I have thought about offering to install or help install the kits
I think I made about every mistake Possible. It was odd, I consider myself an advanced DIY wrench but I had some preconceptions about how vacuum brake systems work that were wrong and some things that I never would of thought would affect the way the switch and sensors work did affect them. At one point during the process I could not get the system to hold vacuum and I went through a series of checks over a couple of days that lead me to think that almost each part in the system was faulty or leaking. Later I confirmed that none of the parts were faulty or leaking...arrgh.
Fortunately, Ian, the guy selling the kits is very patient, knowledgeable and helpful. Made it through!
I would love to fly to Denver and help install the kit...but by the time I charged a little for my time and the cost of the flight and (I eat a lot :-)) It would probably be cheaper to have a shop do it...and they have to warranty their work.
If I screw up I just shrug and apologize :-)
I think it could be installed over a two long days with a bit of pre work and pre planning, especially if two people were working together.
I ordered two short brake lines from INline Tube with the correct flares and fittings.
The kit comes with brake line and fittings but the "bubble DIN flare" That you have to do on one end of the lines is not common in the cheapy flare kits we get here in the US and I did not want to buy an expensive flaring tool...then I crimped one of the lines I bought when bending it...arrgh. So I took the master cyl assembly to a shop that works on a lot of old british cars and he flared and bent up the lines for me - no problem.
Anyway now I know how and what to do and it would go MUCH smoother.
Cant wait to get some bigger rotors on there.
I will throw this out there - if some one wants help installing one of these kits.
Fly me in Friday
Let me sleep on the couch and feed me.
Give me $1000 - I figure that's $50 an hour.
I will fly out Monday night.
If I spill brake fluid on your fender its on you :-)
Also, you could reach out to Ian and see about looking over the instruction manual.
He currently has 7 kits built up and ready to go!
