Thread: Progress on the flathead V-8 Bronco

  1. #1

    Progress on the flathead V-8 Bronco

    Getting soooo close....yet it seems like it takes forever.

    Hydroboost brake system installed...coolant hoses on...a bit of wiring yet to do and ...vroom vroom.

    You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer. -Frank Zappa

    Weíre tempted to suggest a conspiracy here ó but itís just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply canít conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Very nice, is that a Paxton tucked away I see?
    And why did you pick hydro-boost breaks?
    I'm guessing the size of the vacuum booster.. and hydro looks cleaner.

    All of that plus..hydroboost brakes are so much more powerful too.

    Interesting, I haven't worked around hydro-boost since the eighty's GM diesel era, back then when the engine wasn't running brake pedal when pushed dropped to the floor.
    Is there now a redundancy to keep brakes working with a dead engine?

    Long ago a mechanic a few stalls down was pushed in the shop in a diesel PU and he had no brakes, he trashed a metal workbench and his tool boxes when he couldn't stop.

    ive never seen a hydroboost setup that wasn't simply manual brakes if the engine died. Hydroboost on all of our competition trail rigs.

    I don't know about competition, but it is a 'must have' upgrade for brakes on certain 4x4 boards ... if you don't do a HB your are a poser
