  1. dr914, my rubber brake hoses were very bad, along with the inside of the wheel cylinders being rusting and rough. I am back from Vacation, plan on doing the back brakes this week, then bleeding and hoping I have acceptable brakes do I can enjoy driving the car. Thanks Bob
  2. the linings are old in age, with little miles on them. I did not change those out. I will keep this in mind if what I have done so far does not correct the issue. I just got the starter back in and found out I left the key on so now I am having to charge the battery before I can see if I made any improvement. But that will have to wait until tomorrow as my body has had enough for today. lol Thanks!
  3. I am sorry for not posting anything, technical issue with my brain. I have a hard brake pedal, so far I have had the booster rebuilt, tested the vacuum valve inserted in it and all vacuum hoses, and have now replaced my wheel cylinders and brake hoses on the front of the car. I found my rubber brake hoses to be in very bad shape, maybe original? My wheel cylinders where full of rusty looking brake fluid and the inside walls where rusty and rough. I have new steel brake lines as well so they should be fine, no rust. I now plan to bleed the brakes and see what I have as far as my brake pedal goes. When I get back from Vacation I will be going through the back brakes as I am sure I will find the same thing there. I am hoping that as I have a read on this forum that my brake hoses were bad and collapsed causing this issue or that the old wheel cylinders condition were preventing them from work correctly. I will leave feed back on what I find. BTW, what should my vacuum pressure be coming out of the line that goes to the booster? I have not been able to get a good reading on this yet but plan on doing this once I can start car. But before I can get back to the brakes I have to reinstall my starter that went bad during this process. ( I had sleepy hollow in Canton Ga rebuilt my starter. $95, great people) I cant seem to fix things fast enough and stay ahead of the issues that come up. OLD CARS! lol
  4. Car runs great. Never heard of the issue you mention Arnulfo? I spoke with Russ Martin during the rebuild and followed his advice, this never came up that I recall? It has been a while though.
  5. Thanks for the information and advice Winston.
  6. needs headliner installed. new wood, heater core. upholstery is in good condition. Front seats redone.
  7. All numbers match. 75,000 miles. less then 1000 miles on engine and trees rebuild.
  8. yes it is a small emblem GS
  9. not making any offerings. nothing to gain. just looking for an approx value to help me decide on selling it or not.
  10. Thinking of selling my 65 Riv. Car has been in my family since 1967. Rebuilt motor, Trans. No rust. Needs someone to finish off the interior. Any thoughts on Value?
  11. When I turn my car over it fires and will run as long as the key is engaged. Once the key is let off it dies. I noticed my ground strap is broke? Could this cause this issue? What other places should I check. Thanks Bob
  12. I need one headliner bow clip for my headliner on a 65 Riviera. Can anyone help me out? Thanks Bob
