|This is from the control valve--there's also a leak from the pump.|
|Apparently, it is difficult to get the combination of stainless steel brake lines and silicone (synthetic) brake fluid to form a good seal.|
And finally there's the clutch; the clutch point is on the floor.
I've decided that I pick one of these at a time and resolve it. The easiest of these seemed like the clutch. Since the adjustment rod was tightened as far as it would go, I removed it, clamped it in my vise and took a die to it, adding a few extra threads.
|A bit more adjustment--just what I needed.|
Originally, the car was equipped with a floor mounted starter switch. It was sort of a safety feature--you had to depress the clutch to start the car. It dawned on me that the clutch was never designed to go all the way to the floor. So tonight I went to my collection of labeled baggies, pulled out the old starter switch, found the little tang that fit under the cltuch pedal to activate it, and installed them.
|The clutch range is now limited.|
I'm thinking the other two won't be so easy to fix--but at least there are only two remaining.
