  • Buttercup gets a brake fluid reservoir

    This and the accelerator pedal is all that was accomplished today.
    Now my problem is, the nipples on the reservoir are 9mm and the nipples on the master cylinder are 13mm. Looks like I have some more fabricobbling to do.

    LOL. This phone knows me pretty well. I typed in 'fab' and fabricobbling pops up.

ID:	1844849 Looking at this picture, I see I have a wire clamp that's a little askew. I gotta fix that. The judges might dock me a couple points for that. As if I'm ever going to have Buttercup judged. NO way, no how.

    Jerry, you are a wealth of great ideas, some of which I have copied...on my junk. So please tell what donated this reservoir. About your 'fabricobbling'...that needs to entered into Websters. One day I told Mrs. Junior about your term. Just this past weekend I bought an unused metal chopsaw from a garage sale that didn't work...when Mrs. Junior saw it after work she said that no doubt I'd fabricobble something and have it humming in no time at all. She obviously 'gets it'. cheers, Junior

      Thanks.
      Late model VW Beetle. I mean the early late model. Like maybe the 70's.

      Like I've said before, I've never had an original thought in my head. I've stolen everything from someone else. I got this one from AVE on YouTube. He's a riot.

      Yes it's nice to be matched up with someone that 'gets it'.
      If it wasn't for Deby (the wife unit) pushing me to buy Buttercup I wouldn't have bought him, or she or it whichever descriptor you may want to use for an inanimate object.

            Websters just added "irregardless" to their lexicon of acceptable words.
            I won't use it regardless.

              I fixed the picture. Yes I had the phone laying on the floor when I took the original picture and it was a selfie. I'll get you the MC info as soon as I get Imgur working.

              Edit...... Well, I couldn't get Imgur to work. But here's a picture I have on Postimage of the MC (same type) on Leo. BTW, it's a 1" bore.

                Thanks, that's the same m/c I installed in my car, in fact I'm pretty sure I got the idea in the first place from you. My coupe, with Turner front brakes and s10 Chevy rear brakes takes an excessive amount of leg pressure to stop. I was thinking about going to a smaller bore size. I'll get around to it one day. When Buttercup gets on the road give some feedback on how it stops with this m/c. cheers, Junior
