I dont believe the fuel line would work in my application. I am running a ford Y block fuel pump that has an integrated vacuum pump to run the wipers since I did the Olds oil pump conversion

When it comes to the brake hoses and cylinders:

Right rear: WC9026 - 84-87 Dodge Ram Chager right rear

Left Rear: WC9025 - 84-87 Dodge Ram Charger left rear

Left Front: WC18290 - 50-56 Ford Country Squire Left front

Right Fron: WC18291 - 50-56 Ford Country SQUIRE Right front

I used the same brake hoses front and rear. I believe one of them should be shorter than the other, but the lengths and fitting ends seem to work okay:

Brake hose: BH11146 - 72-73 Jeep Wagoneer front

I was able to button up a couple things this past weekend:

I was able to install the front wheel seals and set the preload on the front bearings. I Got the harmonic balancer installed again, I just need to paint the a/c pulleys before all that gets torqued down. I got the fuel fittings selected to plump up the thunderbird fuel pump, I got the crankcase ventilation tube installed, oil sending unit installed and wired up. Got the temp sending unit wired up. I got the carb installed and the linkage attached. I got the rear parking brake cable installed and only the front one on partially. I didnt have the adjustment mount that connects the cable to the equalizer lever, I was able to source that from Max Merrit.

Drill or pull out the rivets and replace with little brass screws and nuts. Done. The OD relay I repaired on my '51 for the '99 Centennial is still AOK. Not so sure about the cube relay.


Ross,

Do I need to insulate either of the screws once I drill out the rivets on the overdrive relay? Or is everything okay to just replace with screws and I am good to go?
