Brief Description:  Engine on & brakes now working.

During the past two days I bolted the engine into place, temporarily installed the cross over exhaust system and then made up the braided brake line hoses down to the slave cylinders.

Had a lot of trouble trying to pump the hydraulic fluid up the lines with an oil can, so after doing a little research on the net, I copied a great idea and went to the local hardware store and picked up a small plastic pump up pressure container, I the changed the nozzle to fitt a clear plastic tube to fit the bleed valve nipple, and the simply blew the fuild up the lines.

This turned out to be a lot easier when you are working alone.

Still a few minor bubbles in the brake lines, so I'll redo the charging of the brake fluid during final assembly.
