Went in and got a tattoo that incorperated my 59 Toga. What do you think? It looks kinda warped because of the way I was standing, and my shoulder blade was jutting out at the bottom.

And that's why I'm on this forum! To learn from those who have been through this before :D

Where the low pressure hose goes back into the reservoir, the nipple part broke out. I could probably take it in and have it soldered or at least welded I suppose.

Wow, you're worrying about what color to paint the reservoir, I'm looking for a new one due to a leak :D I know the one I have was black the whole way around. Even the cap.

I'll give it a shot. They're not going to charge me for a full bleed, so I figure I'll let them do it :D

Yeah  That's what I was referring to with the lines.  He can buy short pieces, a Tee and out it all together and just rebleed.  I think the fear is drilling and tapping the master.  I sometimes forget I do things different and can do things most can't.  No knocking anyone, I've been doing this for years and have had to do that exact samr thing before.
I had a 57 and a 55 plymouth I had to keep together with a shoe string budget.

<-----This is what I had done. I know, it took a while, but found out that we have another kid on the way, so I'm having to watch the funding a little more. Have to pump the brakes a few times for enough pressure to turn on the switch, and the brakes are a bit spongy. The shop tried just bleeding the portion they worked on, but that didn't work too well. It's going back in Wednesday for a FULL bleed. Hope that works :D

Thanks for all the kind words guys. I guess all that firefighting training in the Navy came to some good at home. I do now have a fire extinguisher, and Autozone did reimburse me for the cost of the parts I had to replace. They're also sending the deffective fuel filter to their main HQ, and took the remaining plastic Duralast (*snicker*) fuel filters off the shelf for the time being. Below are the couple of pictures I snapped of the aftermath:

Here is the filter still in the car.

Well, theres the problem...
And pics from the Car show that I had her in on Sunday:

The little red Karman Ghia was my wife's birthday present. SOOOOO TINY!!!!! LOL.
And a video from that morning. I love pissing my neighbors off at 6 in the morning :D

It never seems to end. Every time something gets fixed, something else breaks!!! Today was a little more dramatic though. Started up the car and pulled it out of the garage to warm up. When I was walking back to the garage, I noticed a trail of something leading from the garage to the car. Went back and looked under the car just in time to see the puddle of gas that had been leaking burst into flame. PANIC MODE!!! Reached in the window, shut off the car, released the parking brake, and pushed it into the street. Watched the flame in my driveway go out, looked up, and there was smoke billowing out from under the hood. Luckilly I was able to pop the hood and beat the fire out with a towel.
What happened? The fuel filter ruptured, started spraying fuel, and somehow ignited. I replaced the filter, the fuel lines, the generator belt, and the air filter. She started right back up after that. I'll get pics posted. I went to autozone (where I purchased the filter) and they told me to pick up the parts I needed, bring the burst filter in, and they would reimburse me for the parts I had to replace. Fun morning!!! LOL

Here is a second solution. Mid 60s Mopars used a simple electric switch that is located on the brake pedal itself. Pedal touches it and it goes off, pedal pushed and it comes on. No fluid to worry about, a little bracket to hold it in place. Talk about even less pain. I think I could get a scan of the wiring from a switch to the switch from my 68 Charger to wire it, but it should simply be the two wires (or one power wire, not sure, body may be ground), to hook it up.
<-----I think I will be doing this one! LOL. Thanks for the help guys!

Hmmm....I'm starting to think it may just be easier in the long run to rebuild the generator. Thanks for the help! I will still post pictures of the mounting for the generator to get tips, because I will eventually want to change out for an alternator.

OK. That's why the brake lights stopped working after the master cylinder changed...need to get something else then because now I have the master cylinder from a 76 dodge dart...LOL

Wasn't sure which section this should go in, since it's kind of a grey area. Got a new brake light switch for the Toga, but for the life of me, don't know where it goes...should have looked into that before hand huh? I've looked, and don't see anything that looks similar to this. Can someone help me out? Give me an area to focus my search, possibly a picture? Thanks!!!

Steve, I know that the head doesn't have any holes for mounting.
The current generator bolts to the manifold. That would be awesome if you were able to find that article Jason. Thanks guys!

So generator went out on the Toga, wanting to switch to an alternator. None of the auto parts stores around here are helpful at all on this situation. Where should I look for an alternator to go on the car, and what would I need to do, if anything, to any of the wiring? Thanks!!
