#52. Braided Stainless steel brake hoses installation.

Rate this Entry
The old rubber hoses appeared in good shape.
But I got a good price on the 3 stainless steel hoses from TRF, and the upgrade is suppose to enhance brake performance.
(since I've done quite a bit to make the 3A run faster, and handle better,
i figured I better improve her braking too.)

while I waited for the hoses to be delivered from back order. ( about 6 weeks, I think).
i took advantage of the time to spray the connections with PB Blaster several times.
(no problem disconnecting.)

the Goodridge braided stainless steel hoses are top shelf. Very well made. They fit perfectly.

    Braking is as good or better.
    i bled the clutch line again.
    saw no crude. The clutch is working well, but it does catch 1st gear kind of early....not sure what to make of that, until I talk to some of my local club members.
