brake system

Finished up the brake system, except for a few small details.

All lines are bent, secured and tight. Used the same Nicopp lines that are in the fuel system… no rust. Flares and hardware are standard 45* double flare. Time for reservoirs. Stock F5 has you using 1 reservoir to feed all the brakes. I want to do a little more for safety, so I am installing 2 reservoirs, 1 for front, 1 for rear. Then I’m doing a hydraulic clutch, so I need another for that. I like the F5 reservoirs, so got 2 more. I made a mount to hang these 3 reservoirs out of .04 aluminum and some 3/4″ angle.

Here it is test fitted and clecoed in place.

These are installed just in front of the drivers footbox in the engine compartment.

Just need to get some adapters and install the hoses, then the brake system is ready to be filled, leak checked and bled.
