Got the prop valve from Inline tube, will let ya know if it is correct on Mon, mine had some rusty fluid inside, but should work if ya need it...65 for the valve from Inline

The reservoirs are not coated on the inside, but I have had good luck with their coating over the years. Don't think anything will hold up if soaked in brake fluid, but an occasional spill on it doesn't seem to affect it

Re: PO has me PO'd

FYI and way late, but the booster/mc combined are cheaper than seperately?? I bought a 3/4 ton dual diaphram booster and master {helps with the "hard" pedal most of us 4X4 guys get} for like $130 ready to bolt on at Autozone, and my NAPA price matches to Autozone, and or Checker, for a second FYI?? I hope it helps, but you already have your parts, so sorry for the day late help?! Looks good!

Re: PO has me PO'd

Thanks guys for the FYI, I noticed that when I bought the M/C, but eventually I will be goin' 3/4 ton. I have the system in the parts pile. Soooo, with that being said, I spent 32.00 on the rebuilt M/C...kit was 20.00, Maybe tomorrow the parts from Inline Tube will be here.

Thanks 70 Suburban for the heads up, I left the nuts on the studs loose to remind me something goes there...Post #879 shows this

These posts are whats great about this board...Like working under a microscope and 60,000 people lookin' thru the view finder, and I'm the petrie dish

Got my parts from JC and Tynee, Thanks Guys your the best. Also got a great lead on seat brackets for my utility buckets, more to follow

Re: PO has me PO'd

Well, apparently my In Line Tube order has been floating around Pa. between Lewisburg and Bethlehem for a week, wrong zip code. That's fixed, s/b here fri...

Placed an order for my front headlite harness from M&H, mods to include...Hi and Low beam relays, Alt. pass. side w/ SI hook up. I have to send my engine harness back so the can add a 12 volt source to it. Asked about why they use a pink wire instead of red, it turns out that pink indicates a keyed source as opposed to red which is a constant source of 12 volts, learn something new everyday

Thanks Tim, I keep going backwards, I'm supposed to be working on the motor. M&H should be sending my harnesses back next week. Maaco called me today, fenders are done, first time they stayed tacky so he had to redo them
