added protective fire sleeves around the parking brake cable on both sides to protect from chafing and from the heat from the exhaust headers.
Secured the parking brake cable to the A-arm with stainless steel zip ties (protected the arm first with electric tape then a rubber grommet, then the zip ties )

clearance to the half shaft is well over 1/2” and the cable is absolutely secure!

for securing the hydraulic line I drilled and taped a M5 hole in the webbing of the A-arm and used a clamp that allows movement….

And I got brake pressure and no leak!

the pedal is getting hard is about 1 3/4 maybe 2 inches rock solid..

i’m sure I got some air trapped somewhere… Being one man show so…

I’ll give it another go tomorrow.

but all in all , I’m very very happy not bad at all!

Oh… did I mention that the parking brake actually is holding the car! I can torque the wheels with the wheel in the air, and it does not move at all!

Lemans850, those screw-on plastic master cylinder caps always crack from tension at the first thread unless you leave them loose... and then they leak. The caps can sometimes be found in wrecking yards on old Volvos, FIATS, some Brit cars but they're always suspect after all this time.

If you want to fix the cracking forever, go to <pegasusautoracing.com> in WI)  and get their ALUMINUM cap (pn 3549). Fits perfectly and could be painted black if the as-cast look is a problem. I put mine on 30 yrs ago & so far zero problems.
