Interesting on the block, bell housing and intake are black, exhaust has no paint on it, and head is silver.  Used Rustoleum heat resistant silver BBQ paint for the head I did a couple years ago and has held up well.

Thanks, I find it very ironic that it's the same issue as before it was rebuilt...I'm going to wait for my new outer axle seal to arrive, reinstall everything and bleed the brakes.  One more chance and then send back if needed.  I also have a couple other wheel cylinders that I may send to have rebuilt as well for future use if needed.


General Discussion / Leaking Wheel Cylinder Question
« on: November 21, 2017, 04:24:49 PM »

I had my wheel cylinders re-sleeved and brake shoes relined last year and things have been good.  I decided to mainly do this at the time since my right rear cylinder would occasionally leak and I would just put a new rebuild kit to fix it.  I did this a couple times over the years before having all wheel cylinders re-done last year.

I've taken the car to a few shows over the past few weeks and have driven it a lot.  When I looked in the garage the other day, I noticed some brake fluid on the floor and it was the right rear!  Coincidental?  Ironic?  I don't know...I replaced the rear boot/cap (where it would always leak) since it looked "swollen".  The new boot is more snug, but I think there could be another issue.

I find it strange that it's the same wheel as before I had all this there anything else I should be looking at?  Rear brake shoe position?

For what it's worth, the company who did the work (Brake and Equipment Warehouse in Minnesota) said they would take care of it no problem if I wanted them to re-do it.

Thanks for sharing!  Also looking for a better way to share pics since Photobucket is now charging $$$.

I have a Carter RT-08 as well on my '29 Roadster that I believe is original to the car.

Only around town and back roads for me in the '29...I avoid the highways.

General Discussion / Photo Sharing - Uploading Pics
« on: October 25, 2017, 03:34:44 PM »
Just a quick question...what photo sharing/hosting site is everyone using to share and upload pics here?  I used to use Photobucket, which was free, but now they want $600/year to use their service.  I know there are several free sites out there, but want to see what you guys are using or how you're posting pics.

We were pretty lucky compared to most...since the storm moved somewhat further west, we just had the wind/wind gusts and a lot of rain.  No flooding, but didn't expect that since we're not in a flood zone.  Other parts of the Jacksonville area had more damage and flooding.

I lost 20 shingles off my roof, which I've already replaced/repaired myself.  Of course, the cars were fine  :D

Thanks for asking...
