorrow I paint body, fuel tank and doors.

    I bought from here HamB some velocity stacks (seller has ad. in "parts for sale").
    Good aluminum and low price. I fixed 1hour those and now looks good when sit on carbs.
