    i think i pulled my head out of my ass and went new old skool.... 4-7 psi fuel pump is too much for a motorcycle carb... normally gravity feed. friend reminded me of the kawasaki ZX11 used a elec FP on a set of carbs.... and it on/offs as the float valve opens. sooooo i knew i built a 95 ZX7 23-24 yrs ago and saved the FP.... where is it hidden in my pile of crap..... 2nd box found it.... lubed it up to determine direction of flow.... installed..... runs ..... does not puke fuel out of the carb! shuts off.... if i open the valve to the return.... pump turns on.... shut valve.... pump turns off. since the rev doesn't work.... i tried to push it backwards.... friggin front wheels locked up.... ended up pulling the calipers apart and cleaning everything and honing the cylinders..... wow... i think the gunk is gone. .... tomorrow is try to fix reverse problem... i think since i shortened the shift rod ..... the reverse switch is binding with the shift rod.... gunna try to remove the switch and plug the hole. then add a toggle switch for reverse

    ok todays adventure.... pull the trans..... again..... glad i got it down to about 14 minutes. pulled the tail housing off and the shifter housing..... i seriously think my trans had a different lockout mechanism.... when i had the transmission vertical..... it would shift to reverse.... looked deep into the shifter housing... there is a shift detent and spring that has a broke spring.... it is kicking my butt.... so i removed it.... it hauls ass and goes into reverse. I AM GOING TO CALL THIS A MAJOR WIN. future .... instrumentation.... tunes.... wheels and lopro tires . probably going to swap the U14T springs onto the cushman struts to get rid of the positive camber..... and install a toggle switch for the back up LED light ...... the lifeless blob of afterbirth is runnin and driving YEAAAAAAAAAA

    todays adventure..... since the back up light needed a lens.... i bought a 1000 Lumen square light to swap in for less. cut the back panel to fit will blend it in when i get it ready for paint. added a toggle switch to turn on the back up light since i chopped the shift rod and the ball brg has nothing to sit on. it was an industrial truck..... it has a back up beeper.... kinda kewl. modded the center console to fit better. new trick i figured out..... cheep plastic interior pieces that get all chalky.....run a heat gun over it and it micro melts the chalky shit back into the plastic!!!!! test drove it up to the neighbors....the front brakes locking up... again.... verified not the booster.... going to start looking for new flexi brake lines.... only way to get it back to the house..... crack the bleeders to relieve the pressure. happy happy joy joy joy.... it's all good.

    There is a anti-bleedback valve on disc brake systems, which maintains just a little pressure so teh pads don’t retract. It could have something clogging it so it isn’t allowing any bleed back. Have you tried bleeding the brakes until you get new clean fluid out?

    pumped a big bottle through the system and cleaned and honed the front calipers.... fluid comes out pretty good.... i'll ckeck all the fitting this weekend and see if something else is blocked.... they go to crap after about an hr of running and getting the fluid temp up..... next monday,, worst case.... new lines.

Went to a hydraulic hose shop...he basically said he was too expensive (didn't want to work)...and take to auto parts store.....wtf....went to O'Reilly and tried matching them up...on order...only thing we couldn't figure out was. Are they fine thread ends...will find out when they show up

    I hate dealing with brake lines. I like getting AN conversions and just using dash- line on them. Still need to figure out the proper thread though.

    When I did my brakes, last yr., I also went to O'reilly's, and they let me take a look at there metric selection just like we used to, in the old days! I was able to match up, everything that I needed, brake hose lines, and short, nickel copper lines! I love that stuff! I wish that I could remember what size thread, it was. I do think that I took the right size metric bolts, and matched up that way!

    4 of the 5 brake lines worked..... had to drill out the mount holes to get them to clip in.... funny it was the line to the rear that was the wrong thread pitch will get a new one in the future....installed, bled, another set of cushman wheels with almost new good year tars( still got the tits on them.... light dry rot) haulled ass to the gas station couple miles down the road. brakes appear to be good. the front springs from the cushman van might be a lil stiff. hit a bump and everything on the dash... moved to the floor or my lap. overall i think it will make a nice local back roads truck.
