In last week’s exciting episode, I left the Left-Handed Fargle-Snorker in suspense…or rather, suspended, waiting on brake parts.
Those I got. Sort of a sign of the times that the brake fluid, brake cleaner, wheel-bearing grease, and hand-cleaner needed for this job cost as much as the parts…but there ya go.
Nothing complex…other than there are two wheel cylinders on each wheel.
Installed the parts:
Installed the hub (the Big. Honkin. Heavy. Hub.):
And bolted the tire back on.
A quick brake bleed…well, not so quick actually…as apparently, with the twin wheel cylinders it seems to prevent me from using the mighty-vac to vacuum bleed them from the bottom…so a conventional bleed was necessary.
Thanks to my Dad for the help there. Pump-spew. Pump-spew. Pump-bubble-bubble-bubble-spew! (Ah HA!).
So…now that I could actually stop this 15,000 pound beast…it was time to get her started.
And started she needed to be. There was Fargle-Snorking to be done! (next post)
