Remounted the brake pivot pin on the left rear backing plate. Original plate that prevents wheel cylinder piston from coming out of the cylinder had a tab that was bent. I was able to remove rear piston without removing cylinder. A good replacement plate was brazed in on Monday before we assembled the assembly.

Rebuilt right rear brake wheel cylinder due to leakage. Honed and cleaned housing, then installed rebuild kit. Pistons were cleaned and polished.

Decided to rebuild left rear brake wheel cylinder to ensure all was good. Found front piston was stuck. Removed piston with light tap. Honed and cleaned housing, then installed rebuild kit. Pistons were cleaned and polished.

They are now ready for installation again.

Morning session of working on More Door is over. Time for lunch.

Install both rear axle assemblies.

Hooked up ratchet strap to both rear shock mounts and snugged strap up. Loosened both control arms' bracket bolts on the differential and strap slackened. Tightened strap to ensure brackets were seated against differential. Torqued bracket horizontal bolts first, then the vertical bolts. That should fix the alignment difficulty Goodyear was having trying to align the car. We will see once I have it back on the road and in their shop for another check.

Installed both balanced drive shafts.

Installed right brake parts and line.

More to be done this afternoon.

Due to rain shelf building for the 40' container was stopped. I went back to work on the More Door and installed the left rear brakes.

Will inspect and hone/reseal front wheel cylinders tomorrow afternoon.

Pulled front wheels' brake cylinders for inspection and cleaning. Reason, these cylinders (and entire front brake package & hubs) were put on my Coupe 8 years ago, then removed for disc brake upgrade. Brake fluid never was introduced into the Couple's brake system after all its brake line work.

Nothing was found wrong with cylinder parts, but I did a hone on them and polished the pistons. I will install them tomorrow. Then I will address the improperly routed dual master brake lines. Photo shows the lines as currently installed. Not a good line routing. I will rout them like GM did on the 67 - 69 Vairs. All parts on hand.

AmMel: got those stumps removed today. That is why cylinders didn't get installed. I had a little shovel help from the neighbor.

Just finished reconfiguring MC lines in trunk reconfigured. Still need to cut and flare rear line, then connect to the added bulkhead fitting.

Headed out to drain Powerglide to replace the TV lever we repaired last year.

Removed powerglide pan and removed the repaired TV lever. I compared the 2 levers and found the repaired lever splines are about 5 degrees off from the replacement lever. May explain why engine jumps to 1000 rpm when selected to low from drive. Accerator rods are set up to the 66 Assembly Manual.

Also found reason for PG fluid leaking around bolts. The inner edge of pan cut the gasket, even though outside edge showed acceptable gasket compression. Edge of pan is bent down for some unknown reason. I have a replacement pan available, along with the pan reinforcement plate from Clark's. I purchased serrated head bolts of proper length. I did not like the slightly longer grade 5 bolts Clark's supplied with the reinforcement plate.

Donna replaced the wheel wheel trim screws. The ones in the car were so bad, the chrome was gone and rust was there. Wire buprshed. Them and they were black head screws.

Got to cold, windy, and raining to keep going. I covered transmission with a trash bad and tied it on to keep it in place.
