Delivery Day

Unloading our new Factory Five 818-S kit car off the truck after its long haul from Massachusetts to Georgia. And the project begins!!!

Brake Lines and Fluid Hoses

Mike connected the brake/clutch cylinders to the triple reservoir tank with the new fluid lines. He also ran brake lines from the cylinders to the front brakes, but when he tested them out he found that there were leaks at the wheel ends. So, that will need to be addressed and tinkered with a little bit more.

Triple Brake Reservoir

Mike decided to upgrade the plastic brake/clutch reservoirs to a fancy new chrome (big surprise) triple reservoir unit from Scott’s Hotrods. He had to mount it to the top front frame, a short distance from the brake/clutch cylinders, so he’ll need to add new fluid lines to connect them together. He had a little concern that it would touch the top of the hood since it sits so high up, but he checked it out and there’s enough clearance, so we’re good to go!
