    Brake Line Size

    Went to start the 1979 Volare up yesterday and brake pedal went to the floor--like stepping on a plum. Checked the master cylinder and it looks empty. I didn't look further but anticipating that...

    Thanks DCAspen Much appreciated. How small of a diff would you say? Looking to put a 77 liner in my 79. Would the plastic covers hide the difference?

    Headliner Interchange?

    Nope; no bends or kinks in the new cable when I put it in. I seem to recall that when I got my 1979 Volare (which had been sitting for a while) the speedo was initially wild but calmed down after...

    Yesterday, I found out why the horns in my 1980 Volare weren't working: the previous owner was creatively using the horn switch to operate the windshield washer pump! He unplugged the horns and ran...

    FYI, over the last week, it seems that the speedometer is quieting down--it's also bouncing around a lot less. Maybe there was a twist in the cable that worked its way out or something.

    Slant Six Dual Exhaust

    Anyone on here running a dual exhaust out of a Slant Six? Hoping to get some ideas/examples for routing pipes under an F-body—specifically, my 1980 wagon. Pictures would be great. Thanks in advance.
