Using a brake line that came (extra) with the car, I was able to pop the pistons out. They are NOT in good shape and will not be reused.
|Contraption used for finally popping out the pistons.|
|Cylinders...not pretty. After cleanup had lots of pits.|
As for the calipers....jury is still out and they are soaking overnight. I'm leaning towards no, but we'll see once I get them cleaned up.
|Clutch and brake pedal assemblies all done!|
I promised the boys I would take them fishing tomorrow, so I don't expect much work on the car. I don't have a job start date yet, though, so Monday should be a productive day. I want to get the pedals back in, get the accelerator pedal out, cleaned, primed and painted and then back in, too. All of this because, on Tuesday, I expect my box from SpitBits. I thought all of the goodness in this box may get me able to take the car around the block, but I think the brakes (and maybe the clutch slave cylinder) will prevent this. But, we'll see!
