    I had to run Klinger out yesterday to free up the lift bay for some work on my nephew's car. When we were all done, I went to move him back inside and the engine would start, run a few seconds and die. I was finally able to get him to move by immediately dumping the clutch and then coasting as the engine sputtered out. The only thing I did to the engine yesterday was fiddle with the throttle linkage, turn up the idle a touch, and after installing a section of shrink tube on the wire I connected the temperature sender. I can't imagine that any one of these would cause the issue.

    I checked fuel pressure and flow and after reinstalling the fuel line was able to get Klinger to fire up and run again. Not a clue.

    Swapped out the front driver side brake wheel cylinder this afternoon. It must have sprung a leak on our last outing as I noticed that the inside of the wheel was wet while it was on the lift a few weeks ago. I have new wheel cylinders, hoses, brake shoes and springs for all four corners. If I recall, we were only able to remove 2 of the brake drums when we were initially checking everything out so I may be in for some fun.

    Front brakes are all done and I have moved to the rear. So far, everything has come apart with minimal fuss. The back driver side drum needed some coaxing with a BFH but it eventually worked its way off. I may replace at least one section of brake line in the back. Have to take a closer look at it where it runs through the retainer clips on the axle.

    Went out and greased the rear wheel bearings this morning. Pretty cool setup - there are plugs on each side near the bottom of the axle. You remove the plug, thread in a grease fitting (I found one that would work on the steering bell crank) and them you slowly pump grease in until an indicator pin on another fitting located on top of the axle starts to rise.
