    Can we get a good Windshield Gasket?

    I used the Steele gasket, pricey but seems to work well (4 or 5 years) and fits correctly. Also file the pinch weld to remove any snags that can damage the gasket during installation. Most gaskets require some sealant to complete the job.

    Disc brake conversion issue

    The MC johnsartain referenced with the yellow cap is correct. I pulled the proportioning valve off the junkyard donor and it mounts under the MC but everything is kinda tight. I have disc on front as the donor did also. Will post photo soon.
