So I have recently started working on our car since my arthritis has subsided a bit. First I started on carb again and the fuel pick-up and the leak from overflow bottle. So it starts great now and has a decent idle from the carb I bought. Skipping to the issue which is the brakes. I went to move it out of the garage for the first time in almost 2 years and the brakes a dragging a lot. So I ran the car forward and back a few times and it got a bit better. I stopped before I screw up something else and cause more work. So any ideas on if its ok to run it up and down the driveway? If the brakes dont release more whats my course of action? I am doing like 5 things at once and the wife is totally laughing at me. I am pretty happy about how its running right now even though it doesnt go more then 15 feet.
I wanted to get it working 2 years ago. I even call Jay Leno to see if he would help. He called me back and told me how to fix the first thing on my list which was the fuel pump. I already knew how to do that, my issue was I could not move my hands very good nor hold on to a wrench. Anyway he must have too much money to help anyone. Damn the fuel pump was not that hard but really not fun.
yeah need to get those brakes free so I can drive it down the street lol.
Of course while I was doing all this stuff I also saw I need a new front seal since there was oil all over the front of the harmonic balancer. The HB will get replaced too since it looks like it was separating. Wife says to stop looking at it.
