    Hell yes, as the two above mentioned, the Willys looks SOOOOO GOOD on the strip and the photo of it beside and then in front of the Chevy...... bloody priceless...

    Steve,
    I'd seen on FB that you'd had some tranny issues, but not the details. Don't think I've ever heard of an automatic locking like that, and then unlocking when dropped down a gear. Can't wait to hear it's all sorted, and know that your grin won't fade for weeks after the first "all in" run.

    While its been dead on here i've managed to get a lot of small updates on the Coupe done, I upgraded the brakes a while ago but found they needed a good hefty push on the pedal to lock them up, first thing was the master cylinder was replaced with a 1" bore Wilwood cylinder and this made a big difference but I still wasnt really happy as they still needed a good push on the pedal when street driving so I decided to go with a remote servo booster, the only problem was a blown motor doesn't make enough vacuum to power one, the answer was to fit an electric vacuum pump.

    Looked at the various kits around and thought they all seem pretty expensive for what the are so had a hunt around on Ebay and come up with a pump and pressure switch for the princely sum of £20 ($30) I think its from a Volvo but they are all pretty much the same thing.
    The servo I had laying around, it was brand new but been sitting on my shelf for about 10 years, a bit crusty but it will clean up ok.

    I mounted the pump in the trunk as I didn't know how noisy they were and there wasn't much space up front. The pump is mounted on 4 factory rubber mounts. The vacuum pipe runs through the floor and along the frame to the front mounted booster, its 1/2" rubber vacuum hose at the moment as thats all I had !!! But will replace it with 1/2" aluminium hard line later.
    A relay for the pump is mounted on the rear bulkhead.











    The servo is mounted under the front of the drivers side fender on a couple of fabricated brackets.












    A clean up and a splash of satin black paint and it all looks pretty tidy.

    For those who may not be familiar with the name, Goodwood is one of, if not THE premier automotive event in Great Britian - https://grrc.goodwood.com/#wEffKqGr3GpLgsg2.97 To be invited to attend with any car is enviable, and with a one-off tribute gasser is quite an honor. Good for you, Steve!

    Steve Lang Update

     



    Hello Paulsx,
    Unfortunately Steve passed away in 2017. His car building skills were top notch and he was a great friend

    I miss his tips, tricks, posts, and builds! I recently found 2 Willys steel coupes in southern Iowa and instantly thought of Steve.
