    Worked on Zoeys ride yesterday. The brakes sorta worked.

    Decided to replace the rear wheel cylinders. Pass side had a snapped off bleeder figured it may be the cause trapping air in the wheel cylinder.84372527-8037-4203-B733-94ACBF93E2B60FB7D016-2F13-43DF-9476-73F62FF2CCD7E689FB7C-F66E-440B-93BC-C0180C1F0CAE915E956E-18AA-4565-A886-B64ED313B7CD

    Those helped but did not fix it all the way.  MC was the root cause. Fresh one in. Brakes work great!F7E324BA-5054-4EDB-85A1-B2020BB4723D

    Slipped the new speedo cable in and adjusted the front wheel bearings also. 1EBE4B01-A4EF-4BF3-B37D-5797AF00E85B

    We will build it if it comes.

    Made it home last night in Zoey’s bug. I had a vapor lock. Issue when I stopped in rifle for gas. I put in a few gallons and it would start. Fuel was bubbling in the filter. Took a 30 min smoke break and she fired up. Runs great pulled 60 uphill on the way home.

He said I need to cut a whole the size of a piece of bread so he can weld up a bracket that holds my shifter linkage thingy. I am like fuck this car gas carpet and seat well damm7A4243CE-E7B4-49E5-B652-1C991F4DD3D2D1F88E48-2952-4920-B78E-6D0A53E6C092B8C8BC4A-1ECA-4657-8CA7-E2AEA02A4F393DD41324-D9DA-4625-B3B7-E84DBF87594E8E03723A-6066-4BDF-8B20-88625284F7EBBFA18EA7-78FB-40D5-B8CC-467D77628944D247645E-AFE7-4790-B9AF-BC5DA48776EF500292E3-9C33-4D6D-8109-93DE11563BAD

    Nice work Jesse! Seems like every bug needs that job done at some point. Zoey has a sweet first car!

    We messed with the 30/31 pict 1 carburetor for a few hours yesterday. Setting float height and jets. Ended with a 60 idle, 130 main, 60 accl nozzle to get the 1776cc running sweet with the merged exhaust header. Probably the best engine combo for simplicity and power.

    Zoey really has great little car.

    Yup! Can’t wait to see her try to roll in a vintage VW instead of a lame ass normal cheap unbreakable Japanese automatic sedan!!! For Sure she wants that on her list of struggles learning to drive, live life, and growing up!!!! C’mon Jesse, call these dumb toys yours….. We love em but don’t give the Girl a burden….. Give her yer Truck and drive the Fun/Eclectic/ Stupid shit yourself!!!
