    '67 Monaco master brake cylinder questions

    Well, unless my car was plumbed wrong as some point in the past, the rear chamber (which is larger than the forward chamber) is plumbed to the front brakes. Maybe it was my imagination, but while bleeding the new MC (clear tubing from the ports circling back into their respective chamber) I was...

    '67 Monaco master brake cylinder questions

    Transmission was down 2 quarts from full, did not engage when in gear. Car was driven into the storage unit when parked 23 years ago. I'm guessing this unit would get very hot inside in the summer heat (these are single-story, shingled roof). There are several stains on the floor, under the...

    '67 Monaco master brake cylinder questions

    Yea, but I see no leak at the output shaft seal. It's bone dry. Something has been leaking from this area, there's a wet stain on the floor under this area.

    '67 Monaco master brake cylinder questions

    Ok, so I put 1 liter jug (I think actually 946 ml) of ATF in, knowing I'm down probably more than that. Then started the engine, went through the gears. The car will now move when in gear. Let it warm up (no idea if the ATF gets warm, or is supposed to get warm or hot, but engine is now...

    '67 Monaco master brake cylinder questions

    Based on what I've seen doing searches, lots of people use and love the type F in the 727. Say it gives more solid shifts. One comment was that type F has no friction modifiers. Have not seen any comment saying type F is bad for a 727. My only other choice would have been ATF +4 (which I...

    '67 Monaco master brake cylinder questions

    Tonight I asked my dad about the transmission work. He noticed that some sort of boot at the rear of the transmission wasn't there and asked them whats with that. They - or as my dad put it - 'the dumb shts' - told him that 'well its best to leave it out to allow for drainage of any...

    '67 Monaco master brake cylinder questions

    I just seemed to remember, way back, when working on brakes, that I'd get a hard pedal but then first time with the engine running I'd press the pedal and it would go way down, then I'd pump it once or twice more and i'd be right up there, rock solid. Didn't happen today. Started it up...

    '67 Monaco master brake cylinder questions

    Ok, so the new MC is on. Before I changed it, I was trying to bleed the front brakes, but wasn't getting anything out of the passenger side. Before hooking up the new MC I tried blowing compressed air through that front line with the bleed screw out, but air would not flow. Long story short...

    '67 Monaco master brake cylinder questions

    The die inserts are not marked, but there are 5 of them, so I could have / should have assumed that the smallest one was for the smallest pipe, which is 3/16 (instead I grabbed the die for the 1/4 pipe, because the pin almost fit, so I made it fit. It just didn't make sense to me that the pins...

    '67 Monaco master brake cylinder questions

    Yea well I'm sure that $500 worth of flaring tools helps. I went out and bought some of that copper-nickel brake line. It is way more flexible than steel, but seems just as hard to cut with a hacksaw. It is easier to flare with my dime-store flaring tool, but not a lot easier. Satisfactory...

    '67 Monaco master brake cylinder questions

    As was suggested, I'm going to re-use one of the fittings (the larger one that screws into the MBC). Can someone tell me why they used different thread size on the same line? I have some pre-made sections of brake line, with same fitting on both ends, either one will fit on the distribution...

    '67 Monaco master brake cylinder questions

    I bought the Napa 36221 master cylinder. It came with a small rubber bellows shield just like what I see on-line for the Raybestos MC36221 and even the yellow plastic port inserts. For what it's worth, this is marked on the box in several places as a "new" MBC, not rebuilt. Here it is...

    '67 Monaco master brake cylinder questions

    The car had been sitting for 20 years in storage, it might have lost most of the rear reservoir before I put it in storage. I filled the rear reserviour but the level doesn't drop when I open the front brake bleed screws. There is brake fluid weeping out of a hole on the lower mounting face of...

    '67 Monaco master brake cylinder questions

    Ok, I just checked rockauto and rock shows the exact same list of master cylinders for '67 monaco with 383 and '67 polara with 383 and 318. The master cylinder I can get locally is a "blue streak" 36221 (Napa). If I do a web-search that it appears that it might be the same as a Raybestos...

    '67 Monaco master brake cylinder questions

    An observation I see on rockauto and any local parts supplier is that the base engine for the '67 Monaco is a 383 but my car (bought new by my dad) came with 318 polysphere (which I replaced later to an LA). Now, the engine shouldn't matter when it comes to the master brake cylinder- right...

    '67 Monaco rear differential fluid change (is there a drain plug?)

    Alright, so if those are US pints, then 4.4 pints is almost exactly 2 liters. If I get this car on the road for a few short drives in the next week or so, before I put it back into storage I'll rig up something better to empty it and refill with new stuff.

    '67 Monaco rear differential fluid change (is there a drain plug?)

    Ok, here are some pics: If it's needed for identification, I can try to figure out the numbers stamped on the driver's side. I was able to get the plug off by putting a bottle jack under the wrench. I don't think I (or my dad) ever touched the diff fluid. I used a hand suction pump to pull...

    '67 Monaco rear differential fluid change (is there a drain plug?)

    I don't see a drain plug, at least looking from the back side. Haven't been all the way under to look from the front. Is there a drain plug? I'm assuming if I manage to drain it, that regular 90 weight gear oil is what it takes?
