With show day now only a couple of days away, the rush was on. I had a car on stands, with a diff on the ground. Not ideal.
Well, it has been an interesting time on the TVR front. Most recently, I have been dealing with one of those “why did I start this” jobs on the car.
With the KJet Cologne firing on all cylinders, the next step toward a WOF was to look into the brakes and why they shudder horribly.
In the quest to both right previous wrongs and make things on this car actually work, I had to have a look at the braking system. It worked, kinda, but needed to be better.
As the first step to sorting out the issues needed to get Snicket on the road, I decided to remove the radius arms, so it also knocks out two jobs in one.
I know I have covered replacing the hand brake cable on Effie before, but having done it again on Tess this time, I have some new insights to share.
People have asked why I do what I do; buying broken cars and fixing them. It’s because despite all the blood, sweat and swears, it’s fun and nothing beats the satisfaction of that first drive.
Like all the cars I obtain, I don’t mess around, so today I tore into the brakes to replace the leaky cylinders.
These brakes have been the bane of my existence, but finally, I may have them sorted.
