    Just a reminder to those of you in SW Ontario- The Unfinished Nationals will be at the Paris Fairgrounds this Sunday 8am-5pm.
    Should be a good show. I'd be there in my 54 if the damn thing had decent brakes...:mad:

    Not so much that it isn't finished, it just doesn't stop...and I'm about 30 miles away. I'm going to plug away on it this weekend-everything but the shoes is new-master cyl, lines, wheel cylinders, flex hoses. I have a rock hard pedal standing still, but it goes to the floor and hardly stops when moving. Any suggestions? I'll try bleeding them again first.

    If the master cylinder is new, did you start bleeding at the M/C then at the wheel cylinders?Try loosening the lines at the M/C while someone pushes down on the brake pedal.Then close before they lift. watch for little busts of air.( Basic stuff not sure what your expertise is just, throwing out ideas). Make sure the Brakes are properly adjusted.Then try bleeding at the wheel cylinders again.
    Hope this helps
    You say you 30 miles away....is that from Paris or from Sarnia?

    I'm glad someone posted up the car show. I pre-registered about a month ago at the Virgil swap meet. There's about a 1/2 dozen of us from the Niagara area that plan on going - rain or shine. Even if it rains, flat black sure looks pretty when wet!

    I'm glad someone brought this post up to the top... I'll be up there in my '62 Ford Fairlane with a whole bunch of people from the Niagara region - look for the "Jantzi Motors" car!

    Thanks!
