Looking good as usual. I really like the magazine montage. I should get a print copy. I wonder if it may still be on the news stand being the last.

Looks great. In The News did mine too back in the day. They do nice work. Mine hangs in the garage now next to the car.

I'm surprised you went to the smaller diameter slave with the twin. I actually preferred the larger one since it required less throw. Then again, my twin was an old, non-gear drive Quartermaster. Maybe they release a bit different. With my single I'm back to the red 3/4" slave.

Quoting bobdole:
Looks super nice.


Thanks, Charles. Digging the new Delica!


Quoting CutlassJim:
What are the sources of the two different slave cylinders?


The green is OEM, the new one I picked up from RockAuto.

Doubt it, but you may get lucky. I tried to pick up a few copies late in the month and they dried up quick.

Pedal pressure was never an issue, so the travel is what I was after. It's a struggle to drive on the street with the twin sometimes. I was just trying to get some extra travel, which I hoped would make it a bit more tame. It definitely helped, but it's still a bitch in heavy traffic, and stop and go. I do miss the drivability of the single disc setups, but then again, I don't really drive the car enough for it to really bother me. It does shift like butter at 9k, so there's that as well...

Brett, have you put a 2g accumulator on your car? With the 2g FWD slave, and the accumulator, it slows it down and gives you a bigger window so you get some actual feel. People who haven't driven a twin still had problems driving my car smoothly at first, but it's definitely much easier once you get a couple miles with it. The hardest part was that I bought a brand new accumulator, and the OEM hydraulic line is NLA so I had to make my own. I'm SS to the accumulator, and then hard lines on the accumulator & accumulator to slave for mine.

I knocked out a few little projects on the Galant over the lest few months. I started by replacing all the turbo coolant lines with stainless braided lines. I added DEI fire sleeves to hopefully extend the life of the lines since they see so much heat due to the proximity to the turbine housing.

My battery sh*t out. The car usually sits for long periods of time, and I never remember to put it on the tender. I think age and the lack of use took their toll finally, so I just picked up a new Optima red top. I remember back in the day when you could pick one of these things up on sale for $119 bucks, these shits are expensive now!

In a last-ditch effort to make my QM twin more tame and streetable, I decided to add the 2G clutch accumulator everyone always suggests. All said and done, it made a tiny improvement, but overall the clutch still sucks ass to drive on the street. I think I can chalk it up and say there's nothing I can do to make this thing anymore enjoyable to drive when I'm not balls out banging through the gears...She's just never gonna be a lady in the streets.

Found what were probably some of the last Super Street hard copies left on the shelf in the San Francisco airport while I was flying on business. It was cool I found a few of the older issues featuring the Galant, but also sad knowing these copies would be some of the last ever to be seen on the newsstands.

Hey Brett,

How about some photos of those turbo braided lines installed? I'd like to see how that worked out.

Sizes? What are the push lock type fittings for, one of the water lines?

Thanks.

if you got extra copies, I'd buy one from you. I was never able to find one in print sadly /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif
