Thus far his mech isnt returning our calls and its not really safe to drive... but that old man has a major stubborn streak.
Will the Abs mod go right back on the new master? The book says something about special tools... but the new master dosent look that complicated.

Also... no brake pressure on the driver side.... never seen this one before... but It could be either part.

Its a diaganol braking system, you may have a bad psitojn in the MC.
Its safe to remove it, its just plumbing and a flow through design. But you should look in a manual or find a lumina community (there is one for everything why not this) and check.

The Haynes book says dont take it apart.... but it looks fairly simply... 2 connections and I think.. 2 bolts to the master.... the master itself has 2 bolts to the vac assist.
I just dont want to take it apart and have to tow it to get it finished...

Also reminds me that we tried to bleed the master/abs mod... Only one would bleed and the other had no pressure. But I think we are back to the master again.
There are 2 bleeders on the ABS Mod.

From that page i can see why they would want people to shy away from it, but its a haynes manual, they go where no man (chilton) has gone before.
I dont like haynes.... never seems to go into detail and in this case... maybe even incorrect.

Told my Dad what to get and I should finish it on sunday, Should be an easy 90Degree bend to the slave.... Gave this the part of the old line to match it up.

The link was a must... w/o the computer dongle to tell the abs modual to use the back brakes it could have taken a while to figure out that all you had to do was drive back and forth a bit. I would have figured it out but the link was a big help.
So My Dad is very happy.... And I learned a bit about ABS... early GM abs anyway.
Thanks for the help!

But this made both my folks happy....
My Dad is my Mom's world....
Meanwhile.... this car seems to need a fan... got maybe 2 coolant leaks and has a bad sensor (coolent level). Can you say Freeze out plug?

I doubt I can screw it up much more then GM has already.

I think im going to have to do this and may be twice.... do you have a blowup/procedure to remove the intake for this engine?
Looks like I remove the plenem (spelling?) and under it is the intake and all the injectors....it looks like you can pretty much pop out the center... w/o removing the injectors...
What ya think?
