Bummer. Are you able to get new prebent/flared lines? It'd be less than $250.

Ummm, I think that's it. Today I bleed the brakes. Then I think it's just an oil changes left before I drop her to the ground again!

That's a busy weekend lol. It looks good under your car

Yeah, best to not cut corners on brakes. A cool car is great until you can't stop.

I know! Everything looks awesome under there except for that crappy exhaust. It's on the to-do list, but my first concern was safety/driveability....and it's getting there.

Speak of the devil, just bled the brakes and there is a weep where the rear line hooks into the rear pressure valve. I had to use an adapter, and I'm hoping I didn't over tighten. I'll replace the adapter, and if that doesn't do it, I'll probably have to replace the pressure valve. Damn.

Yeah, I'm hoping I'm not screwing too much up. This is my first mustang, and first classic, but I've kept plenty of DDs on the roads for years. I'm trying to do as much research as possible as I go along and I'm trying not to rush things.

Probably a good call. I know mine could use them, not rusted thru by any means, but not in great shape. But my plan is to get her up and running well, then down the road put some real effort into her - floor pans, minor body work, a respray, etc. but until then I want to be able to drive her around while I build up my allowance (I only bought her over the summer, so I'm a little tapped on cash for a little bit).

Well at least you know you've got backup brakes if they ever fail - just be sure to wear boots.

I think (hope) I got my weeping brake line all sealed up. Also drained my oil - I'll pick up a new filter and dino juice tomorrow perhaps.

Changed the oil (whatever was in there was really old and nasty, at least there was 5qts worth, so that's good).
Got the brakes bled, and got her rear back on the ground.
Now I just need to get a shorter alternator belt and turn my fan the right way, and I SHOULD be good to try to start her back up!

SHE LIVES!!!

After cranking for what felt like forever waiting for the new fuel line and filter to fill, she finally was trying to catch. After a quick carb adjust, she started right up. Then after an idle adjust, she was purring. I'm so fricking excited!

I still have to adjust rear brakes and torque the leaf spring bolts to spec, so I didn't take her out - I only had a couple hours in the garage today. But the engine sounds sooo much happier than when I first bought her.

Hopefully I'll find time this week to get her back on all fours, but it probably won't be until the weekend.
