It has taken a long time. Sat for a long time taking up space. Retired in 2016 so freed up some time.

Curtis,
I retire in 2016, but became a contractor since to get a few$ for this project.

What was I think?🤪

SRL237 is one step closer to being a driving car. I resolved the brake issues today. It has new masters, a new slave cylinder, rebuilt front calipers, new aftermarket rear wheel cylinders, new hoses and a handful of new hard brake lines. Using the pressure bleeder that I built, it is all working now. Clutch slave needs adjusting, but beyond that the hydraulics are done.

Me too ! The light flywheel has been on my "wish list" for a couple decades...I wish I could have could have done it sooner,...but I've finally made it to the party !...if there is any further interest from the forum, in my experience with this package, I will share more on the "Flywheel" threads.
Let me know...otherwise, Happy Roadstering !
