    Me and the Meadowbrook

    Me and the Meadowbrook

    July 14: Finally got around to replacing that damn leaking brake line. So the new line is fine, but now the master cylinder leaks. I need some help with this fellas. The 2 lines go into the master cylinder through that huge brass bolt that faces the rear of the car. Its 1 1/2 inches (I measured with my caliper because I ended up buying a crescent wrench large enough to fit on it), and I tightened it down. It leaked less, but there's NO way I can get it any tighter. I'm assuming the gasket is shot, otherwise why in the hell would it leak? So here's my question: can I remove the lines, and then that bolt and replace the gasket? Or will the removal of that bolt spill the guts of the master cylinder? Is that whole mess spring loaded behind that bolt? I'm super frustrated with this as I was hoping to get the car back on the road today, only to be set back once again. I feel the summer slipping by and it makes me sick to my stomach. Please help me out if you can fellas. Thanks a bunch.

    July 2: I installed the new master cylinder and hooked all the linkage up. Ran into some snags like always, but got it all together. Thought I had it made but then realized the upper line coming out of the master cylinder leaks. I’ll be back under there tomorrow night. Man, I’m way behind schedule....
  5. That PW that was shown earlier. I had a 56 C-3 in the mid 90s. What a fool I was to sell it.
  6. Wife and I were there that Saturday. Didn’t take the Meadowbrook because I still haven’t finished installing the new master cylinder. Here’s a 52 Coronet I thought was nice.

    1949 New Yorker...Worth Parting Out?

    If it was me Keith, I’d snag that thing, start taking things off the engine, clean em up and ebay them starting at $1 each, no reserve. You’ll get your bidding wars that way. Its when you list the manifold for a buy it now of $500 that your sale turns cold.

    June 13: Finally got around to taking the master cylinder out. Wasn’t too terrible (like some of you mentioned) except for the lines were pretty much already stripped and I had to crack them loose with a vice grip. Developed a nice migraine in the process, so I’ll put the new one in tomorrow. Do I have to bench bleed the new one?

    5-30-18: Well, I was attempting to get the car ready for Mopars in the Park in Farmington, MN this weekend but ran into a snag. I think my master cylinder took a sh*t. After bleeding my brakes again I took it out for a cruise and had a little bit of brakes on my way out, then on my way back the pedal went all the way to the floor and wouldn't pump up at all. Good thing my e-brake works good, but it was still scary. Master cyl is full of fluid, no leaks underneath. I believe its been on the fritz for a while. I should've changed it when I had the engine and tranny out last year; it would've been a lot easier. I've never changed out a master cyl that's under the floor boards before, and well, it ain't gonna happen before we go to Mopars in the Park. Sometimes I wish some of you guys were closer, I would at least ask for some help. I have a feeling its going to be a terrible bugger to swap in the new one. Kinda pissed right now. 😠

    I would just buy a new replacement. Those old ones may have quit drawing fuel decades ago, who knows?
